Cedar shingles are the only renewable roofing resource with a 50+ year life expectancy and R-Value insulation four times that of cement fibre.
Cedar shingles, shakes, and hip & ridge roof tiles have been used for hundreds of years and have proven their durability in all kinds of climates. They can be used to create a traditional or modern look, and their rich, warm colour and texture blend beautifully in any natural environment. The natural effects of ageing and weathering give an attractive silvery grey colour in time.
Tile production, which is virtually pollution-free, is a secondary operation utilising waste residuals from British Columbia's main logging and sawmilling industry, providing a truly sustainable and environmentally friendly product.
