Cedar shingles are the only renewable roofing materials resource with a 50+ year life expectancy and R-Value insulation four times that of cement fibre.
Western Red 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.
Western Red Cedar is renowned for its insulation qualities, dimensional stability and natural resistance to the elements, making it ideal as a natural roofing solution. It contains a natural preservative which makes the wood extremely durable in its natural state.
