Cedar Roofing: A Brief Overview
Cedar generally comprises the shingle portion of your roof. It functions as an alternative to asphalt, the material that shingles are traditionally made from. Unlike asphalt, which often requires oil as part of its assembly, cedar is assembled using a relatively simple process — it’s cut down from cedar trees into its small constituent chips, then it’s treated to resist fire.
In addition to their eco-friendly manufacturing process, cedar shingles offer homeowners two other advantages worth consideration:
- They generally last longer than their asphalt counterparts, thus functioning as a great long-term investment.
- They offer great insulating qualities, making your home more energy efficient and saving you money on utility bills
It’s clear that cedar shingles are a wise choice for an individual or family looking to make an impactful, long-term investment in their home’s infrastructure.
