Cedar Roofing: Why It’s Great
When we talk about cedar roofing, what we’re really talking about is cedar shingles, the cladding that makes up the surface of your roof. Cedar shingles are manufactured using a minimally intrusive process relative to their biggest rival, asphalt. They’re milled from cedar trees, cut down to size, and often treated to resist fire. Asphalt shingles, by contrast, are often made with oil, a less environmentally friendly option.
Cedar shingles last quite a while longer than their asphalt counterparts and offer superior insulating qualities, distributing heat evenly throughout your house and reducing your energy bills.
