Types of Cedar Roofs Roofs We Install

There are two types of cedar roofing to consider: cedar shake roofing and cedar shingle roofing. They may sound a lot alike, so let’s talk about the differences between them.

Cedar Shake Roofing

Cedar shakes are hand-cut from blocks of wood, giving them a more rustic appearance. They are also thicker than cedar shingles, making them slightly more expensive and more durable.

Cedar Shingle Roofing

Cedar shingles are machine-cut and feature cleaner edges. They have a smooth surface to produce a more uniform appearance. Depending on which part of the tree they are cut from, they can range in thickness. The thicker the shingle, the more expensive and durable it will be.

Pros and Cons of Cedar Roofing

When making your selection about the type of cedar roofing to fit your needs, there will be pros and cons. We have broken down the list for you: 

Pros of Cedar Roofing

  • Eco-Friendly: Many shakes and shingles are made from salvaged trees that have fallen over from age or have been toppled over by storm. At the end of their service life, they can be recycled into wood chips, mulch, or compost.
  • Durable: Cedar roofing can last 5-10 years longer than asphalt, making them competitively priced with asphalt over their lifespan.
  • Beauty: Cedar roofs have a natural beauty that ranges from rustic shakes to handsome and neat shingles

Cons of Cedar Roofing

  • Expensive: While cedarwood is quite durable, repairs can be expensive if they are required.
    Staining: Staining of the shingles or shakes might occur as natural factors cause tannins to be released from the wood.
  • High-maintenance: Untreated wood shakes and shingles need to be consistently cleaned to prevent the growth of algae or moss, and debris must be cleared off regularly to allow the wood to breathe.

Cedar Roof FAQs

Is cedar the only type of wood shingle out there?

No, you can also find wood shingles and shakes made of redwood, cypress, and pressure-treated pine.

Does it cost more than regular asphalt shingles?

A cedar roof will cost more than an asphalt shingle roof upfront. However, the extra life you can get out of a cedar roof makes it competitively priced with an asphalt roof.

How many years will a cedar roof last?

Cedar roofs can last up to 25-35 years with proper maintenance.

Is cedar roofing fireproof?

There are some areas that are prone to wildfires that prohibit wood roofing, so be sure to check with your building department first. Non-treated materials have a Class C fire rating, but you can also find treated cedar shakes and shingles.

    I contacted Paul after I watched his crew install my brother's roof. 3 Kings Construction is by far the best roofing company I have done business with. Paul Crouse is professional and very knowledgeable. His crew is enjoyable and … More the men are courteous, hardworking and do an amazing job with the install as well as the clean up.

    Paul Crouse, owner of 3 Kings Construction, personally came out to assess the condition of my roof after a recent hail storm. I contacted him after talking with a neighbor who had his roof replaced a few months earlier by Paul's team. … More (He was NOT like the many contractors coming into our neighborhood knocking on doors looking for business!). Paul is a very knowledgeable, upbeat, positive person who was willing to take as much time as I needed to have all of my questions and concerns addressed. After interviewing two other contractors, my decision to go with 3 Kings Construction was an easy one. His easy-going professionalism, strong attention to detail and the concern and respect he has for his crew members were huge selling points for me. Paul gave me a start date and his crew arrived on time, fully prepared to start work. During the two day roof and gutter installation, the crew protected my landscaping, AC unit, patio furniture and fence from roof debris and always left my property neat and tidy. I have not found a single roofing nail! Many of my neighbors have made positive comments about the new roof and gutters as well as the work ethic of Paul's crew. After my experience with 3 Kings Construction, I can see why Paul Crouse holds the status of being one of Owens-Corning's preferred contractors. I am pleased to say I can recommend 3 Kings Construction without reservation.
