    Another roofing company installed a new roof on our house after the March 3 tornado and a few years later it began to leak from a wind and rain storm. That company went out of business during the pandemic and so it’s warranty was worthless. … More Force was recommended to us for the repair. I contacted them and Evan came out right away to size up the situation. We received a very reasonable estimate for the materials and work. Without any delay Reynaldo quickly came out and performed the repair in one day. The work was done professionally and looked beautiful with the shingles matching perfectly. I highly recommend Force - they were prompt, reasonably priced and did excellent work repairing our roof from damage caused by Rain, wind, and hail.

Types of Cedar Roofs Roofs We Install

There are two types of cedar roofing to consider: cedar shake roofing and cedar shingle roofing. The strength of both types depends on the thickness and which part of the tree the material was cut from. When your shingles are cut from a stronger and thicker part of the tree, they are going to be more durable (which also means more expensive). Cedar shake and cedar shingle sound a lot alike, so let’s talk about the differences between them.

Cedar Shake Roofing

Cedar shake roofing is cut by hand, rather than by a machine. Because each piece is made individually, there is more variance and the pieces are not uniform. This can greatly add to the aesthetic of your home and give it a more rustic look. However, you need to make sure an experienced roofer handles the installation. If not done properly, the different-sized pieces can leave your roof susceptible to gaps and leaks. At Franklin, we have installed many cedar shake roofs and will make sure your roof is water-tight.

Cedar Shingle Roofing

Cedar cut shingles are factory-made, ensuring that each panel is the same size and width. This makes cedar shingles less expensive than cedar shakes. Like cedar shake, cedar shingles are lightweight, easy to maintain and energy-efficient.

The 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: Cedar roofing material is not only 100% biodegradable and friendly to Mother Earth, but it is also incredibly energy-efficient. It insulates your home while still allowing it to breathe, which saves on heating and cooling costs.
  • Durable: Cedar roofing lasts up to 25 years, which is longer than a standard asphalt shingle roof.
  • Beauty: Cedar roofs are like no other. They add charm to your home that is otherwise impossible to achieve.

 

 

Cons of Cedar Roofing

  • Drying Issues: Since cedar roofing materials are made from trees, they are more prone to drying out. That means your home is more susceptible to fire damage, cracking and pest issues.
  • Expensive: Cedar roofing is not the most expensive roofing option, but it’s certainly not the cheapest. Especially if you opt for cedar shake, you will be paying a higher price.
  • Maintenance: Beauty is pain…right? Just like other beautiful aspects of your home, you will need to spend more time maintaining your cedar roof to keep it in tip-top condition.

Cedar Roof FAQs
