Cedar & Shake Roof Conversion Experts!
Seen on the tops of homes throughout the west coast of Canada, these shingles are made from Canadian red cedar and give homes a historic look. When settlers first arrived in the Lower Mainland, red cedar was used to build the homes and the roofs of this new community. Today cedar shingles still remain a popular choice for homeowners.
The benefits of using cedar shingles are primarily for having that certain look. Wood shingles are still prone to the same problems that effects asphalt shingles such as erosion from water runoff, loss of oils from heating in the sun and wind damage.
