Some clients still prefer the neighbourhood continuity and look of a cedar roof. For these customers we install premium 100% edge grain treated shakes. These shakes are CCA Approved and are backed by a 30 Year Warranty against rot.
As we detailed in our Cedar Conversion Page, Cedar roofs take a beating in our climate. when a cedar shake is made there is a couple things to think about in that process. Firstly the shakes are not from 1st generation trees. We are harvesting trees now that are 2nd and 3rd generation. Almost guaranteed that even within 5 years a cedar roof can look like its double that age.
