Cedar Shake  Roofing


Living in the Midwest homeowners know they need to choose a roof that is durable and built for the local climate.

A cedar shake roof not only gives you the durability you need, but a truly beautiful and stylish roof.  Unlike asphalt shingles installation, cedar shake installation doesn’t require heat for a seal to adhere. Cedar is the most energy-efficient roofing offering excellent strong weather resistance.

With Midwest temperatures and weather conditions you want a roofing contractor that is an expert with cedar shake installation, so your new roof will beautifully last for years to come.

Benefits of Cedar Shake Roofing:

While asphalt shingles might be the more common choice for roofing in the Midwest, cedar shakes are a traditional and environmentally friendly option that gives your home a unique look. Cedar shake roofing comes with many benefits that make it a superior choice for a new home roof:

  • As the only roofing material that can be maintained to prolong its service life, cedar shake roofing lasts for decades longer than some other roofing materials.
  • You’ll get the highest R-value with cedar shakes, giving your home superior efficiency that is more than 4x the efficiency of typical shingles.
  • Compared to other natural roofing materials, cedar shake roofing is remarkably affordable and offers timeless beauty and curb appeal.
  • The weather in the Midwest can be extreme, but cedar shake roofs are designed to deliver impressive wind and hail resistance—protecting your local home from the elements.
  • The sweet aroma of cedar lingering for weeks after the install is delightful.
