Cedar Shakes have become increasingly popular in Alberta for reasons beyond their astonishing looks, Cedar is also known for it's:
- Durability- If properly installed and maintained, a cedar roof may last over 40 years
- Damage Resistant- due to the natural recovery of wood fibres cedar provides superior protection against hail, high winds as well as thermal shock associated with freeze-thaw conditions.
- Ecological- cedar roofs are environmentally sustainable and offer reduced carbon footprints from traditional asphalt shingles
- Curb Appeal- There is no questions that Cedar looks sharp on a home, but even over time cedar shakes age well and their natural colour tone changes to a appealing natural silver-gray colour.
