Types of Cedar Roofs We Install

There are different types of wood roofing out there. At Legacy Construction, we specialize in cedar shake roofing.

Cedar Shake Roofing

Cedar shake roofing is cut by hand and not by machine. This provides more variance between each piece. Because they don’t all look exactly the same, every cedar roof is unique. However, the different pieces also mean that your roof needs to be properly installed by a knowledgeable professional to ensure there are no gaps in your roof.

The Pros and Cons of Cedar Shakes Roofing

When making your selection of 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

Cedar shakes are one of the most eco-friendly roofing materials available. Not only are they 100% biodegradable, but they are also very energy efficient and durable. Your cedar shake roof can last over 25 years when properly installed and maintained, which is longer than the standard asphalt shingle roof. Additionally, cedar roofs offer a natural beauty to your home like no other.

Cons of Cedar Roofing

There is no roofing material out there that is 100% perfect, so we want to make sure you know what to expect when installing a cedar roof. While cedar shakes are not the most expensive roofing option available, they cost more to install and repair than asphalt shingle roofs. Because they are natural wood, cedar roofs also require more maintenance than other roofing options to ensure that they last their fullest lifespan.

I noticed a "Legacy Construction" sign in the front yard, and called the number. Jerry handled all aspects of my project, and worked with my insurance company to help resolve my claim.
