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.

    Jake was great to work with, very professional and always great communication. He worked with our insurance company and claims adjuster to get our claim taken care of. His installers were very professional, friendly and clean. The job was … More done on the timeline Jake had promised and everything was cleaned up and taken away the day they were finished. I would highly recommend Legacy Construction.

    I needed to replace my 25-year-old roof because of storm damage and age. Legacy inspected the roof and informed me that it required immediate repair to prevent water damage. They put someone up there to repair the roof as a temporary … More measure. The fee for that work was reasonable and was later offset against the cost of replacing the roof. They also identified water damage to some of the siding which they fixed when they replaced the roof. They updated the flashing to code so it wouldn't recure. They did very nice work and thoroughly cleaned up after the job. The roof passed inspection and looks great. They were flexible and easy to work with, a great team.

    From beginning to end of the project we had a great experience with Legacy, due mainly to the incredible service that Sean Dawson delivered. He handled everything for us from liaising with our insurance agent to riding shotgun on the roof … More installation and then ensuring afterwards we were happy with the result. This was as painless as it could get and the result is fantastic.
