Types of Cedar Roofing

There are two types of cedar roofs that are typically confused by most: cedar shake roofing and cedar shingle roofing.

Cedar Shake vs Cedar Shingle

The main difference between these two types is that cedar shingles are factory cut, so each panel is going to be precisely the same size. Cedar shakes are split by hand and consequently, won’t all be the same.

This may not seem like a big difference, but the decision is an important one because it will change the look of your home. If you want a more rustic look for your roof, cedar shakes will be the way to go. On the other hand, it’s essential that a cedar shake roofer installs the material since they can create gaps due to their non uniformity which can be affected by inclement weather. However, for both options, professional installation by a cedar roofing contractor is highly recommended to ensure the best possible results.

The strength of your cedar roof also depends on the thickness and which part of the tree the wood was cut from. When you’ve got a thick cut of wood, it generally lasts longer, and if your cedar comes from the strongest part of the tree, it will be more durable. Both of these qualities will cost you more and account for the variances in cedar roofing prices.

Both cedar shingles and cedar shakes are lightweight, easy to maintain, energy efficient, and can last up to 25 years. However, cedar shakes are more expensive due to their hand-made manufacturing process.

Pros and Cons of Cedar Roofing

Cedar itself is an incredibly durable kind of wood. After all, cedar trees continue to stand tall through bad weather. But, as with anything, there are upsides and downsides to this roofing material.

The Pros

To start with the positives, cedar roofing is an eco-friendly option, making homes more energy efficient. Cedar is a renewable resource and biodegradable, so if your priority is an environmentally friendly roofing material, cedar roofing could be for you. By insulating your house and allowing it to breathe, it’ll also save you on energy costs.

Cedar roofing gives your home a rustic aesthetic that’s truly difficult to match with engineered products, and you’ll also see that cedar roofing lasts longer than some other kinds of roofing, provided that they undergo proper maintenance.

The Cons

One of the concerns with getting cedar roofing is that it can be more prone to issues including fire damage, drying out and cracking, warping, water damage, and pest infestations. It’s suggested to use fire retardant coatings, as well as treatments for any other potential issues, which are all part of the installation process and requiring of regular maintenance. However, keep in mind that some areas don’t allow cedar roofing due to fire concerns even with these precautions.

Depending on the quality of cedar roofing you decide to go with, it won’t be a cheap project. It’s not the most expensive option available, but it’s certainly not your most budget-friendly either. Not only do you have to think about the cost of the cedar shakes or shingles themselves, but they also require demolition of your old roof and installation costs of skilled contractors.

In addition to these initial costs, cedar roofing also needs a fair bit of maintenance to ensure the lifespan. Apart from the previously mentioned coating maintenance, other necessary tasks for cedar roofing include consistent cleaning to remove moss and mildew build-up, and you’ll even need to remove low hanging trees that can contribute to moisture accumulation.

    I had an amazing experience with Nextgen Roofing. Recently moved to the northeast where the attached garage roof had several small leaks. Matt came out … More and gave me a no-nonsense estimate and also provided me with some helpful information on roofing standards in the NE and gutter maintenance. Then Brian the project manager let me know when to expect the team for the install. Jeremy and the team showed up promptly and did a great job replacing my entire attached garage roof in record time. I did run into a small issue where a minor leak appeared a few days after installation when there was a heavy rain. I let Brian know and sent a few pictures. Brian had the team come out first thing the following morning to assess/fix the issue. Turns out is was due to a cracked chimney slate tile (was not a part of their installation) and water was seeping through the slate underneath a flashing. The team took care of it no questions asked. We have been through a few rains now and its a relief not getting rained on when in the garage. Love the quality of work and transparency. Reasonable pricing as well. Will definitely stick with NextGen for any future roofing/housing needs.

    Our experience with having a new roof installed with NextGen was great from start to finish! Matt the sales rep was very friendly and professional, and … More clearly explained exactly what and how our job would be done, including showing us samples of the materials to be used, which were top quality, with a great warranty. He even went above and beyond by climbing a ladder to help us with removing some baffles on our existing gutters. We were scheduled to have our new roof done sooner than I expected, and the installation crew got the job done in 2 days (we have a complex roof). They were all friendly and worked efficiently, and did an excellent job cleaning up afterward. The foremen, Jeremy and Ryan, were great, and made sure everything was being done correctly and oversaw a great job. I highly recommend Nextgen and would use them again!
