The Beauty of Cedar Shakes Can Be Seen on Roofs Throughout the Piedmont Triad and Surrounding Areas
There’s just something about the look of tradition cedar shakes. The rich colors. The bold shadow lines that add distinction and dimensionally. Even the way the roof seems to drink in the light and offer it back in a soft glow that evokes a feeling of life and vitality. It’s no wonder so many homeowners are enamored with this roofing material. If you’re searching for a company that can install premium cedar shakes at your home, look no further than ABC Roofing & Exteriors. Since 2006, we have been providing homeowners in the Piedmont Triad and surrounding areas with the roofing products and services they need to keep their roofs in tip-top shape.
Wood You, Could You?
While some homeowners may be hesitant to choose wood over other roofing options because of its perceived vulnerability to rot, insects, and fire, all of these potential negatives can be eliminated with a little regular maintenance. At ABC Roofing & Exteriors, we can provide these services in addition to our premium products and expert installations.
The advantages of cedar shakes go beyond their distinctive appearance and include:
- Impact tolerance – Unlike asphalt shingles that can become brittle as they age, cedar shakes remain relatively pliant, which means they can absorb impacts from hail or falling branches without cracking, chipping, or breaking.
- Thermal performance – Wood is a natural insulator, so it can help keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. In fact, cedar shakes block heat transfer about twice as well as uninsulated asphalt shingles.
- Weather resistance – Cedar shakes hold up exceptionally well against high winds. They also shrug off heavy snow, ice, sleet, and of course pouring rain. What’s more, as cedar ages it acquires a silver sheen, so its beauty evolves rather than fades over time.
