This Large Home in Chester Springs had a cedar shingle roof that was installed with 24″ Royals at 7.5″ Exposure with tin flashings and gutters. We replaced the roof with 18″ 7/8″ Premium grade taper sawn shakes with 18″ UL-rated felt paper interweaved each course and 16 oz copper flashings and gutters.
One of the great things about cedar is that it is one of the most naturally resilient building materials used in the construction industry. When cedar roofing is maintained correctly, it can be expected to last for decades! The natural chemical makeup of cedar gives it a natural resistance to UV rays, moisture, moss, insects, and various pests. When using a professional cedar roofer in Chester Springs, PA, your cedar roofing is also going to be adequately treated with fire retardant making it even more durable!
Cedar roofing is suitable for most climates thanks to its natural weather resistance. The material can withstand a variety of weather conditions without sustaining much damage. This includes snow, rain, storms, and hail. In fact, cedar shingle is well known to recover well from impact damage from hail and will return to an even surface. As long as your cedar shingles are appropriately sealed by your roofer, there should be no problems, even in more extreme weather.
All of the other benefits mentioned are almost like an added bonus to choosing a cedar roof. Most of our customers select cedar purely for the way it looks! Adding a cedar roof to your property gives it a beautiful and distinctive finish. There are a range of shades and textures to choose from in order to achieve precisely the right look for your property.
