Cedar roofing is an area that we pride ourselves on. Cedar roofing has many different looks and many different varieties of Cedar. Cedar Perfections give a clean uniform appearance, while Heavy Hand Split Cedar gives a rustic country or mountain retreat look. There are thicker and thinner versions of cedar, as well as longer and heavy versions.
Most Cedar comes from the Pacific Northwest. The Cedar Roofing on roofs should be either Western Red Cedar or Alaskan Yellow Cedar. (Alaskan Yellow is a hard dense wood, not actually a true Cedar.) A common and costly mistake that is made with inexperienced roofers is using Native White Eastern Cedar and this tends to rot out in 7-10 years.
Capping off a cedar roof with copper or installing new copper valleys not just makes a great roof stand out even more, it helps the longevity of the roof. Copper helps prevent organic growth on a cedar roof, so everytime it rains and the rain runs down off the copper onto the cedar roofing, the process is protecting the roof.
