Cassas Bros Construction is the leading general contractor in our local area because of our decades of experience and high-quality products. We install a wide range of roof materials and designs for our customers. We want them to easily find the best option for their home’s particular style. Today, we will discuss the features and benefits of our wood shakes and shingles:
The most commonly used wood for shingles and shakes is western red cedar. This material is durable, and with regular maintenance, a cedar roof can last for up to 40 years. It can also withstand hail and heavy storms. Many manufacturers also treat the shakes and shingles with fire-resistant chemicals to make them safe. High-quality cedar shingles and shakes are also resistant to decay and insects, so there won’t be anything to threaten your wood roof.
Our authentic wood roofing has a natural beauty that no other material can match. Wood shakes and shingles age beautifully with the passage of time, imbuing your home with a sense of history and a quiet elegance. Wood shakes and shingles also have a very distinctive appearance, making them the best choice for many traditional home styles. For instance, they’ll look great on Colonial, Queen Anne or Victorian homes. Wood shakes and shingles also look good on gambrel, hip and gable style roofs.
Choosing wood shingles and shakes for your home can also have a positive impact on the environment. Manufacturers harvest and process cedar shakes and shingles in a sustainable way. It’s a renewable resource that has a long lifespan. This reduces the need for constant roof replacement, reducing resource consumption and conserving landfill space. Cedar roofs also serve as an excellent insulator that can keep your interior temperature stable. This can save you money by making your home more energy-efficient.
Wood shakes and shingles are durable and have a unique appeal. Thanks to the latest technology, modern wood shingles can compete with newer materials. Cassas Bros Construction has over 35 years of experience in roof installation, so we can help you decide if wood shingles and shakes are the right choices for your home.
