The benefits of a cedar shake roof and cedar shake types
If you're considering a new roof for your home in Maryland, you might want to consider a cedar shake roof from Apex Roofing and Construction. Cedar shake roofs are made from thin, hand-split cedar wood shingles that are used to cover the roof. They have a natural, rustic appearance that adds character and charm to any home.
But cedar shake roofs offer more than just good looks. They have several practical benefits as well. For starters, cedar is a durable and long-lasting material. Properly maintained cedar shake roofs can last up to 30 years or more.
Cedar shake roofs are also energy efficient. The natural insulating properties of cedar help to keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, which can lead to lower energy bills.
In addition to these benefits, cedar shake roofs are also environmentally friendly. Cedar is a renewable resource and the manufacturing process for cedar shake roofs is relatively low impact.
There are two main types of cedar shake roofs: traditional and engineered. Traditional cedar shake roofs are made from 100% natural cedar wood and are split by hand. Engineered cedar shake roofs are made from a combination of cedar wood and other materials, such as fiberglass or plastic. These roofs are typically more durable and long-lasting than traditional cedar shake roofs.
