Sprague Construction Roofing is one of the top roofing contractors in our local area because of our many years of experience and our high-quality products. We install a wide range of roofing materials and designs, including wood shingles and shakes. Today, we discuss the features and benefits of wood roofing:
No other material can match the authentic beauty of a real wood roof. Wood shingles and shakes age beautifully over time, imbuing your home with a sense of timeless elegance. They also have a very distinctive appearance, making them an excellent choice for many traditional home styles.
Choosing a wood roof for your residential roofing project can also have a positive environmental impact because manufacturers harvest and process cedar shingles and shakes in a sustainable manner. Cedar is a renewable resource that lasts longer than other roofing materials, reducing the need for frequent roof replacement and helping to conserve landfill space.
The most commonly used wood for roofing systems is western red cedar. Wood shingles and shakes made from this material are durable and can last for up to 40 years with proper maintenance. In addition, many manufacturers also treat their wooden roofs with fire-resistant chemicals to make them safe.
