Cedar shakes and shingles have a special warmth and elegance, an architectural look that states classic quality, taste, and timelessness. Aside from their aesthetic value, they are lightweight, as well as wind and impact resistant. Cedar roofs withstand the freeze-thaw cycle, and their natural oils resist decay. Cedar is one of the only renewable roofing products on the market today. A truly green product that keeps your house cool in the summer and warm in the winter

The natural, tailored look. Smooth-sawn, architecturally uniform cedar shingles are preferred for their natural, tailored appearance. They’re ideal for both traditional and modern structures.
