Cedar shingles offer a finishing touch to a roof of a house, extension or even a porch.
Cedar is one of the most durable of the softwoods and makes a perfect material for house shingles. These shingles can be added to oak frame buildings and other types of constructions to bring their benefits to the project.
Having a wood shingle roof is a traditional idea that has become more popular recently. You might have seen wooden roof shingles for sheds or garages, for extensions to your property and also on homes. That’s because cedar shingles are lightweight, easy to work with and offer a high standard of insulation. They pair with other energy efficiency measures such as double glazing and cavity wall insulation to make your home thermally efficient while looking amazing.
Cedar shingle roof tiles have natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. This means you don’t have to treat them and there is no concern about excess warping, rotting or cracks appearing. Whether you choose to leave them to naturally weather or stain them to keep their colour, you will find they need much less maintenance than other styles of roof shingles. Should you decide to treat them, you will need to re-stain or re-paint them at least once a year to ensure they retain the colour.
Our cedar shingles are suitable for pitched roofs up to 45 degrees and work with 150mm x 50mm oak rafters.
