|Cedar Shingle||Cedar Shake|
Red cedar is the most regularly used wood in North America for the purpose of roof shingles and shakes.
Cedar shingles are sawn from wood blocks. They are tapered and generally have a smooth surface. Cedar shakes are split from wood blocks; they are less uniform in thickness than shingles, are sometimes grooved, and often have little taper.
The most important property to consider when buying cedar shingles and cedar shakes is durability, and its resistance to decay. Some woods, such as the red cedar, have natural durability and that makes it the most regularly used wood for shingles. Cedar roofing shakes and shingles also provide excellent insulation as a roofing material.
The most obvious features that distinguish cedar shakes and cedar shingles from each other are their unique visual characteristics. Cedar shingles provide your roof with a more tailored look, while cedar shakes supply a more rugged appearance. Shingles and shakes can be used on sidewalls as well as roofs and come in varying lengths, typically 18 inches for Shingles, 24 inches for the shake and in random widths.
Cedar wood for roofs is a very practical choice, producing a beautiful result in a roofing project. The strength and beauty of red cedar wood for roofs make it a great building material for most any home!
Our cedar roofing offers you:
Our cedar shingles provide your roof with a more tailored look, while cedar shakes supply a more rough-hewn appearance.
Your choice of cedar shingles or cedar shakes will depend on aesthetic effect personally desired for your cedar roofing. But either choice from our will enhance any property for look, performance, and value.
Modified Bitumen Membranes have the flexibility for accommodating stress. The process mixes asphalt with synthetic polymers, which “modifies” the bitumen. The added synthetics give the roof additional flexibility and resistance to environmental stresses, such as UV rays, ozone stresses, extreme temperatures and movement. These membranes are also resistant to heavy traffic, punctures, and tears.

Copper Roofing exceeds all possible expectations for beauty, durability and affordability in a premium roofing product.
A Copper Roof system is designed to look good on any building that would look good in shingles. Only better! Copper’s elegant simplicity works with diverse building types ranging from historic to contemporary and in settings both rural and urban. Their surface weathers gracefully and naturally to a green patina that both protects and adds distinction.
Copper’s longevity is legendary. Almost all of the copper produced throughout time is still in use. In addition to being 100% recyclable, most architectural copper produced today has a recycled content of nearly 75%. Thus, not only is copper the best choice to protect a structure, it’s also the best choice to protect the environment.
When installed properly, copper roofs last a lifetime, as they are resistant to corrosion and fire, and are extremely durable. Copper roofing does not require any decoration, cleaning or maintenance, because of the protective patina developed over time, which heavily reduces your expenses.
It is estimated that 9 out of 10 homes in North America do not have proper attic ventilation. Why? Because most people are unaware that attic ventilation can impact the longevity of their entire home! For example, in the summer, an improperly ventilated attic can cause heat to build in excess of 160°F. This superheated air eventually penetrates the ceiling insulation into the living area below.
A properly ventilated attic can help reduce the load on your air conditioner by moving the superheated air out of your attic before it builds up and causes damage.
In the winter, various household appliances, bathtubs, showers, and cooking vapors can contribute to excess moisture build-up. Improperly ventilated attics will allow this moisture to collect and cling to the underside of the roof. There, it will condense and fall, soaking the attic insulation and reducing its efficiency.
Proper attic ventilation systems allow a continuous flow of outside air through the attic (see illustration at
left), protecting the efficiency of the insulation and helping to lower
temperatures in the living space.
It consists of a balance between air intake (at your eaves or soffits) and air exhaust (at or near your roof ridge).
NOTE: The FHA (Federal Housing Administration)
recommends a minimum of at least 1 square foot of attic ventilation (both intake and exhaust)
for every 300 square feet of attic space. For example, if your attic
is 900 square feet, you need a total of 3 square feet of ventilation.
This amount is generally divided equally between intake and exhaust
ventilation (i.e., 11/2 feet of each), to insure proper air flow through
