Why Choose Cedar Shingles or Cedar Shakes?

Cedar is a type of wood that is naturally grown in Canada. It has a distinct appearance that will get the attention of anyone who sees it.  There are many advantages of cedar that make it an excellent choice for Edmonton homeowners.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    How much spacing does there need to be between cedar shingles?

    Moisture content can vary with cedar and affect how much or how little it may shrink or expand. When cedar wood is dry, it can shrink slightly, and when wet, it will expand. Depending on the moisture content, you can leave 1/8″ to 1/4″ spacing between each shingle.

    Can I powerwash my cedar roof?

    It is essential to maintain your cedar roof regularly, including washing it if there is moss growth. It is important to note that power washing can cause damage to the shingles and to consider using a hose to wash off any debris instead gently. We recommend hiring a professional to inspect and perform maintenance every 5 years.

    Do cedar shingles turn grey?

    Cedar shingles and shakes will gradually fade to a grey colour. The time it takes to fade can depend on your cedar roof’s exposure to sunlight and moisture. The more exposure to these elements, the quicker you expect the fading.  This is a natural part of the aging process.

    Cedar Roofing Options

    Cedar Split Shakes

    Cedar Split Shakes invoke the feeling of a cozy countryside retreat. The shakes are hand split to accentuate their natural grain, lending your home an exquisite texture while adding rustic charm. Heavy and Medium Shakes deliver thick protection and rugged good looks – sure to inspire warm visions of sunny days in any atmosphere!


    Tapersawn Shakes

    Make a statement with your roof! A tapersawn cedar shake has twice the thickness of a Cedar shingle for an enhanced wood effect. They are a hybrid of Cedar Split Shakes and Cedar Shingles. This design creates a more uniform contemporary appearance, making it attractive to architects looking for heavier shadow lines that still provide a clean finish.


    Cedar Shingles

    Cedar shingles are an eco-friendly, luxurious choice to give your home a timeless beauty you will not find with other materials. Sawn on both faces for greater uniformity and smoothness, cedar shingle roofs have been around for over 100 years – why settle for anything less than the real thing?
