Cedar Shake Roofing
Cedar shakes and shingles have been around for more than 200 years. Their natural beauty and architectural versatility have made this material a favorite among architects, builders and homeowners. Cedar lends itself to patterned roofs ranging from “fancy butt” shingles to “ocean wave” patterns. Cedar shakes and shingles are built to withstand the elements such as winds exceeding 120mph, extreme temperatures and freeze-thaw conditions found across North America. Cedar’s cellular structure makes it an excellent insulator, keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Both fire-retardant and preservative treated cedar shakes and shingles are available carrying warranties from 20 years to 50 years. Smooth-sawn shingles, rough-hewn split cedar shakes or thick taper-sawn shakes will enhance your home’s appearance.
Composition (Shingle) Roofing Material
Composition roofing comes in an extensive choice of patterns, styles, and colors. Composition shingles are the most common application today.
One of the newer and most popular composition shingles today is the laminated shingle also know as architectural or dimensional shingles. These shingles distinctive in their design have had at least two shingles laminated together to create the illusion of depth.
The colors and color blends of the shingles are seemingly endless and vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. The laminated shingles all carry limited lifetime warranties.
The ridge cap is made in two styles: the standard or flat ridge and the high-profile ridge. The high-profile ridge has a look similar to tile and accents hips, ridge and rakes.
Typical composition installation involves underlayment, flashings, vents, fasteners and shingles.
Underlayment: Acting as a moisture and condensation barrier, it comes in saturated felt and self-adhering membranes.
Flashings: Usually pre-painted galvanized steel 28 gauge or thicker, is used on perimeter of roof and where shingles meet penetrations such as walls, chimneys, skylights, etc.
Vents: Used to circulate air in attics or confined spaces. Vents help keep condensation from forming during cool weather and extreme temperatures during hot weather. There are typical square gravity vents, power vents and ridge vents which can be concealed underneath the ridge caps.
Fasteners: Galvanized hand nails, coated pneumatic coil nails and zinc-coated staples. Coil nails and staples also come in stainless steel.
