After asphalt shingle roofing, cedar roofing is the most common type of residential roofing
material. Why? It adds a quaint, rustic look to your home while still providing superior protection and durability.

The Difference Between Cedar Shakes and Shingles

There are two types of cedar roofing to consider: cedar shake roofing and cedar shingle roofing. Although they are made of the same materials, they have small differences that you may want to factor into your decision-making process.

Cedar Shake Roofing

Cedar shake roofing is a great addition to any home. Not only does it give your property a rustic and charming look, but when properly installed, it can also be incredibly durable. The key to getting the best out of this type of roofing lies in its installation. Because each piece is cut by hand rather than a machine, there is more variance between pieces which can leave gaps and leaks in the roof if not installed correctly.

Cedar Shingle Roofing

Constructed to uniform standards in the factory, you’ll notice that cedar shingles are cut to be consistent in size and width. They’re lightweight, easy to maintain, and energy-efficient, helping keep your energy bills lower throughout the year. With all these benefits, it’s no wonder why cedar shingles are such a popular choice for homeowners!

Why Homeowners Love Cedar Roofing

Cedar Roofs are Sustainable

Cedar roofs are an excellent choice for homeowners looking for environmentally friendly roofing material. Cedar roofs are made from an abundantly renewable resource and are 100% biodegradable. That means, once they reach the end of their service life, they can be recycled, reused, or disposed of in a sustainable manner.

Cedar Roofs are Durable

Cedar roofs are strong and can withstand against various elements: rot, pests, high winds, and hail. Although many believe the cedar roofs are susceptible to fire and moisture, their production and treatment make it so that they are built to last. You can rest assured that your cedar roof will protect your home for years to come.

Cedar Roofs are Natural Insulators

For an aesthetically pleasing roof that helps reduce energy bills as well, there really is no better choice than cedar shakes. They allow heat to escape during hot summer months and reduce cooling costs while providing superior insulation against cold air in the winter. This means you’ll get excellent protection from the elements while enjoying increased energy efficiency at the same time.

  • Avatar Steven Winecoff ★★★★★ a month ago
    We had a roof leak on our 2 year old home. We reached out to Lake City, and other roofers on a Sunday evening and Lake City was the quickest to respond. Sean came out to assess the problem and provide a cost estimate the next day, on Monday.. … More Then later that morning Seth came out to repair our roof in multiple areas. It turned out when our roof was originally installed it wasn’t done properly in some areas.
    We are thankful Lake City roofing came out and quickly and professionally made the repairs.
    We highly recommend this team.

  • Avatar Mr, R Baskin ★★★★★ a year ago
    I called for a bid and Kaden returned my call the following day. He was receptive to our needs and desires and committed to creating an initial quote. Though we've yet to receive a bid (we understand they are busy and did not rush … More LCC along) I was impressed that someone called back
    pretty quickly and that they were willing to listen to us as potentials customers.
    A business that expects to survive and thrive needs to cater to their customer base. Making contact, without delay means something, especially to potential customers who are about to invest in both their property and the roofing contractor who returns their calls and is awarded the contract.
    Lake City certainly makes you feel like you and your business matter to them.
    Though I can not speak to affordability, workmanship, follow-up etc. Lake City is certainly good at contacting and listening to potential clients.
    Give them a call and see for yourself.
    Update: my initial conversation with LCR occurred on March 3, today is 3/17 (Happy Paddy's Day) and I have yet to hear from them. Wait and see what develops...
