Cedar Once Dominated The Roofing Market

Cedar shakes and shingles once dominated the roofing market. The natural look of cedar adds character to a home, and many customers fall in love with its warm, rustic appearance. Unfortunately, the life span of a cedar roof is relatively short compared to its alternatives, especially with the availability of high-quality old-growth cedar on the decline. Cedar remains a popular choice for homeowners unable to resist the natural look. Few home projects can turn out as beautiful as a newly installed cedar roof. For this reason, cedar will always have a place in the roofing industry.

FEATURED CEDAR ROOF

This client's Vancouver home  was roofed with Tapersawn Cedar Shakes. It suits the home's exterior perfectly! In addition to the roof, we replaced all of the fascia boards, also with cedar, painted in the Aura Exterior Paint, Black Beauty color from Benjamin Moore. The roof system incorporates large built-in rain troughs which function as gutters. For these sections, a two-ply SBS torch-on membrane was installed. The perimeter was finished with custom cap-metal flashing with standing seams. New custom chimney caps were also installed.
