Fire & Wood Roofing

Why Are Wood Roofs So Popular?

No roofing material is equal to cedar shakes & shingles for distinctive appearance, natural character, insulation, or adaptability. Whether urban or suburban, residential or commercial, roofs and walls of cedar shakes and shingles denote architecture of quality and appearance.

No other material is as authentic for restoration of historic buildings that originally were covered with cedar shakes & shingles. Homeowners seeking a rustic appearance often design fences, gazebos, lanais and other outdoor living areas with cedar shakes & shingles. In altitudes above the snow line, shakes afford protection even in sub zero weather. In tropical climates, they form a heavy insulating layer against the sun's scorching rays.

Because of the warmth, charm and "welcome" appearance of beautiful cedar shake & shingle roofs, they have become almost as universal in church and motel design as they have in the construction of modern homes.

Within the last 30 years, the popularity of wood roofing has increased appreciably. A high percentage of new homes in the upper income level have wood roofs. As an example, in 1977 830,000 squares of shakes and shingles were installed in Texas. This represents more than 83 million sq. ft. of wood roofing.
