Cedar Shingles and Shakes
Cedar shingles installed are an environmentally sound roofing product that we have much experience in installing across Wells, Somerset, Bath, Poole, Bourmouth, Weymouth, Newforest, Salisbury, Central London, Kennsington, Chelsea, etc. Cedar shingles maximise the yield from felled trees, using parts of the log that would be otherwise scrapped. This renewable resource is the ideal roofing material for an eco-friendly house build.
Cedar shingles give a very natural and aethetically pleasing look to a building and are surprisingly durable, making for a long lasting roof covering. Cedar is much more resistant to rot than other woods, and another interesting fact is that Cedar shingles have higher natural insulation properties than any roofing material currently available. As a specialist roofing contractor, we have installed cedar shingles on new build properties as well as on restorations jobs. Cedar shingles are particularly resistant to wind and storms, and as such are particularly suitable for coastal locations such as Wells, Somerset, Bath, Poole, Bourmouth, Weymouth, Newforest, Salisbury, Central London, Kennsington, Chelsea, etc.
We only install cedar shingles that have been pre-treated, protecting the shingles from the elements, resulting in even less chance of mould or decay. Cedar shingles require careful installation with airflow around them so they can breathe and dry after absorbing moisture. As experts in our field, our installation work is performed carefully to avoid cupping and warping.
