A cedar roof is a thing of beauty.Who wouldn’t be proud of choosing a material that holds up to the elements over time while still retaining its beauty as it ages?Wood is a natural material that is both energy efficient as well as durable.Why is it so important to use an energy efficient product here in Vermont?Just think about the importance of wearing a warm hat in the winter or a breathable material in the summer.Wearing a hat can make all the difference on a cold day whether we stay warm or not.It is similar with using cedar roofing.Cedar is a natural insulator that keeps the heat in when it’s cold and keeps a house cool when it warm. It is a practical choice when wanting to keep energy costs down. As with anything natural, there will be maintenance needed to maintain the wood’s natural beauty over the years but the maintenance will be worth it as your roof continues to hold its value asit ages.
Cedar Shakes & Shingles
Cedar shingle siding and cedar shake siding are two great cedar siding options for setting your home apart from all the indistinguishable and uninspired facades on your block. With cedar siding, you get a look that is beautiful and timeless. In addition, cedar shingles and shakes get better with age as the warm undertones mature into a beautiful lustrous grey patina.
