Alternatives to Cedar Shake Roofing

Alternatives to Cedar Shake Roofing

Cedar shake roofs were popular in the 1970s and 1980s, which means there are a lot of roofs out there that are in need of a replacement. Cedar is losing popularity, due to the high level of maintenance it requires to look great. To keep it from looking worn, rotting, and to make it more fire resistant, a chemical must be applied to the roof. If you’re tired of your cedar roof and ready for a conversion, Dedicated Roofing & Exteriors in Calgary can suggest other alternatives. 

Metal roofing

Metal roofing comes with a long lifespan, 50 years or more, making it a good investment for your home. This isn’t the only benefit of choosing metal either. It comes in numerous colours and styles to improve the curb appeal of your home. Metal is a very strong and durable material and will stay looking great for decades. It’s also low maintenance, impenetrable, and will protect your home from snow, rain, sleet, and wind. It helps reflect the sun’s UV rays away from the home, which can help your home stay cool in the summer. Metal roofing is growing in popularity with homeowners because it is often referred to as the last roof you’ll ever buy!

Asphalt roofing

Asphalt roofing is a common roofing textile, making up about 70% of homeowners’ roofs. These shingles are incredibly versatile, coming in different colours, shapes, and styles. Asphalt is cost-effective and is very energy efficient. The installation process is also one of the easier ones, making it a quicker roofing project. The easier installation, compared to other roofing materials, is also part of the reason why it’s less expensive than the other options. Consider these benefits of asphalt roofing when re-roofing your home. 

Slate composite roofing

Slate composite roofing is less common but still comes with advantages that make it worth considering. This roofing option is a lightweight material. However, the installation process is tricky. Installation from an experienced professional is necessary to avoid cracking the slate. While slate may come at a higher cost, depending on the brand chosen, it’s very durable roofing material. It’s built to withstand UV rays from the sun as well as any storm damage. Some slate roofing products are more eco-friendly, depending on the mining and manufacturing process. Slate composite provides a unique and high-end look, while still providing the benefits you want out of your roof.
