Cedar Shake Roofing
Very piece of cedar shake roofing is individually hand-cut, rather than mass-produced on an assembly line. This leads to more variation and non-uniform pieces, and while this often adds to the aesthetic of your home to provide a more rustic look, experienced installation is a must. If done improperly, the different-sized pieces can expose your roof to any number of gaps and leaks. Crown Exteriors will ensure that your roof is water-tight the first time, so you can relax and enjoy your new roof.

- Longevity: While 25 years is the expected life of cedar, you can get anywhere even more years of life out of your roof with proper maintenance and routine treatments.
- Weather-resistant: When competing against severe weather conditions, cedar roofs stand up well to heavy rains, strong winds, and others. When facing storm damage, they require fewer repairs than other roofing types.
Cons of Cedar Roofing

- Expensive: Cedar is considered a high-end option for roofing due to its natural variety. As a result, it is more expensive than other roofing materials.
- Drying Issues: Since cedar roofing materials are made from cedar trees, they are more prone to drying out than other roofing materials. That means your home is more susceptible to fire damage, cracking, and pest issues.
