Locally Preferred Cedar Roofers Northern Virginia

Installing a cedar roof is beneficial for many reasons. Cedar roofs are durable, long-lasting, and provide protection against the elements. Cedar is a naturally rot-resistant wood that can withstand extreme climates, making it ideal for roofing applications. It is also highly resistant to weather damage and insects. Additionally, its aesthetic appeal adds visual interest and charm to any building or home exterior.

Types of Cedar Roofs Roofs We Install

There are two types of cedar roofing to consider: cedar shake roofing and cedar shingle roofing. The strength of both types depends on the thickness and which part of the tree the material was cut from.

Cedar Shake Roofing

Cedar shake is a type of roofing material traditionally made from split pieces of cedar. It is still popular today due to its attractive and unique look, as well as its durability and ability to weather harsh climates. Cedar shake roofs can last for up to 30 years if properly maintained. They are also highly fire-resistant, which makes them an ideal choice in areas prone to fires or high winds.

Cedar Shingle Roofing

Cedar cut shingles are factory-made, ensuring that each panel is the same size and width. This makes cedar shingles less expensive than cedar shakes. Like cedar shake, cedar shingles are lightweight, easy to maintain and energy-efficient. They’re easier to install and come in different colors and styles that can be tailored to your individual tastes.

The Pros and Cons of Cedar Roofing

When making your selection about the type of cedar roofing to fit your needs, there will be pros and cons. We have broken down the list for you:

 Pros of Cedar Roofing

  • Eco-Friendly: Made out of natural wood, cedar roofs are a sustainable material compared to asphalt shingles or other synthetic roofing materials.
  • Durable: The biggest advantage is that cedar shingles are naturally resistant to rot, decay, and insect infestations. This can add a great deal of longevity to your roof as long as it is properly maintained.
  • Beauty: Cedar roofs are like no other. You will get a natural look with a unique texture to your property, adding to its individual character.

Cons of Cedar Roofing

  • Drying Issues: Natural wood is more susceptible to drying out and will require routine treatment to maintain its durability.
  • Expensive: Cedar roofing comes at a higher price than other roofing materials like asphalt shingles.
  • Maintenance: Cedar roofs require more maintenance due to their vulnerability to moisture and fungi growth.

    If you want any uninterrupted communication with technicians and managment team, choose Gutter Ethics! They will do the job correctly and professionally! However, if non- regular clients need gutter cleaning in foreseeable future call … More them 2-3 weeks ahead. I assume their schedule is filling up fast. A little pricey for gutter cleaning compared to others but understandable Recommend and might use other services they provide in the future.

    I utilized Gutter Ethics on 16 January 2023 to replace the roof of my house and my gazebo on my back deck. They worked very diligently and got done with everything in one day! They are very responsive and have empathy that you do not see … More with many businesses these days. I would highly recommend Gutter Ethics for any of your roofing or other construction needs!

    Gutter Ethics has some high tech systems in place to make you aware of the excellent job they have done. With a roof tune up plus a gutter cleaning, they provided me with 16 still images and one video detailing the work they performed on … More the roof. Our team member was Joe, and he made sure to call ahead before he came by to do the work.This was my first time with the company but I’m impressed with the communication and transparency. The price was also lower than the other quotes I received from similar companies, but that did negate the quality of service.

    I cannot say enough good things about this company! With the heavy rains we had flooding in our basement that we realized was due to our gutters being clogged. Many companies turned us down or said they couldn’t come out until January. … More I contacted them at 9am the Friday before Christmas hoping for availability ASAP. Justin was super professional and understanding. He was able to get a crew to my house within an hour! I am floored by this company’s responsiveness, professionalism, and most of all their price!! I highly recommend them and I WILL be using them again!!
