Cost and maintenance are the only cons to western red cedar shingles and shakes. Compared with other roofing materials, such as the popular asphalt shingles, cedar roofing shingles are more expensive and cost more to install. But when you consider that your home is perhaps the largest investment of your lifetime, it makes sense to top it with a high quality, long-lasting roofing material. Top quality roofing, like cedar wood, comes with a higher price. However, over time, the longevity of cedar wood roofing provides a higher return on investment.
When it comes to roof maintenance, just about all roof types need some form of care to ensure their performance. Cedar roofs require regular maintenance to prevent moss, mold and mildew growth. However, there are cedar treatment preservatives that can be added during the crafting process to prevent fungal growth and preserve the wood.
