Natural Ventilation and Insulation
The essential benefit to you of a Western Red Cedar roof is that you will stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter, greatly increasing your comfort level and reducing your heating and cooling energy requirements!
Western Red Cedar has a unique cellular composition that provides a natural insulation resistance. The rating ranges from 1 to > 1.6 (depending on the cut) versus other common manufactured roofing products of <0.1 (metal) to 0.6 (asphalt shingles).
Western Red Cedar is dimensionally stable, absorbing or discharging moisture to maintain equilibrium with it's immediate atmosphere.
Durable and Termite/Insect Resistant
Cedar's natural oils make it virtually maintenance free and extremely durable in external applications.
The natural oils protect the Cedar from weathering, decay, mould and insect/termite attacks.
A Cedar Shake roof is very light, averaging 23kg per square metre. Western Red Cedar is the only building material that breathes and provides an extra degree of ventilation.
Cyclone & Hail Resistant
Western Red Cedar shake roofing is tested and effective against 130mph hurricane force winds (Category 3 cyclone) and demonstrates outstanding rigidity against pounding hail.
Sustainable and Renewable
Western Red Cedar is the ONLY roofing product that is:
ZERO carbon footprint
“Western Red Cedar and other species in British Columbia forests are harvested under a sustainable yield policy which guarantees forest regeneration and biological diversity”
“Cedar shake and shingle production, which is virtually pollution free, is a secondary operation utilising waste residuals from British Columbia’s main logging and sawmilling industry.”
By-products from shake & shingle manufacture are used as hog fuel & biomass. The latter in most cases used to fuel the sawmills.
Canada is recognized as a leader in sustainable forestry initiatives and third party forest certification
