Cedar Shakes No Longer Eco-Friendly or Economical

Besides not being a sustainable resource, cedar shake can be expensive to maintain. Naturally combustible, most cedar roofs are treated with chemical preservatives to improve fire resistance. To preserve your wood shake roofing, regular treatments are needed to reduce rotting, warping, moisture absorption, and moss growth. The cost of these treatments can really add up over time.

Wood Shake Wears Faster

The life expectancy of a natural cedar roof is 15 to 20 years, but the material tends to lose its aesthetic appeal after only five to 10 years. What was once a beautiful contributor to your home curb appeal later becomes a major visual detraction.

Asphalt Provides More Options

Some believe composition or asphalt shingle roofing is bland and unappealing because it's all the same color, shape, and style. This notion couldn't be further from the truth. Recent advances have opened up a whole new gamut of design and color options to complement any home and help it stand out in the neighborhood. CertainTeed is one of the leading providers of top-quality materials. Its Patriot line of asphalt shingle roofing comes in an array of color blends and designs for an aesthetic appeal that suits any home type.

Better Asphalt Roofing Warranties

Top-quality CertainTeed asphalt composition roofing comes with a 30-year limited-lifetime, transferrable warranty. It also includes an 8-year SureStart™ warranty that covers labor costs if there's a failure due to manufacturing defects. Also included is a 10-year StreakFighter™ warranty against streaking and discoloration, and a 10-year wind-resistance warranty for winds up to 110 mph. None of those assurances are available with cedar shake roofing.

A New Perspective and a New Roof

The outdated idea of composition roofing being plain and cheap no longer holds water. Replacing your old wood shake roof with new asphalt shingle roofing is a great way to add value and protection to your home while maintaining its aesthetic appeal.
