Cedar Conversion Services
Many homes built in the 1970’s or 1980’s had cedar shake roofs. However those roofs are at the end of their lifespan, and likely need immediate replacing. Cedar conversion is not considered an expense, but as a necessity for most homeowners. Dedicated Roofing & Exteriors provides cedar conversion services in Calgary and the surrounding area.

Cedar Shake is 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.
Cedar Shake Wears Faster
The life expectancy of a natural cedar roof is fifteen to twenty years, although the material tends to lose its aesthetic appeal after only five to ten years. What was once a beautiful contribution to the curb appeal of your home later becomes a major visual detraction.
Asphalt Provides More Options
Some believe composition or asphalt shingle roofing is bland and unappealing as it’s all the same colour, shape, and style. This notion couldn’t be further from the truth - recent advances have opened up a whole new gamut of design and colour options to complement any home, and help it stand out in the neighbourhood.
CertainTeed is one of the leading providers of top-quality residential roofing materials. Its Patriot line of asphalt shingle roofing comes in an array of colour 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, covering labor costs if there’s a failure due to manufacturing defects.
Also included is a 10-year StreakFighter™ warranty against streaking and discolouration, and a 10-year wind-resistance warranty for winds up to 110 mph. None of those assurances are available with cedar shake roofing.
