Cedar Shake Roof in Plymouth, MN


When it’s time to install a new roof on your home, the material options can seem overwhelming. Before investing in a replacement roof, consider the material best-suited for your architectural style, aesthetic vision, and budget.

If you’ve thought about moving beyond asphalt roofing to something more attractive and distinctive, consider the benefits of a cedar shake roof.

Wood shake roofs provide character. They enhance the warmth and beauty of your home in a way asphalt and composite shingles simply cannot. They are also eco-friendly! Made from a natural, renewable resource, cedar roofing can be purchased from companies with sustainable harvesting techniques.

Wood shake roofs have up to two-times the insulating value of asphalt shingles and their cellular structure make them an energy-saving addition to your home during summer and winter. And because they’re able to tolerate heavy rain, harsh winds, and hail, cedar shakes are a resilient roofing option, even in Minnesota’s ever-changing climate.

Due to their timeless look, cedar shakes complement many architectural styles and are highly-adaptable, meaning that when treated with preservatives, your roof will resist fungus, decay, and fire damage for years to come.
