A cedar roof can add tremendous value to your home and properly installed, a cedar roof will last for decades. There are basically two types of cedar roofs; shakes, which are split and shingles, which are sawn.
Hand split shakes show the uneven grain of the wood and offer a rustic look. They are rough on at least one side and typically thicker than shingles. They are offered in a heavy type (3/4” butts) and a medium type (1/2” butts). Felt must be used between each course of shakes. The reveal (exposed portion) is typically 10”.
Cedar shingles are relatively smooth on both sides. They have a very uniform and manicured look. These are the shingles used on historic buildings or colonial style homes. They are offered in a variety of different sizes for different reveals. No felt is necessary with cedar shingles.
