Northwest Feel with Timeless Appeal 

The Pacific Northwest has a long tradition of using cedar shakes or cedar shingles as roofing material. Cedar shake roofs are not only traditional but also durable. In fact, a good quality cedar shake roof can last up to 40 years! When you choose a cedar roof, you will instantly increase the value of your home and add timeless Pacific Northwest appeal.

Benefits of Cedar Roofs

  • Timeless beauty
  • Durability
  • Resistant to severe storms
  • Energy efficient

At Stevenson Roofing, we know how exceptional cedar roofs can be. Did you know that cedar roofs provide a natural insulation up to 2x that of asphalt shingles? This makes them an excellent choice for homeowners looking for an energy efficient roofing solution. We offer a wide variety of energy efficient cedar shingles or cedar shakes in various lengths and thicknesses. Traditionally, cedar shingles come in 16”, 18” or 24” in length and thicknesses that range from ½” to 1” thick. When choosing a cedar roof, in general, the thicker the shingle, the longer the roof life. 

Choosing the Right Roofing Material

When choosing a cedar roof, your options are cedar shakes and cedar shingles. Cedar wood shingles will create a more refined and classic look for your home, while cedar shakes will give your home a more rustic and cabin-like appeal. No matter which wood roofing material you choose, you can rest assured knowing that your wood roof will be Class A fire rated, as well as pressure treated to reduce fungal decay - an especially important feature in the moist and damp Pacific Northwest. 

While traditional cedar roofs may cost more upfront, the long-term benefits are far greater than the initial investment. At Stevenson Roofing, we will perform a thorough inspection of your roof, meet with you personally, and help you choose the best roof for your home.
