Another advantage of a cedar shingle roof is the beauty of the shingles. Cedar shingles add an organic and natural element to the home’s roofing, and the shingles age majestically turning a silvery gray color as the years go by. As a roofing material, cedar shingles are quite long-lasting, and they are resistant to severe weather such as wind from hurricanes, hail, snow, and torrential downpours.
Cedar shingles do require regular maintenance, however. Without regular care, they are prone to growing a layer of moss, mildew, or mold. There are preservatives that can be added to the cedar shingles to lessen the effects of this natural process.
Cedar Shingles can be a less budget-friendly option, but with the durability and long lifespan, the cost is usually considered to be worth it.
