4 Features That Make Anbrook the Best Cedar Roofing Choice
Even with newer roofing materials available, many homeowners still prefer traditional options like cedar shakes and shingles for a rustic look that can’t be duplicated by other roofing materials. Colonial Remodeling is a roofing contractor that offers Anbrook cedar shake shingle roofing. Allow us to discuss the features that makes Anbrook the superior cedar roofing choice:
Available in Different Styles and Thicknesses: Many cedar shake and shingle suppliers offer only one or two styles, which severely limits your choice of how thick or how smooth you want your cedar shakes and shingles to be. Anbrook offers several styles, including tapersawn shakes, split and resawn shakes, and shingles in varying thicknesses. This gives you more flexibility to choose how rough or how uniform you want your roof to look.
Strong and Durable: Cedar roofing has been proven to withstand up to 130 mph winds, or the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane. Its rugged construction makes it less susceptible to storm damage. Anbrook offers hand-selected cedar shakes and shingles, expertly cut to ensure consistent thickness across the entire roof.
Excellent Insulation: Anbrook cedar shakes and shingles are sourced from healthy, mature cedar trees. The wood fiber density has the highest insulation value compared to other cedar products and substitutes. It works just like a cool roof, in that it can dramatically reduce the amount of heat absorbed through the roof. With proper attic insulation, only minimal heat will get through to your indoor living space. This doesn’t just make your home more comfortable on hot days; it also helps reduce your indoor cooling requirements.
Environmentally Friendly: Anbrook cedar shakes and shingles are sourced from Canadian forests managed by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative. Only 25% of all forests in Canada are used for commercial purposes, and a mere 0.5% of these forests are harvested annually. Old cedar roofing is highly recyclable, and only a small fraction ever ends up in landfills. Since cedar isn’t treated with chemicals that could leach into the earth, it biodegrades like any other dead tree would.
