Wood siding has advantages and disadvantages, so making the right decision can be difficult. Becoming an informed consumer will help you choose the right siding for your home.

Energy saving wood is an excellent insulator this means during the colder months wood will naturally hold heat inside of the home. It is durable and some types of wood offer some level of fire resistance: for example Redwood. Another benefit that wood siding offer is the finish; it takes stain and paint very well. Wood siding comes in different natural colors and it can be milled into many different shapes and styles creating every style of siding lap possible.

Wood Roofing

Cedar Wood Roofing CT

Wood shingles made from cedar are a popular alternative to asphalt and fiberglass shingles. Their look is one of distinction and strength. The warmth and beauty of a natural cedar shake goes beyond enhancing the appearance of your home. It reflects pride of ownership. Cedar roofs are centuries old and they are what modern man-made roofing materials try to imitate.

Cedar's natural resiliency makes it a strong roof in extraordinary weather situations, including hail and snow. Like any natural wood products, caring for it is very important. Cedar shingles can start to dry, curl, and crack sometimes very quickly. The silver patina that gives cedar its weather-beaten look is essentially the start of fungal growth. Treating your roof every 5 - 7 years can extend roof life by 35 - 50 years. If your roof color has faded noticeably, test it by putting water on it to see if the shingles absorb it. If so, it is time to clean and treat the roof.

Let our professionals install a new cedar roof you'll be proud of for years to come.
