Cedar roof: Cedar shakes originate from one of the most beautiful trees in the world, the Cedar tree. This type of shake comes with a natural grain as well as texture which offers an interesting complex surface visually. The measurement of these shakes varies from ½ inch to ¾ inch thick. Cedar shakes are considered much heavier and thicker than other available wood shake materials on the market.
The installation of cedar roofing gives natural dimensional shading to the roof, which makes it appear very sophisticated from the street. This type of shake is naturally resistant to water damage, mold and pests.
Pine Roof: Sustainable methods of forestry are used in the cultivation of the Pine trees from which high-quality pine shakes are cut. Compared to cedar wood, pine has been found much stronger and harder.
Pine shakes are an ideal choice for the kind of climates where there is hail and high winds. In order to enhance the longevity of the pine shakes used for roofing, the team at Monsters Roofing impregnates the material with water-protective chemicals and preservatives to protect it from rotting, mold, boring insects, and mildew.
