There are two main kinds of cedar wood used in crafting roofing systems, they are red cedar and white cedar. Red cedar is the higher priced of the two because of its extremely high quality, a key factor when considering cedar wood for the roofing of your home. That’s why we’re partial to Western red cedar shingles. Besides its strength and longevity, Western red cedar wood is naturally resistant to rot and insect damage, can withstand varying temperatures and climates, and contains tannic acid, a natural preservative.
White cedar is a less costly alternative and ages attractively to a silvery grayish hue. Certain types of white cedar wood, such as Atlantic white cedar, Eastern white cedar and Northern white cedar, are resistant to decay, will not splinter and provide good stability.
