There is no doubt cedar wood roofs are long-lasting, making them an ideal roofing material. They are also energy efficient, providing a natural insulation up to two times that of asphalt shingles. With this type of roofing, you will conserve home heating and cooling costs, and significantly save on energy bills. Cedar roofs are also environmentally friendly because they’re made from a natural, renewable resource and are biodegradable.
