Cedar Shakes from Switzer Construction Ltd in Red Deer

At Switzer Construction, some of our favourite roofing materials to install in the Red Deer area are cedar shakes. These shakes come in a variety of styles that are suitable for most homes with a decent roof overhang. Cedar shakes are a perfect fit for century homes or even to give a modern home that timeless appearance.

Over time, the stain on cedar shakes will fade, revealing a more wintery shade that you may have seen on many European-style homes. Some find this natural look more appealing, but if you want to maintain the stained look, a new stain can be applied every 5 years as needed.

Benefits of Cedar Shakes

The benefits of cedar shakes go beyond appearance, they also have some unique attributes, such as:

  • Durability
  • Longevity
  • Superior Insulation
  • Natural Insect Resistance
  • Hail & Wind Resistance

Value of Cedar Shakes

Although installing cedar shakes will most likely mean a high cost in materials, they are considered a long-term investment which can help raise your home’s resale value.

Cedar Shake Repairs

Our team in Red Deer also has a background in repairing cedar shakes. Most cedar shake repairs occur as a result of an inexperienced installer. Nevertheless, once repaired, your cedar shakes will last upwards of 40 years before requiring a replacement.
