Cedar Shingles Are Ideal for Southern Ontario’s Climate
Your budget, your desired level of maintenance, your climate, and your local surroundings are all factors that typically affect your decision when it comes to what type of new roofing to invest in for your home. Cedar roofing makes a popular choice among discerning Vaughan and Greater Toronto Area homeowners because it’s long-lasting and resistant to all of the heavy rains, hailstorms, and snowstorms we experience in our region. However, with this investment comes much responsibility. Cedar shingles require regular maintenance to protect them from mold and mildew growth because they’re wood. You can rely on DVR Roofing for all your Toronto cedar roofing installation, maintenance, and repair needs. We encourage you to contact us via phone or our online form to request a free estimate!
The Advantages to Cedar Roofing You Should Consider
With over 30 years of combined experience in the roofing industry, DVR Roofing specializes in installing many types of roofing. However, one of the types we often recommend to Toronto-area homeowners is cedar roofing. While cedar roof shingles may require a bit more of an initial investment when compared with other types of roofing, many homeowners consider it well worth the investment. Advantages of cedar roofing include all of the following for your careful consideration:
- Energy-Efficiency– Cedar roofing offers superior natural insulation, up to two times more than asphalt shingles, which should result in lower energy bills.
- Durability – When properly maintained, cedar shingles have been known to last 30 years or more and at least 10 years longer than asphalt shingles and many other roofing materials.
- Natural Beauty – Cedar roofing ages gracefully when compared with other types of roofing, providing a beautiful, rustic look to your home for many years to come.
- Strength – Cedar is one of the toughest woods money can buy, offering the structural strength your roof depends on to protect your home and your family.
Cedar Roofing Maintenance Tips to Avoid Roof Leak Repairs
As a homeowner concerned about protecting the integrity of your cedar roof, regular maintenance is critical. You’ll want to pay close attention to your gutters and keep them free of debris. Clogged gutters and downspouts aren’t doing their job of guiding water safely away from your roof and home. This becomes especially problematic for a wood roof that’s more susceptible to water damage and algae or mold growth. We recommend cleaning your roof at least once a year to remove all debris and mold. However, it’s best to leave roof cleaning and inspections up to qualified, professional Toronto roofers such as DVR Roofing for your safety.
While you may be able to see missing or damaged roofing shingles from the ground, we’re likely able to find less apparent damages during a roof inspection. Often, it can also be challenging to recognize the signs of mold growth on a cedar roof because your cedar shingles will naturally change their appearance after years of exposure to Southern Ontario’s sunlight and precipitation. Completing roof repairs as soon as possible helps minimize repair costs and prolongs your cedar roof’s lifespan. Your Toronto roofing is always in good hands when you hire DVR Roofing’s conscientious crew!
