At Brookridge Timber, we celebrate the timeless allure of cedar shingles, an age-old choice for external timber cladding that continues to captivate architects, builders, and homeowners. Renowned for their beauty, durability, and eco-friendly nature, cedar shingles are more than just roofing and wall tiles; they are a reflection of sustainable elegance. In this article, we delve into the aesthetic and practical benefits of cedar roof shingles, showcasing why they remain a preferred cladding option for those seeking both form and function.
Beauty in Every Detail
Cedar shingles, specifically Thuja Plicata, stand as a testament to nature’s artistry. Their intrinsic beauty is a product of meticulous craftsmanship and Mother Earth’s design. The cedar shingles we supply at Brookridge Timber, a leading South West timber cladding and Cedar shingles supplier, embody excellence. Comprising 100% clear heartwood and 100% vertical grain, they are kiln-dried to perfection.
Sustainable & Naturally Resistant
The beauty of cedar shingles extends beyond aesthetics; it’s deeply rooted in sustainability. Sourced from well-managed forests in Western Canada, these shingles epitomise environmental responsibility. They’re a testament to eco-conscious choices, offering an opportunity to make a sustainable statement. Moreover, cedar shingles exhibit a natural resistance to both rot and insects, reducing the need for chemical preservatives. However, for those who seek added protection, Brookridge Timber provides a 30-year warranty with preservative-treated Cedar shingles, combining longevity with peace of mind.
Cedar shingles are the epitome of low-maintenance elegance. While they are virtually maintenance-free, a simple step like clearing debris from your roof can extend their lifespan. Installing a 100mm zinc strip exposed at the ridge further safeguards against moss growth, ensuring the enduring beauty of your cedar shingles.
Strong, Stable & Kiln-Dried
Our Cedar shingles come with clear heartwood and vertical grain, a testament to their strength and dimensional stability. The clear heartwood ensures consistent color and quality throughout each shingle, creating an unrivaled visual harmony. The vertical grain, in turn, fortifies their structural integrity. Additionally, our kiln-drying process expertly removes moisture from the shingles, mitigating shrinkage and warping, and ensuring they retain their form and function.
Durability, Lightness & Aesthetic Appeal
Cedar shingles effortlessly combine durability, lightweight construction, and aesthetic appeal. These versatile shingles are equally at home on roofs and walls, imparting a natural and distinctive character to any structure. With a lengthy lifespan, they reduce the frequency of replacements and minimise maintenance needs, underscoring their eco-friendly nature.
