The Benefits of Specifying
Western Red Cedar Shakes and Shingles

When compared with other roofing products, there is no doubt none can match the natural beauty and durability of Western Red Cedar shakes and shingles.  The look of natural cedar shakes have been copied by imitators more than any other roofing product ever made – as they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.  And with the natural qualities infused in it by Mother Nature, cedar will protect your home for years. 

The look and protection of cedar has always made it the first choice for high-end homes, and Anglo’s transferable warranty of our cedar roofs for up to 50 years protects this investment, and allows you to pass on this peace of mind when it is time to sell.

Cedar is a natural insulator against the environment; competitors can’t come close to the thermal efficiency of wood.  In fact, cedar has twice the thermal resistivity (R-value) of asphalt, 5 times that of slate, 8 times that of concrete, and hundreds of times that of steel and aluminum.

In terms of structural strength, cedar is the clear leader.  Cedar weighs up to 75% less than its competitors.  Wood roofing actually adds to the structural strength of your roof, rather than simply adding weight, making it highly desirable in earth-quake prone areas.  In addition, the natural resiliency of wood fibres allow them to provide superior hail and hurricane resistance (tested up to 130 mph), and eliminate the freeze-thaw shock which can damage imitation products.

Cedar roofing is a responsible choice, produced from a renewable resource, which is more than our competitors can claim, which pump or mine their raw materials from deep in the ground, adding to greenhouse gas emissions.  Wood regenerates naturally.  Canada retains over 91% of its original forested area, far more than any other country in the world.  Only 25% of this is managed forest which is available to log, and no more than .5% of this can be harvested annually, and must be replanted, by law.  This is why Canada’s rate of deforestation is zero, compared to a global average of 2%, per the UN State of the World’s Forests report.
