What You Need to Know about Hardwood Shingles from NSW Slate Roofing in Sydney
Hardwood shingles come in a variety of colours, shapes, and sizes. Homeowners across the Sydney area have installed hardwood shingles for their aesthetically pleasing look and durability. We offer a variety of roofing materials to choose from, including several different types of hardy and attractive hardwood shingles. Check out the different shingle materials NSW Slate Roofing can install for you and see which one is the best investment for your home.
Why should you choose a hardwood roof?
Hardwood is naturally resistant to all manner of pests and adverse weather conditions. A hardwood roof will resist:
- UV ray damage
Also, cedar shakes and shingles can be factory-treated for added fire retardant qualities and mold resistance, making them an incredibly safe and durable investment. If you suffer from mold allergies, a hardwood roof may be the answer to your prayers.
Hardwood shingles can be installed on a roof or also as siding. Both will offer your home superior protection from the elements. In addition, a well-maintained and adequately treated cedar roof or cedar siding can last for up to 50 years.
Cedar shingles have a uniform, sleek appearance. The wood is cut in a way that the material has a cross-grain appearance. If you want that signature look that only a hardwood shingle can give, but aren’t entirely sold on a rustic appearance, a cedar shingle roof may be the right choice for you.
Cedar shakes are usually split with the grain. Traditionally, cedar shakes were hand split and hand sawn, but most manufacturers use power tools now. But, a cedar shake cut with power tools still maintains that signature, rustic look. If you want your home to have that rough-hewn, story-book appeal, cedar shakes can give you the look you desire.
Why should you partner with NSW Slate Roofing?
At NSW Slate Roofing, we take our customer’s satisfaction seriously. Before we agree to an install, we’ll give you a detailed quote for your roofing project. You’ll know exactly what to expect from us, how much time your install will take, and how much it will cost. Our prices are some of the most competitive in Sydney. While most of our competitors use shake and shingle interchangeably, we believe it’s crucial that you know the difference between cedar shake and shingle so you can get the look you want for your roof.
We also use some of the finest material in the roofing business. All of the cedar shakes and shingles are blue label, the highest grade you can find for hardwood shingles. In addition, we also give our customers a variety of choices for their roofing materials. You can choose from light, paler cedar tones, to deep red shingles. Over time, your hardwood roof will take on a unique, silver-gray colour.
Why should you invest in a high-quality hardwood or slate roof from us?
Unlike asphalt shingle roofs, slate and timber shingles are long-lasting and environmentally friendly. A slate or hardwood roof will resist extreme temperature swings, saving you on energy costs and consumption. Also, a well-maintained hardwood or slate roof will last anywhere from 50 to 100 years, potentially even outliving you. Wouldn’t it be nice only to have to pay for a roof installation once? With a high-quality hardwood or slate roof from NSW Slate Roofing, it’s possible to only make this vital investment once during your life.
