Cedar Shake will give your home that contemporary style you’re looking for. This wonder of nature comes from the majestic old red cedar, common in the Pacific Northwest. Its lifespan can go from 18 to 25 years and it comes in a wide variety of grades determined by the amount of vertical grade that each bundle contains. The thickness of your Cedar Shake tiles can also be customized into a medium or a heavy butt, while maintaining its resistance thanks to the asphalt saturated underlayment that is woven about them. If you’re looking to add beauty to your Upstate New York home then look to install a Cedar Shake roof.
