At Action 1 Roofing, we’re glad to help customers who are looking for more information about wood roofing. While this may not be as commonly seen as asphalt, it’s still a popular choice today for its durability and longevity. When it comes to choosing a type of wood roof, your options are either wood shake or wood shingles. The type you have installed will depend on your budget, the size of your property, the look you want, and the performance you desire.
What are Wood Shingles?
Color Options and Design for Wood Shingle Roofs
Since wood shingles are natural and made of the wood you choose, the color is going to largely depend on the type of wood itself. In some cases, this may mean the wood has a red tone, while for others, it may be more yellow or brown. Fortunately, all colors of wood shingles look beautiful on the roof and blend together beautifully when placed next to each other.
Wood shingles can be cut and installed in many different ways, making it easy to achieve a unique design. Some homeowners will have shingles installed straight and in a uniform design, while others will have theirs cut or installed differently for something unique. You can speak with your roofer about your goals so they can determine what will work best for your home.
Cost of Wood Shingle Roofs
The cost for cedar shingle roofs to be installed can vary based on the size of your home, the design you want, availability of product, repairs, and more. However, the average price for installation ranges from $450 to $900 per square. Although this is a big investment, most homeowners find that it’s worth it for the longevity and beauty that wood shingles have to offer.
