We are huge fans of the natural beauty that can be seen on wood roofs. Out of all of the roofing options out there, we believe that wood roofs are ideal for customers who are looking for the most aesthetically pleasing option.

Aside from their gorgeous appearance, wood roofs are long-lasting and deliver a life-span of at least ten years. They are also resistant to a number of harsh weather conditions including hail, snow, heavy rains, and even hurricanes.

Just like metal roofs, wood roofs are energy efficient. Since they provide a natural insulation that is greater than that of other shingles, you can save money on heating and cooling your home and greatly reduce your energy bill.
Compared to other types of roofing, wood roofs are costly and more expensive to install. Also, wood shingles require regular maintenance to prevent the growth of mildew, moss, and mold. However, if you would like to increase the lifespan and quality of your home, we feel that investing in a wood roof is well worth it.
