Why Use Cedar Shingles for Your Roof

The world’s most enduring roofing material was made by nature: cedar. Cedar is prized for its natural beauty and durability in tough climate conditions.

Lifetime Workmanship Warranty

Roof Life of Oregon warrants to the homeowner that the roof installation will be free of defects in workmanship.

Cedar Shake Installation & Maintenance

Installing cedar shakes is a little more complicated than roofing with architectural composition shingles. Roof Life has 25 years experience installing what we believe to be the best quality roofing material for your home. Our workmanship will exceed your expectations and we’ve got the testimonials to prove it.

The Roof Life Difference

The real secret to cedar roofing is to find and use the highest grade shakes or shingles available. That’s not as simple and easy as it sounds because they are heavily guarded. In the roofing world they are like gold!

We bring them in from Canada on super big trucks and then we hand deliver them to your roof using state of the art technology.

Another secret to cedar roofing is to maintain a staff that are experts in cedar shake installation.

The third secret to installing the best cedar roof in town is to match the components. For example, our underlayment is called Feltex. It is fifty times stronger than the industry’s thirty pound shake felt.

Why Feltex?

Feltex will last as long as a good shake will, felt paper will not.

The bottom starter course on a roof stays wet longer than any part of the roof, so we use the best wood and have it pressure treated.
