Enjoy an attractive and durable roof while also doing your bit for the environment with the help of Abbey Roofing & Preservation Ltd. Based in Dorset, we supply and install cedar shingles and shakes, which are used to create beautiful roofs. The cedar shingles maximise the yield from felled trees, using parts of the log that would otherwise be scrapped. This renewable resource is the ideal roofing material for an eco-friendly house build.
Cedar shingles provide a very natural and aesthetically pleasing look to any building, and are surprisingly durable, creating a long-lasting roof covering. Cedar is much more resistant to rot than other woods, while the shingles also have higher natural insulation properties than any roofing material currently available. A roof built from cedar shingles will be particularly resistant to wind and storms, and as such they are particularly suitable for coastal locations.
As a specialist roofing contractor, we have installed cedar shingles on many new build properties as well as on restoration jobs. To meet our high standards, we only install cedar shingles that have been pre-treated, protecting them from the elements and resulting in even less chance of mould or decay. Cedar shingles require careful installation with airflow around them, so they can breathe and dry after absorbing moisture. As experts in our field, our installation work is performed carefully to avoid cupping and warping.
