Imagine yourself back in time over a century ago, sitting in the comfort of your own home and enjoying a good book by a slow blazing fire. You smell the sweet aroma of fresh potatoes cooking in a pot over your wood oven. You lean back with ease and breath a deep sigh. You are home. After you’ve eaten, the fire slowly dies out and you decide to take a walk up the hill overlooking your town. You see familiar faces along the way of friends and families who are taking evening strolls after a long day of work. Each face with its own story to tell and its own home to go back to. You finally make it up the hill and stare out into the open air over where you’ve lived all your life. Roof over roof, descending down a rolling hill with candlelit windows and the sun setting beautifully below the skyline. There is no place like home.We at Emerald Cedar believe strongly in the assurance and security of families coming home every day and feeling the comfort of a roof over their heads that has withstood the test of time.
Some of the Key Benefits of a Cedar Roof:
Exceptional thermal insulation properties prevent escape of warm air in the winter and escape of cold air in the summer. With a Cedar Roof, you can remain comfortable and secure with the temperature of your home in any season, without any worry of poorly distributed airflow.
Cedar Roofs have a natural durability. The resiliency of Cedar wood fibers easily handle extreme weather conditions including hail, snow storms, and heavy winds of up to 130 miles per hour. Cedar Shingles, also referred to as Cedar Shakes, have a very low density and maintain their long life in addition to their light weight. While other roofs may wear and tear over the years after being abused by the elements, Cedar Roofs preserve their structure and remain well intact. Generally, Cedar Roofs can last for up to 50 years.
Cedar is highly resistant to rain and contains natural oils that prohibit rot and mold growth. Cedar Roofs also allow for much more airflow around the shingles which enhance prevention of roof decay and insect infestations. With a Cedar Roof over your head, you can rest easy knowing both inside and outside your home is well protected.
Cedar Shingles have over 100 years of proven reliability and unbeatable performance. There are many other types of shingles that try to imitate and replicate both the aesthetically pleasing aspect of Cedar and its incredible, long lasting example. But NONE come close to the exemplary durability and rich history behind an elegant Cedar Roof. You may be asking yourself, so why choose Emerald Cedar for my new roof?

I would definitely recommend Emerald Cedar to anybody considering a cedar roof for their home or recreational property. ”
“Orest (the owner of Emerald Cedar) did a terrific job re-roofing our cedar roof in the fall of 2013. I obtained a number of quotes before deciding on Orest. He was the only roofing company where the person who quoted the job also performed it. Orest and his team performed the job on time and as quoted. Orest is very experienced and is well regarded within the cedar roof trade and with residential clients. He is always professional and pleasant. I highly recommend Orest and Emerald Cedar. ”
“Orest and his very pleasant and professional crew did an excellent job replacing our cedar shingle roof. The care taken is seldom seen in workmen today. He even returned the first lot of shingles because he felt they were too thin. We highly recommend him and as a bonus his price was highly competitive. ”
“Orest and his team from Emerald Cedar Contracting exceeded my expectations in all facets of a recent cedar shingle replacement for myself and 3 of my adjoined neighbours. From the moment the quote was made until payment for the work, timelines were adhered to strictly and communication was frequent and reliable. The quality of the workmanship is excellent and the price quoted reflects very good value for the job completed. ”
“We are extremely pleased with the work Orest and his crew did on our roof. They were professional, punctual, polite and every day when they finished they left the site tidy and clean. They were a pleasure to have working at our home and the roof looks amazing. I would highly recommend Emerald Contracting, and Orest in particular!”
