Forget Cedar Wood Shingles
You might like the thought of how cedar wood shingles will look on your home’s roof, and you might even be satisfied with the result for a few years. However, it will be far sooner than you’d hoped that you find that your relatively new wood shingles look old and worn beyond their years. Luckily, Turada Hardwood Shingles offers an alternative to the traditional cedar shake: Wallaba.
Shakes Unlike Any Others
There’s no doubt that wooden shakes provide a traditional and timeless look for a roof. Unfortunately, the most common shakes are made from cedar, which simply doesn’t maintain its appearance or performance nearly as long as your roof needs it to. Cedar shakes require expensive treatment and maintenance in order to lengthen their lifespan, and even then they don’t compare to untreated Wallaba.
Untreated Wallaba lasts twice as long as treated cedar, or a whopping 40+ years compared to cedar’s 10 to 20 years. Wallaba boasts greater resistance to fire, decay, and even hurricanes, threats that cedar simply can’t stand up to. In addition, Wallaba weathers from a gorgeous shade of red to a striking silver tone, while cedar fades from a weak shade of red to a dull shade of gray.
