Cedar Roofing

Cedar Roofing –  Truly the “Roots” of RoofRite

Back in the day, RoofRite started as a cedar roofing company.  The first project we ever took was a cedar to cedar re-roof in Ladner, BC.  That was all the way back in 1993 before RoofRite was even officially registered.  Since then, we have strived to install only the highest quality of cedar available.  Pictured above is a cedar re-roof we completed that covered almost 4000 square feet.  Using old growth taper sawn 7/8” thick cedar shingles, we came out with truly amazing looking finished product.

Old Growth Cedar

When cedar reaches a mature age it releases a chemical into the wood that helps to preserve the wood.  New growth cedar shingles are made out of 7 year old cedar trees.  Old growth should last 30 years when maintained and treated.  New growth cedar wears out in about 12 to 15 years in our experience.

Tar Paper

Between the shingles is a layer of tar paper or felt paper that is woven over the tips of every course (row).

Sun Tunnel Installation

Not enough space for a skylight?  Looking for an easy solution to a dimly lit room?  The answer is simply, a Velux Sun Tunnel.  We can install these virtually anywhere in you house.  The first step is to pin point where you would like it.  Next we cut a whole in your ceiling and in the roof.  Each kit comes with the parts necessary to finish the ceiling, the light tube that reflects the natural light tube, and the flange and “bubble” to be installed on the roof.

At this point the ceiling is finished and the tube has been attached to the flange.
