Decorative Cedar Shingles
Many homes are missing that one thing that will set them apart from the other properties on the block or in the neighborhood. For many luxury and historic homes, that one thing is decorative cedar shingles.
We’ve become too used to traditional roofing materials, to the point where all roofs tend to blend in with one another. But when installed properly on the right home, decorative roof shingles can make a home’s attractiveness come alive. They mesh with the existing architecture and look and feel, enhancing every aspect of a home’s appearance.
At Custom Shingles, decorative wood siding shingles are among our specialties. For 40 years, we’ve been helping homes reach their full potential through the installation of high-quality decorative wood shingles.
What Makes Decorative Wood Shingles Different?
What sets decorative cedar shingles and other decorative wood siding shingles apart from other roofing materials? First and foremost, they provide a head-turning attractiveness that you simply don’t get with more commonly used roofing materials. Crafting decorative wood shingles requires artistic ability and careful attention to detail — and that ability and attention to detail shines through in the finished product.
Also, decorative wood shingles are also more durable than more common roofing materials. While you may pay more upfront for materials and installation than you would with a traditional roofing material, both the shingles and the installation will last for decades to come, giving you added value that underscores the premium appearance of your roof and its dramatic impact on your home.
What Types of Homes Benefit From Decorative Roof Shingles?
Decorative cedar shingles aren’t a perfect fit for every property. But there’s a wide range of housing styles that do make a good fit.
First of all, it’s important to have an era-appropriate home: Either one that was built during a certain time period or that looks like it was built decades ago. Most often, decorative shingles are installed on older coastal-style homes as well as Nantucket-style cottages. New England shingle homes are also ideal for harnessing the dramatic power of a roof made of decorative wood shingles.
