Expert Cedar Roofing Services in Maryland

In the picturesque landscapes of Maryland, where the architectural styles range from historic to contemporary, cedar shake and cedar shingle roofing offers a timeless aesthetic coupled with enduring quality. Certified Roofing specializes in cedar roofing solutions, providing both cedar shake and shingle options to homeowners and businesses seeking a blend of natural beauty, durability, and performance.


The Allure of Cedar Roofing

Cedar roofing, available in shakes and shingles, is renowned for its natural beauty, which can elevate the appearance of any property. But the advantages of cedar extend far beyond its visual appeal.


  • Aesthetic Appeal: Cedar offers a distinct, organic look that ages gracefully, blending beautifully with Maryland’s natural surroundings. Whether you choose shakes for their rustic, textured appearance or shingles for a more uniform and refined look, this roofing material adds character and charm to your property.
  • Durability: Cedar is naturally resistant to insects, rot, and decay, thanks to its inherent oils. When properly maintained, this type of roof can be one of the most durable and long-lasting roofing options, enduring the variable Maryland climate for decades.
  • Insulation Properties: It has excellent insulation properties, helping to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, which can lead to energy savings and enhanced indoor comfort.
  • Eco-Friendly: Since it is made from wood, it is a renewable resource, and its production has a lower environmental impact compared to some other roofing materials. Additionally, at the end of its life, cedar roofing can be recycled or composted, reducing landfill waste.


  • Maintenance Requirements: To preserve its longevity and appearance, cedar roofing requires regular maintenance, including cleaning, treating, and occasional repairs. Without proper upkeep, it can be susceptible to moss, mold, and mildew.
  • Cost: The initial investment for cedar roofing is higher than some other materials, such as asphalt shingles. However, this cost is often offset by cedar’s longevity and the added value to your property.
  • Fire Resistance: Untreated cedar is not as fire-resistant as materials like metal or slate. However, fire-retardant treatments are available to enhance the fire resistance of cedar roofing.
  • Weathering: Over time, the wood weathers to a silver-gray color. While many find this patina appealing, others may prefer the original color, which can be maintained with regular treatments.


Cedar vs. Other Roofing Materials

When comparing cedar to other popular roofing materials in Maryland, it’s important to weigh the characteristics of each option:

  • Metal Roofing: Metal is low maintenance and offers exceptional durability and fire resistance. However, it doesn’t provide the same natural insulation or classic aesthetic as cedar.
  • Slate Roofing:  A slate roof offers unmatched longevity and a distinct, elegant appearance but at a higher cost. Slate is also much heavier than cedar, which may require additional structural support.
  • Asphalt Shingles: Asphalt shingle roofs are the most economical choice and offer a variety of color and style options. However, they don’t match cedar’s insulation properties or natural aesthetic and typically have a shorter lifespan.
