Cedar roofing Western red cedar

We are proud suppliers of environmentally sensitively sourced Western Red Cedar shakes and shingles. It is a range of products that have one of the lowest impacts to environmental sustainability and climate change. Furthermore, they provide a traditional style, which is naturally durable.

We choose the suppliers of our cedar roofing from Western red cedar suppliers who often sourced from salvaged wood fibre and other wood left on the forest floor that is not suitable for other manufacturing such as building planks or furniture. What’s more, there are many beneficial qualities of natural  cedar roofing. Western Red Cedar is the best material for shakes and shingles due to the natural rot resistant and thermal qualities of the material.

Thermal Qualities of Cedar Roofing – Western Red Cedar

Western red cedar makes a great choice for roofing due to its remarkable thermal resistance. It insulates a home from the extreme elements so that it preserves heat in the winter by preventing cold penetrating as well as keeping the heat away during summer. This has obvious benefits to energy use, with less greenhouse gases being released in the environment as less heating and air conditioning being used.

We have been certified by the Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau (CSSB) and if you are a builder who wants to maintain their Green credentials then partnering with us is a good choice.

Seamless Aluminum Gutters (fascia style and colonial style)

Seamless Aluminum Gutters are one of Eco Exterior’s signature lines. They not only provide superior function in the roof drainage system, they complement your house design and facade. The use of aluminum provides stable and long wearing durability. We carry two lines of seamless aluminum gutters, fascia style and colonial style.

We cut continuous lengths of seamless aluminum gutters on site where we install.

Advantages of Seamless Aluminum Gutters

Although seamless aluminum gutters may cost more to install as we cut onsite, they present a great return on investment as they need much less maintenance. Because they are seamless, there are less bumps inside the gutter to allow for clogging up of debris. The last thing you want is gutters that don’t allow the water to drain quickly from your roof particularly in a heavy storm. And who wants to spend time cleaning out gutters?

Fascia Style Seamless Aluminum Gutters

As its names suggest, we supply and fit fascia style gutters that sit on the fascia board of a home. It performs the dual function of gutter and fascia. We can supply them in a great range of designer colours.

Colonial Style seamless aluminum gutters

The colonial style seamless aluminum gutter is a great choice if you have an older style house as it incorporates those design elements, and it generally has a rounder profile.
