A Reliable Cedar Roofing Company in Orlando

Cedar Roofing Company Orlando

Cedar roofs give your home a rustic and natural look that makes it turn heads and stand out. After asphalt shingle roofing, cedar roofs are the most popular choice for residential roofs. They offer many other advantages besides a boost in curb appeal, though. Cedar roofs provide a strong layer of insulation and protection for your home. While you might think wood roofing is susceptible to moisture, cedar is naturally moisture-resistant, making it a great roofing option even in our humid climate.

Red Rhino Roofing is a top-rated roofing company in Orlando that offers cedar roofing options to our customers. We will guide you through the process and help you choose the color and style that complements your current decor. You are going to love your new, natural cedar roof!

Types of Cedar Roofs Roofs We Install

There are two types of cedar roofing to consider: cedar shake roofing and cedar shingle roofing. The strength of both types depends on the thickness and which part of the tree the material was cut from. When your shingles are cut from a stronger and thicker part of the tree, they are going to be more durable (which also means more expensive). Cedar shake and cedar shingle sound a lot alike, so let’s talk about the differences between them.

Cedar Shake Roofing

Cedar shakes will give you a more rustic look than shingles because they are cut into unique, individual pieces. It will age beautifully in just about any climate—from the day it’s installed to 30 years from now, it will only get more beautiful. Cedar shake roofing requires a bit more maintenance than asphalt shingle roofs, but the charm it adds to your building is worth the investment.

Cedar Shingle Roofing

Cedar cut shingles are factory-made, ensuring that each panel is the same size and width. This cutting method makes them more uniform in appearance, but it leaves cross-grain saw marks. They’re a more affordable alternative to shakes and provide a consistent look to your roof. Just like cedar shakes, cedar shingles are lightweight and energy-efficient

Pros and Cons of Cedar Roofing

When making your selection about the type of cedar roofing to fit your needs, there will be pros and cons. We have broken down the list for you:

Pros of Cedar Roofing

  • Improves home value: Any new roof can improve your home value, but cedar roofs in particular often sell more easily than homes that have other roofing types.
  • Energy-efficient: Cedar is naturally insulating and will make it easier for your home to maintain its internal temperatures.
  • Naturally resistant: Cedarwood is naturally resistant to rot and moisture, making it an ideal roofing material for our climate here in Central Florida.

Cons of Cedar Roofing

  • Longevity: While cedar may look prettier as it ages, it does not maintain its structural integrity as long as metal, slate, or tile.
  • Expensive: Cedar roofing is not the most expensive roofing option, but it’s certainly not the cheapest. Especially if you opt for cedar shake, you will be paying a higher price. 
  • Maintenance: Cedar roofs probably have the most maintenance required from all roofing materials. There are more cleaning and protective treatments involved in maintaining your cedar roof.

Cedar Roof FAQs


What is it made from?

Cedar roofing materials are made from – you guessed it, cedarwood! Cedar itself is a very durable tree and makes a great roofing material.

Does it cost more than regular asphalt shingles?

Yes. There are pros and cons to both! Our team would love to discuss what options will work best with your needs and budget.

How many years will a cedar roof last?

With proper maintenance, your cedar roof will last up to 25 years.

Are cedar roofs hard to install?

No specialized equipment is needed for a cedar roof, making it reasonably easy for a crew to install. However, because cedar shakes are not all uniform, they require more precision and attention to detail to install. It’s important to find a roofer who has the knowledge and skill to do it the right way the first time!

    This company is one of the best companies and actually it is the best for me. Their prices are affordable and take care of their customers. They are always on time and finish the work fast and professionally. I hired them to install a new … More roof to my house and everything was done in two days. Mr. Mark and Ive are very kind and helpful. They answer my calls every time I call or send a message. They would help you with doing wind mitigation papers professionally. I totally recommend them for anyone looking to install or repair his/her roof in affordable and professional way.

    Mark's company Red Rhino Roofing put a metal roof on our home and we couldn't be more pleased. Mark had a couple of different crews out: one to tear off the old shingles, prep the decking, and install underlayment; and another … More to install the metal. This is not uncommon in the roofing industry as different team members have different skill sets. Mark's foreman was on site everyday to oversee everything. With any issues that came up, Mark and Franco, his foreman, were very responsive and made sure everything was done according to code. You never really know the quality of work a company will perform until they start, but we were pleasantly surprised. They cleaned up after themselves thoroughly from the gutters out to the street leaving hardly any debris. It is hard to find anyone in the home service business that keeps their word. Mark kept his and we appreciated that. Now, our home is cooler, the electric bill is lower, and our insurance rates are reduced. Selecting a metal roof through Red Rhino was one of the best decisions we have made for our home.

    Mark's crew did several different jobs at my home, with the main service being a replacement of my wooden soffit and fascia with vinyl. Looks fantastic! I've had several compliments from my neighbors on the new appearance. I would … More highly recommend them if you need to have this work done on your home.
