Awesome wood shingles online shopping from Cedur? Due to the varying size of each individual shake, hand-split cedar shake shingles are primarily used as a roofing material in homes across the country. While it was once the standard for roofing and used on homes across the country, now it is more common to see them in areas closer to the woods and wood mills. This is because the weight of cedar shakes makes them difficult and expensive to transport to other areas of the country. The biggest advantage to hand-split shingles is the beautiful, rustic appearance. It is something very different from other, more common styles of roofing shingles, which makes for a unique design choice. They are also a fairly durable material that is naturally resistant to most things (to some extent), such as moisture, wind, and insects. They are also decent insulators, which means homes with this style of roof will allow the home to maintain a steady temperature regardless of the season.
There are four impact resistance ratings from 1 to 4, with 4 being the most impact resistant. In the Class 4 impact test, a 2 inch steel ball is dropped from a height of 20 feet on multiple surface points of a CeDUR Shake. In order to achieve a Class 4 impact rating the material must withstand the impact test and not suffer damage. CeDUR passed the test with a Class 4 Impact Rating. Our testing was completed through QAI Laboratories (Quality Assurance Institute) and our test results can be accessed using the link below or by typing ESR3838 into Google Search Engine.
Choosing the Best Class 4 Shingles: There are many different Class 4 impact resistant shingles available on the market. But, knowing which are the best Class 4 shingles to go with can be confusing and overwhelming. Although many products list a Class 4 impact rating, ideally you will want to go with a company whose product is listed as being UL 2218 Class 4 shingles. This will ensure that they have gone through the rigorous testing of the independent UL and that the classification is valid. The cost of Class 4 impact resistant shingles can vary from company to company, but if you take the time to search, you will find that many companies offer UL Class 4 impact resistant roof options that are reasonably priced. But, it is also important to note that the price you pay for a Class 4 roof will mean your home or building is well protected from extreme weather. Read more information at where to buy roof tiles.
While concrete roofing tiles are a fairly durable roofing option, the underlayment is not. On average, your concrete roofing tiles will last up to 50 years, while the underlayment will only last about 20 years. This means you will have to go through replacing this layer every-so-often, which adds to the maintenance and cost of concrete tile roofing. The process of replacing the underlayment of your roof can also be rather tedious and time-consuming and keep you from working on other projects in and around your home.
