Wood roofs have a number of advantages that will add up over time. Installing a wood roof gives you durability and flexibility. It’s easy to choose a wood roof that matches the design and atmosphere of your home. Wood roofs also offer superior insulating properties and a lasting finish that will resist insects, moss, and other damage. If you want an eco-friendly roofing option, wood roofs are a great option that we highly recommend for homeowners in Northern Virginia.
We are always happy to answer your questions about the advantages wood roofs offer. We encourage you to contact us at (703) 830-0863 with your questions and to request a free quote.
Wood Roofing Products & Materials
Most wood roofs are made of western red cedar. This beautiful wood will provide long-lasting protection against the elements, insect infestation, sunlight, and more. Other common wood roofing options we can install include California redwood, Atlantic white cedar, and cypress.
Wood shingles and wood shakes are the most common wood roofing materials you will see in Virginia. Wood shakes are thicker and have uneven surfaces, whereas wood shingles are smooth and flat. Both roofing options will give your home an elegant and distinctive appearance in the neighborhood. Properly installed, both types of roofs can last 30-50 years.

Wood Roofing Repairs
While wood roofs are strong and durable, Mother Nature can be pretty harsh. Wind, rain, hail, ice, and heavy snow can cause shingles and shakes to break off, crack, and melt away. Common problems our team can help address include:
- Moss/mold growth
- Missing shingles (aka “Gone with the Wind”)
Prompt repair of wood roofing damage is essential; if the damage isn’t addressed, it can lead to the need for a whole roof replacement. Ignoring small problems is what leads to big problems later on. As with any roofing system, once the roofing barrier is breached, it can allow moisture, insects, and pests to infiltrate your attic space. Left unchecked, this can significantly increase the extent of the damage and the cost of repairs.
