CeDUR Synthetic Roofing Product

The Look of Authentic Wood – But Low Maintenance and Fire Resistant

 

Cedar wood roof shingles are a distinctly Northwest style that look beautiful on many homes in Oregon. They create a distinctive natural look and unique style. The downside is that wood roof shingles require maintenance and are not fire resistant.

Northwest Quality Roofing has a solution! CeDUR synthetic roof shakes are made from a state-of-the-art Polyurethane manufacturing process which allows them to mold each shingle from natural wood giving them an incredible natural wood look. Products come in a variety of colors to ensure complimentary look to your existing style and color design.

CeDUR shakes offer the same aesthetic appeal of hand split cedar shake. The shakes are molded from real cedar, meaning our grain patterns, shadow lines, and texture are true to life. Natural movement is designed into the CeDUR product to give the roof the natural cedar shake appearance. CeDUR shakes may be installed in a straight course or staggered course. The shake shingles are available in three widths which adds authentic wood beauty and amazing curb appeal to your home.

 

Some of the features and advantages of CeDUR Roofing Shingles include:

  • Beautiful deep grain wood patterns
  • Rich natural wood appearance with thick shadow lines and grooves
  • No mold or mildew growth
  • No plastic sheen or un-natural appearance
  • No fire risk, splitting, rotting or decay
  • No water absorption

Solid Product with Color Through Pigmentation

CeDUR is not a hollow or cavity back roofing product, meaning each individual roof shake is solid.  CeDUR Color Through Pigmentation means you can cut right through the product with a utility knife. This helps ensure superior installation at the roof’s hips, valleys, ridges, and eaves.  Solid product composition also means better insulation for your home. CeDUR is an energy efficient roofing material with an R-Value in excess of 2.0.  Your home will warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

What to look for in a Roofing Contractor

You’re going to live and work under a roof for years to come, so choosing a quality roofing contractor is very important. Northwest Quality Roofing has prepared this short article to help you understand what to look for in a roofing contractor, so you’re covered for the duration.

Use this checklist to determine the reliability of a roofing contractor:

  • Are they licensed and can they be bonded?
  • Do they have liability insurance and carry workers compensation insurance?
  • How are potential worker injuries handled? Make sure you won’t be liable for any accidents.
  • If their equipment damages your property, who is responsible?
  • Will their work meet Code, Covenant, or Restriction requirements of your area, if applicable?
  • Will the contractor give you a signed permit and walk-through checklist from the final building inspection, if required?
  • What is the exact business location? Get the address, even if they work out of their home.
  • Has the company changed its business name? If yes, why?
  • Does the owner perform the work, or does he have employees? Request the name of the project supervisor.
  • Will there be subcontractors? Make sure to get their names, license number and insurance certificates.
  • Verify whether there will be workers on the job every day until completed.
  • Do they have a procedure in case of bad weather during the project?
  • Get at least 10 references (addresses and phone numbers) of past jobs you can call and visit.
  • Do they have a warranty on installation and workmanship? How long will you be covered?
  • What is the amount of down payment required?
  • Do they take credit cards? It is much easier to dispute charges if you pay with credit card, should you run into immediate problems.
  • Does the contractor provide product literature and samples prior to the project?
  • Is the contractor’s bid significantly lower than others? Be careful—quality may be an issue.
  • Does the contract specify materials and brands to be used? Make sure it does and make sure these products carry warranties.
  • Make sure cleanup is included in the bid, including gutters and ground areas.
  • Make sure there is a solid arbitration statement in your contract. The roofer must agree to settle disputes through binding arbitration. Without such an agreement, you have no recourse.

Once work begins on your project, pay close attention to the quality and details of the work. Make sure that the contractor is using the materials agreed upon—for example if the contract calls for 30-pound felt, check the labels on the product to verify. Make sure you are getting what you are paying from, from chimney flashing, to vents and pipe jacks.
