Oak and Cedar Shingle Roofing
There are two main kinds of cedar wood used in crafting roofing systems – red cedar and white cedar.
Red cedar comes with a higher cost due to the quality of the material. This is also a huge deciding deciding factor when wanting cedar wood for the roofing of your home. Get in touch.

Choose White Cedar for a more cost-effective repair
White cedar is a less costly alternative but is still a good option. It ages attractively to a silvery grayish hue.
Certain types of white cedar wood, such as Atlantic white cedar, Eastern white cedar and Northern white cedar, are resistant to decay, will not splinter and provide good stability.
At Saffron Walden Roofing Contractors, we have worked with cedar shingles on many projects with both red and white cedar across Essex. View our customer reviews.
