The roof over our heads is what keeps us safe from the elements and makes a statement about our tastes. It’s hard to find a roofing material that’s more charming than a cedar roof or more durable than a slate roof. Tague Lumber specializes in cedar and slate roofing. We’re committed to supplying the finest quality materials for the roof over your head.
Cedar Roofing is both beautiful and functional. Cedar roofing shingles have been widely used in North America for over 100 years, particularly in the Northeast. While the 18” Perfection shingles are the most popular in the United States, the 24” Royal shingles have been particularly popular in the Philadelphia area and throughout Pennsylvania. Cedar roofs can last as long as 50 to 60 years, are easy to repair and are a good environmental choice. Cedar roofs last longer than asphalt shingle roofs and can be turned into cedar mulch chips when removed instead of going to the landfill. Tague Lumber carries 18” Perfection and 24” Royal hand split shingles in stock. For more information about the advantages of cedar roofing, visit the Cedar Bureau website.
