The materials, finishes, innovations and application of craftsmanship are highly selective and always carefully considered
Canadian Forest Cedar
Cedar has many natural traits which make it resistant to rot and decay.
Cedar fibres contain oils that are natural preservatives. Cedar oils are also a mild pesticide, which act as a deterrent to insects that might cause damage. These traits make cedar ideal for outdoor cladding. Its low rate of heat absorption is also particularly useful, as it remains cool to the touch even on hot days.
Cedar Shingle Roof
This roof is made from treated cedar, managed in a sustainable Canadian forest environment. The cedar is tapered and cut to size by our skilled craftsmen, providing a seamless finish on the circular roofs. The shingles are mounted onto vertical laths allowing the cedar to breathe, they are then attached to a membrane board for further insulation and protection. There is an option of standard marine ply membrane or an external weatherboard with a specialist TeknosTM paint finish, highlighting the ceiling and giving a more contemporary look. We guarantee our cedar shingle roof for 30 years against rot and decay.
