Have you ever considered wood roofing? It can be a very beautiful and stylish choice, even if it might not be the most durable or cheapest option out there.
What should you keep in mind when choosing wood roofing? The first point to keep in mind is that wood roofing is quite high maintenance. If you are not ready to spend the time and money to take care of it, you probably shouldn’t choose to get that type of roofing material. Instead of being a beautiful addition to your home, it will quickly become a liability, falling apart and offering very little protection from the elements.
Wood roofing is covered with a fire retardant chemical when it comes from the manufacturer, but as time passes, it will no longer be efficient, and will need to be reapplied.
You also need to make sure that no wood-boring insects infest your roof, which might require the use of pesticides. You should also make sure that water doesn’t collect on the roof, causing mold growth, rot and water damage.
