    We had age and storm damage to the two roofs of our commercial property. Olympus Roofing responded quickly, providing a comprehensive and knowledgeable evaluation which included options for the roof structure, including the skylights which … More were in need of repair.
    The Olympus crews were on time, courteous and efficient, and finished on schedule. They rate top notch in our book, and we will not hesitate to recommend them and use them again.

    Olympus Roofing is awesome. I called them in the morning, and had a quote that same evening for gutters. Cason answered all my calls and texts immediately. Hands down the most detailed, best quote I’ve ever seen. He took pictures, and highlighted … More exactly where our gutters and downspouts needed to be. Not only that, but he made us a video explaining every detail. My husband was so impressed and that’s saying something. I walked away not having a single question and feeling completely confident that they’re professionals. That’s when you know a company is doing something right. I would recommend Olympus Roofing to anyone.

    Estimator was friendly, quick, and informative without being too pushy. They installed the roof less than a week after we signed, and they removed the old roof, installed the new roof, and cleaned up within a day. They communicated well … More throughout the experience.
    We had a leak in our old roof that necessitated a replacement. Insurance unfortunately wouldn't cover it. Even though paying out of pocket for a new roof is rough, Olympus offered competitive rates for competitive products. They installed a new ~3000 sq ft roof with valley metal, ridge vents, and Owens Corning Duration shingles (6 nails).

    Olympus Roofing was very professional , responsive and replaced our roof with a High Quality Shingle for a very competitive price. I give them very high marks and have passed along their name to close friends and neighbors. As … More an added bonus, they were just pleasant folks! Dan M

At Olympus Roofing, we offer specially treated wood products with increased fire resistance for Salt Lake City homes. If a cedar wood shingle or cedar wood shake roof is what you are looking for, we can make your roof an object of beauty with natural wood roofing products.

Types of Cedar Roofs Roofs We Install

The beautiful appearance of a cedar-clad roof is sure to increase the value of any property. Naturally insulating, cedar roofs provide almost twice the insulation as asphalt shingles. Lasting around 20-30 years, cedar roofs only get better with age, slowly changing into beautiful grayish-silver tones. Cedar roofs have been around for hundreds of years and will be around for hundreds more.

Cedar Shingle Roofing

Cedar shingles are different in that they are sawed on each side. This cutting method makes them more uniform in appearance, but it leaves cross-grain saw marks. They’re a less expensive alternative to cedar shakes and provide a consistent look to your roof.

Cedar Shake Roofing

Cedar shakes have all the advantages of cedar shingles but are for those looking for a more rustic look. Unlike shingles, which are cut to look the same, every shake is unique—making your building look like it stood the test of time for the last 60 years and plans to last 60 more.

The Pros and Cons of Cedar Roofing

When making your selection about the type of cedar roofing to fit your needs, there will be pros and cons. We have broken down the list for you:

Pros of Cedar Roofing

  • Eco-Friendly: Cedar roofing material is not only 100% biodegradable and friendly to Mother Earth, but it is also incredibly energy-efficient. It insulates your home while still allowing it to breathe, which saves on heating and cooling costs.
  • Insulation: Cedar offers natural energy efficiency up to two times more insulating than asphalt. Saving you money on your heating and cooling bills.
  • Beauty: Cedar roofs are like no other. They add charm to your home that is otherwise impossible to achieve.

Cons of Cedar Roofing

  • Maintenance: Cedar roofs probably have the most maintenance required from all roofing materials.
  • Longevity: Cedar does not maintain its structural integrity like metal, slate, or tile. If you’re planning on living in your home for more than 20 years, you most likely will have to completely replace your cedar roof.
