What are the benefits of a CeDUR composite roof?


CeDUR composite roofs offer several benefits compared to traditional roofing materials. Here are some of the advantages:

Authentic Appearance: CeDUR roofs are designed to replicate the natural beauty of wood shakes or shingles. They are molded from natural wood to achieve a highly realistic texture, grain pattern, and color, providing a visually appealing roof that resembles the classic charm of wood roofing.

Durability: CeDUR roofs are crafted from a composite material that combines polymers, UV inhibitors, fire retardants, and other additives. This composition enhances their resistance to harsh weather conditions, including heavy rain, strong winds, hail, and snow. They are also resistant to insect damage, rot, and decay, making them highly durable and long-lasting.

Additionally, they are not prone to warping, cracking, or splitting like traditional wood roofs, reducing the need for repairs or replacements.

Energy Efficiency: CeDUR composite roofs offer good insulation properties, helping to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the building. This insulation can contribute to energy efficiency by reducing the reliance on heating and cooling systems, resulting in potential cost savings on energy bills.

Environmentally Friendly: CeDUR roofs are an eco-friendly alternative to traditional wood shakes. CeDUR roofs are manufactured using recycled and recyclable materials, reducing the demand for natural resources. They do not contribute to deforestation or involve chemicals typically associated with wood treatments.

It’s important to note that the specific benefits and performance of CeDUR composite roofs may vary based on the product line, regional factors, and installation practices.

Frequently Asked CeDUR Questions

What is the fire rating for CeDUR roofing products?

CeDUR roofing products have a Class A fire rating, the highest rating for fire resistance. This means that CeDUR roofs have undergone testing and meet the standards for fire safety. The Class A rating indicates that the roofing material has demonstrated excellent resistance to spreading flames and contributes to overall fire protection. Having a Class A fire rating provides homeowners with added peace of mind regarding the safety of their property.

Why are CeDUR Synthetic Shakes resistant to fire?

CeDUR Synthetic Shakes are designed to be highly fire-resistant due to their unique composition and manufacturing process. Here are some key factors that contribute to their fire resistance:

Material Composition: CeDUR shakes are made from a composite material with polymers, fire retardants, and other additives. These components are carefully selected and combined to enhance the material’s fire resistance properties.

Fire Retardant Additives: CeDUR incorporates specific fire-retardant additives into their synthetic shakes. These additives help slow down the ignition and spread of flames, making the shakes more fire-resistant.

Testing and Certification: CeDUR roofing products undergo rigorous testing to evaluate their fire performance. They are tested according to recognized industry standards and regulations to ensure that they meet or exceed the requirements for fire resistance. The Class A fire rating is obtained after successfully passing these tests.

Structural Integrity: CeDUR shakes are solid throughout with no hollow or cavity back. This solid structure adds to their fire resistance as no air pockets or voids can fuel the spread of flames.

Non-Combustible Nature: The specific combination of materials used in CeDUR shakes makes them inherently non-combustible. This means that they do not readily catch fire and do not contribute to the spread of flames.

It’s important to note that while CeDUR Synthetic Shakes are highly resistant to fire, following proper fire safety practices and building codes is still essential. This includes ensuring proper installation, and maintenance, and following local regulations regarding fire-resistant roofing materials.

It is always recommended to consult with the manufacturer or roofing professionals for specific details on the fire resistance capabilities of CeDUR roofing products and any relevant fire safety guidelines in your area.

How does CeDUR perform in high-wind areas?

CeDUR roofing products are designed to perform well in high-wind areas. Here are some factors that contribute to their wind resistance:

Material Strength: CeDUR shakes are made from a durable composite material engineered to withstand strong winds. The material is designed to be rigid and resistant to bending or warping under high wind conditions.

Interlocking Design: CeDUR shakes have an interlocking design, which enhances their resistance to wind uplift. This design helps to create a secure and tight fit between the individual shakes, reducing the risk of wind-driven damage or lifting.

Installation Practices: Proper installation is crucial for optimal wind resistance. CeDUR shakes should be installed following the manufacturer’s guidelines and in accordance with local building codes. Professional installation ensures that the shakes are securely fastened and the roof system is properly sealed against wind and water infiltration.

Testing and Certification: CeDUR roofing products undergo testing to evaluate their wind resistance capabilities. They are tested for their ability to withstand specific wind speeds and pressures. This testing helps to ensure that CeDUR roofs can withstand the wind forces typically experienced in high-wind areas.

While CeDUR roofing products are designed to perform well in high-wind areas, it’s essential to consider other factors, such as the roof’s design, slope, and overall structural integrity. It is recommended to consult with roofing professionals or follow local building codes and regulations to ensure the proper installation and performance of CeDUR roofs in high wind zones.

Can CeDUR be installed over roofing materials like asphalt or wood shakes?

No. CeDUR should not be installed over existing roofing materials. Improper installation will void the warranty. It is strongly recommended to consult with a professional roofing contractor who is experienced with CeDUR products and familiar with local building codes. They will be able to assess the specific requirements of your project and provide guidance on the proper installation procedures for CeDUR shakes. Following the manufacturer’s instructions and industry best practices will help ensure a successful and long-lasting installation.

How is a CeDUR roof protected against moisture?

CeDUR roofs do not require sealants and are developed to prevent moisture intrusion with Closed Cell Technology.

Will the color of my CeDUR roof fade?

CeDUR™ Shakes are intentionally designed to undergo a color shift when exposed to sunlight. This natural color transformation occurs gradually over four to eight weeks, depending on the duration and intensity of sun exposure. Eventually, the color stabilizes, creating a beautiful, weathered wood hue consistent throughout the product’s lifespan.

Does CeDUR require a special fire-resistant underlayment?

No. CeDUR products do not require a special underlayment.
