Trees are a renewable resource and the use of wood building products is an environmentally sound choice. The forest industry replaces what it removes; the same cannot be said of iron ore, precious oil reserves, bauxite or limestone, all used to create alternative building products. Wood is also the most energy-efficient building material available today. When you compare the total energy costs of different kinds of building materials -including the cost to acquire the raw material, transport it, process it into a useful product and then actually use it - wood far outshines its competitors.
Photosynthesis allows trees to absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Young, growing forests remove the most carbon from our air - cleaning the air that we breathe. Forests are key to removing green house gases from our atmosphere. When forest products are manufactured, carbon is stored for decades, some time seven centuries. Because the manufacturing process of Certi-label cedar shakes and shingles is labor intensive, as opposed to energy intensive, the planet benefits even more since there is less energy needed from fossil fuel or natural gas source depletion.
Certi-label cedar is proven to stand the test of time. Decade upon decade of actual, in field successes of CSSB member products stand as true testimony to the strength of the material and its ability to protect your home. Cedar is also naturally decay resistant. Ultimately this means cedar shakes and shingles are the firm pillar of strength protecting you and your family from the elements. Certi-label cedar shakes and shingles withstand the fury of Mother Nature’s storms. They have been scientifically tested, proven to resist wind and are accepted by Dade County, Florida, known for requiring the toughest wind resistance rating in all of North America.
