Roofing – Building Resources for Log Homes

Log Home Options

Roofing for log homesWith log and timber frame homes, roofing serves two purposes; to keep out the weather and add a visual impact. The most common choices include traditional shingles, metal, slate and tile (clay).

Metal roofing is a popular choice because most metal roofing is warranted for 50 years or more, it is often less expensive, installs quickly and will use a reflective barrier to block up to 96% of the radiant heat from the sun.

Asphalt and fiberglass shingles are the most common in use across the USA as they are economical. Be aware that asphalt and fiberglass shingles can suffer a shortened lifespan as a result of heat from a roof that is ventilated improperly. Having adequate soffit and ridge vents installed will allow heat to escape without damaging the shingles.

Shakes and wood shingles are a popular choice for log cabins due to the rustic look. Wooden shakes are split and uneven while wood shingles are machine cut and more even.

Green Options

Recycled materials are now used to produce roofing products. Recycled tires that look like slate are less expensive and do not require the roof structure be as sturdy as needed to support a slate roof.

Choosing the best log home roofing will reduce maintenance costs and offer greater protection while increasing your enjoyment of your log home.
