Ceder timber tiles no more!

Website

A beautiful 1930s double-story Greek-Revival character home was being completely renovated to protect its heritage. The existing roof had old cedar timber tiles which were tired and in need of replacement.

Viking’s EcoStar Seneca Shake roofing tiles comprise of up to 80% post-industrial recycled plastic and rubber. Despite being synthetic, real cedar shakes are used as a template during the manufacturing process, to create intricate texture that truly appears natural. Unlike wood, Seneca Shake provides superior protection from the most extreme weather conditions including temperature change and UV sunlight. 

The tiles were installed on a Viking StrandSarking substrate which added significant bracing to the building compared with the traditional method of nailing individual tiles to purlins. The combined weight of the roofing system including sarking, was a surprisingly light 24 kg / m2 therefore strengthening the building’s structure while lessening the stress on it.

The roof was installed by a Viking Approved Applicator, whose level of workmanship mirrored the very high standard required for this period building from both aesthetic and waterproofing perspectives.
