Steam-Bent Cedar

Roofing Artisans has developed a proprietary process for designing your historic restoration Storybook cedar wood-shingle roofing project.  Our process provides you with many design options based on your budget and aesthetic. From mild cedar wave-coursing to high-design cedar wave-coursing.

At Roofing Artisans, steam-bending cedar wood-shingles is an art into itself. We create templates for each bend required for each of our projects, typically between 20-25 different radial bends are needed.  And of course some very custom bends too!

A storybook roof requires 10,000 or more cedar wood-shingle pieces, each separately hand-bent by our team.
