Western Red Cedar roofing has been installed on homes throughout Jamaica for many years. It remains the roofing of choice for building owners who want to retain a natural, sophisticated and even rustic look for their properties. Spectrum has taken the initiative in this market and has presented to the consumer the widest selection of cedar roofing options available from a single supplier. And all of our cedar products carry Certi® labels confirming premium best-you-can-buy quality, as certified by Canada’s Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau. Our supplier S&W Forest Products is one of the leading Bureau certified manufacturers in British Columbia, Canada, undergoing frequent successful quality audits.
Wallaba Shingle roofing has recently made great strides in Jamaica in gaining acceptance as a high durability alternative to traditional wood roofing. Wallaba is a hardwood that grows throughout South America, with Guyana being the leading source for shingles manufactured from this very dense and durable wood. With a lifespan of 40 years and the naturally warm sophistication of a wood roof, Wallaba has a bright future as a cost effective roofing option. Our Wallaba Shingles are manufactured by one of Guyana’s leading companies in this field, and are certified to be premium grade best-you-can-buy quality.
