Wood Shake Roofing
Wooden shakes and shingles are typically made from cedar boards and then treated to resist rotting and bug damage. Cedar shingles are uniformly cut pieces of wood and cedar shakes are typically more imprecise in their shape and cut.
The Benefits of a Wooden Roof
Cedar is extremely durable and is known for being the world’s toughest wood.
Wooden roofs are generally easy to install and even easier to repair and maintain.
Cedar roofing can be finished with oils, stains, or paints to add eye-catching character to any home.
- Environmentally Friendly:
Wooden roofing materials are 100% recyclable.
What Are Wood Shingles?
Wood shingles are thin, tapered pieces of wood primarily used to cover roofs and walls of buildings to protect them from the weather. Historically shingles were split from straight grained, knot free bolts of wood. Today shingles are mostly made by being cut which distinguishes them from shakes which are made by being split out of a bolt.
