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

  • Strength:
    Cedar is extremely durable and is known for being the world’s toughest wood.
  • Workability:
    Wooden roofs are generally easy to install and even easier to repair and maintain.
  • Beauty:
    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.

More On Wood Shake

Wood shake is a true classic roofing material for residential properties, and arguably the most aesthetically pleasing out of all the choices. And while you may think that newer materials such as asphalt and metal are superior, a wood shake is more than just a pretty roofing material.
Wood shake shingles are made from natural hardwood, such as cedar. Since wood is a natural insulator, your wood shake shingles will ensure warmer indoor temperatures in winter and will naturally cool your home in the warm summer months. This makes wood shake a good choice if you want to increase the energy efficiency of your home.
Our high-quality wood shake shingles have the ability to maintain their original form and dimensions even under the strain of increasingly humid conditions. The inert chemical composition of natural wood shakes prevents shrinkage and gives them a level of durability that matches asphalt.
