Wood Shakes/Shingles

Cedar shakes and shingles have been around for more than 200 years. Their natural beauty and architectural versatility have made this material a favorite among architects, builders and homeowners.

Cedar lends itself to patterned roofs ranging from "fancy butt" shingles to "ocean wave" patterns. Cedar shakes and shingles are built to withstand the elements such as winds exceeding 120mph, extreme temperatures and freeze-thaw conditions found across North America. Cedar's cellular structure makes it an excellent insulator, keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Wood shakes and wood shingles are manufactured from western red cedar, cypress, pine and redwood trees. Shakes are split from logs and reshaped by manufacturers for commercial use. Both fire-retardant and preservative treated cedar shakes and shingles are available carrying warranties from 20 years to 50 years. Smooth-sawn shingles, rough-hewn split cedar shakes or thick taper-sawn shakes will enhance your home's appearance.
