Wood Shingle Roofing
Wood shingles are thin, tapered pieces of wood. Historically, wood shingles were split from straight grained, “bolts” of wood, creating what is known as a “shake.” Wood shingles are cut instead of split.
Benefits of Wood Shake Shingle Roofing
- One of the most natural looking roofs, especially as it weathers to soft gray
- Has insulation value
- Easy to repair or replace
- Can last 30 + years if well maintained
- Can be pressure-treated to improve fire protection qualities
- Available as real or synthetic wood shingles
Traditional wood roofing such as cedar shakes and pine shakes can also be replicated with synthetic, man-made wood shakes – these are much safer in terms of fire prevention and much more versatile when it comes to selecting a color (especially if you don’t want the color to fade with exposure to the sun).
