Wood shake roofing, more commonly referred to as cedar shake or cedar shingles, has been in use for hundreds of years.
Shake roofing systems have a proven track record for performance in extreme weather conditions, including high winds,
heavy rain, and pounding hail.
Wood shakes (and wood shingles) are manufactured from western red cedar, cypress, southern yellow
pine and redwood trees. The most commonly used wood shake for roofing is western red cedar.
Cedar shakes contain natural oils that make them naturally decay and insect resistant.
Cedar shakes are also available pressure treated with fire retardants and chemical preservatives to
increase fire resistance and help prevent premature rot and decay.
Wood shake roofing systems are also environmentally friendly. The wood used for the roofing shakes is
a naturally grown product from trees, not man made. When the time comes for a wood shake roof to be
replaced, the old roof does not end up as toxic material in a land fill, wood shakes are biodegradable.
Shake roofs provide an aesthetic natural, warm and elegant look. It is no wonder why they have been
the choice of roofing architects and roofing contractors alike.
When you need a wood shake or cedar shake roof installed, repaired, or replaced, be sure to select one

It will add years to the life of your roof along with increasing the beauty and value of your property.
