The Difference Between Shingles and Shakes

cedar shakes

Many homeowners ask us about the difference between cedar shingles and cedar shakes. Cedar shingles are sawed or cut to be uniform in size and thickness. Cedar shakes are more irregular in appearance and have at least one split face. Both are usually available in varying widths, one of the features that give a cedar wood roof its rustic appearance.

A cedar shake roof is naturally beautiful and long-lasting, provided it is designed and properly installed by a skilled roofer.  Schedule your FREE in-home consultation and estimate today.
