The last roof you will ever need.
Strong shadow lines and a rich, textured look. A very beautiful version of a classic roof.
Historically, local trees, usually cedar, were cut down to get to the strong, inner wood. They were then wedged and split down by hand into thinner pieces.
Cedar Shake made for excellent roofs and gave good protection from heavy winds and rain … hail, snowstorms, and even hurricanes. They also gave energy benefits for heat and insulation … and were eco-friendly.
But overall a Shake roof is not great in damp environments. It’s susceptible to mildew, mold, and rot.
A shake roof also needs to be kept clean of any tree debris such as leaves or branches. And any sap from overhanging trees will encourage mildew. And once rot sets in, you’ll probably need to look at replacing your entire roof.
On top of that, shake shingles are expensive, and expensive to install. They require maintenance some experts say from $500-$1000 a year.
They are also flammable, and people find the looks of their beautiful new roof start to diminish after about only 5 years or so.
And some are finding their roofs starting to decay in as little as 10 years.
But cedar roofs used to last, they could easily last 35 years and up to 50 years. But that is not the case anymore.
Nowadays, trees are grown and cut down quickly to meet demand, which isn’t giving Shake roofs the same strength they once had.
Age. The trees are too young, and do not have the same strength and durability that came from old-growth trees.
Any Shake roofing you can purchase now are from 2nd growth trees. You can feel the difference in the softness of the wood from 2nd growth or even 3rd growth trees by easily pressing your fingers in to the wood.
On top of that, cedar roofing is not as environmentally sustainable as you might think.
Replantation is happening … but to get a strong tree, it at minimum takes over 100 years for a tree to reach maturity, and some experts would even say 200 years.
So, if you have a roof that used to last … say up to 50 years … but it takes over 100 years to grow or longer? It doesn’t add up as a sustainable practice.
Our Shake shingles look beautiful when installed.
They are interlocked four ways, blending them together visually, resulting in a distinctively rugged and warm pattern.

On a sunny day, these UV rays typically penetrate traditional roofing materials and greatly increase the temperature of your homes attic space resulting in higher cooling costs. Metal roofs can conserve energy by reducing cooling costs up to 25%*.
