shake roofs

Today cedar is considered a premium roofing product, featured on many of the area’s finer homes. In some neighborhoods, local covenants may require the use of cedar or similar wood. Cedar can either be found in a rough-cut form (called shake) or a more uniform saw-cut plank (called shingles). Because of variations in color, width, thickness, or cut of wood, no two shake roofs will ever look the same. Cedar may require higher installation and maintenance costs, but many local homeowners find the beauty of this natural product well worth the extra expense.
