Cedar Shingles and Shakes

Cedar roofing materials offer a couple of benefits when compared to other roofing materials like asphalt shingles. The most obvious advantage of cedar roofing is its natural beauty and charm that it adds to any home. Cedar roofing is also a better insulator than asphalt shingles, making it easier to keep your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer – leading to lower energy costs.

There are two primary types of roofing materials made of cedar – shakes and shingles. The main difference between cedar shakes and cedar shingles is how precisely they are manufactured. Simply, shingles are produced more uniformly, making them more even and allowing them to rest flat against your roof. In contrast, cedar shakes are made to be uneven and will sit flat on top of your roof.

Types of Cedar Roofing

  • Handsplit Shakes: The most popular cedar roofing shake. Handsplit shakes are manufactured with split faces and sawn backs to produce a layered appearance.
  • Tapersawn Shakes: Tapersawn shakes are sawn on both sides to create a smooth, even look across their home’s roof.
  • Cedar Shingles: These can be installed on virtually any roofing application from traditional homes and siding to commercial roofs. Cedar shingles are uniform and offer the perfect blend of form and function.
