New and Replacement Cedar Shake Roofs
Wood shakes, most often made of cedar, are the roofing material to use if you want your building to have a more rustic, cottage-like appearance. Although this material is often associated with homes, some business designs use cedar shakes to a great effect. Truly, this is a material to choose if you want to distinguish your business with a rustic charm.
The difference between wood shakes and shingles comes from how they are made. Shingles are more uniform and precise. They will lay flat and fit together in an interlocking pattern. Shakes, on the other hand, are rough hewn and irregular. Often they are thicker than shingles, but may not always fit together so precisely. A layer of felt is usually installed between the rows of shakes to compensate for any gaps.
There are specific regulations governing the installation of wood shakes. Weaver Companies is proud to be a member of the Cedar Shake and Shingle Bureau, a governing body that ensures you are working with a roofer who will build your shake roof correctly.
