Shakes and Shingles trace their history throughout American home styles. This style was once the siding choice for the post Victorian "Shingle Style" of the late 19th century as well as for the many styles of the Arts and Crafts period. They were prevalent in the Craftsman Style bungalows, both for roofing and siding, and work beautifully for many cottage styles. So regardless of the style of your home, a Shake and Shingle application can bring a simple charm or a elite sophistication to it.
So what is the difference between a shake and a shingle? A shingle is thinner at the butt than a shake, once sawn on both sides, and milled more precisely than shakes. Cedar Shakes are more irregular, and sometimes machine grooved to appear more like authentic hand split shakes and while rarely hand split these days, they still follow the dimensional rules of their predecessors. Shakes follow the grain more closely.
The best feature of today's shakes and shingles? Whether you are selecting the rough split look of the Hand Split Shakes or the more uniform look of the Perfection 5" or 7" shingle, all offer an authentic appearance while eliminating the significant weakness of real wood products - wood rot.
With Cedar Discovery many home owners find the beauty of American wood without the lifetime of maintenance or repair.
Perfect for accents, wainscots, entryways, or full home cladding, designed for strength and durability, and with low maintenance the choice is yours.
