Many wood shakes and shingles have been replaced by composition or asphalt shingles. Nevertheless, wood shakes and shingles are still widely used on both commercial structures and residential housing. There are essentially three different types of wood roofing products which include hand-split shakes, taper-sawn shakes and wood shingles. Most of them are made from the western red cedar tree and occasionally southern pine.
Wood shake and shingles are enjoyed by many Colorado residents because they provide a warm and elegant look. In fact, aesthetic reasons are the main justification as to why people elect to go with a wooden roof on their home.
Each wood roof product is graded according to the cut and number of defects. Wood shingles are thinner than shakes and come in Grades 1, 2 and 3. Hand-split shakes have two grades which include premium and Grade 1. Keep in mind, up to 20% of wood shakes can be flat grain, which is more vulnerable to curling. Taper-sawn shakes are just as thick as hand-split shakes and are sawn smooth on both sides. They come in three grades which include premium and Grades 1 & 2.
