Certi-sawn™ cedar shakes are produced by cutting blocks from the log to the desired length. Shakes are then taper sawn to size on both sides in the same way a shingle in manufactured. They differ from shingles in two ways; at 610mm they are longer and at 16mm the butts are much thicker. A shake roof has the same smooth textured look as a shingle roof but as shakes are thicker and heavier more defined shadow line is created.

Tapersawn shakes have the appearance of a smooth faced shingles, but the extra thickness of a shake. As their name suggests they are produced by sawing both faces to achieve a taper.

Cedar shake roofs can be seen all over the US and Canada but are far less common in the UK. They are incredibly durable and are able to withstand extreme weather conditions. Cedar Shake roofs also provide excellent insulation and as a result are increasingly being specified by architects for energy efficient buildings. As far as we are aware, we are the only importer offering this product in the UK. We are confident that if you like the look of Cedar shingles you will love the look of Cedar shakes.
