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.
