Difference Between Wood Shingles and Wood Shakes
To a normal homeowner, you might not know the difference between a shingle and shake. You can look around your neighborhood at different homes roofs with wood shingles and still not see a clear-cut difference as some appear to be more worn, some brand new.
Wood shingles are thinner wood shakes. They are smooth on both sides and have a tapered cut to them. These shingles give your homes roof a ‘clean cut’ look.
Wood shake shingles are thicker than wooden shingles. They have a rough surface look. There are two types of wooden shake shingles. The first being a handsplit and resawn the second being tapersawn. Handsplit shingles have a split face exposure whereas tapersawn shingles are sawn on both sides for a semi-textured look. A wood shake roof and a wood shingled roof are built to withstand many years of natural wear. Whether you want a clean-cut look, or more of a rugged look, First Choice Gutters and Siding can install your new wood shingled roof at an affordable cost in a timely manner.
