A Natural Roofing Material
In this age of synthetics and man-made improvements, there’s still a place for natural building materials like wood shakes. They equal or exceed asphalt shingles in longevity, and the way they fade from gold to a natural gray over the years has a charm nothing else can match.
There are many reasons homeowners still choose wood shakes today including:
- Beautiful, classic appearance
- Longer lifespan than asphalt shingles, especially when well maintained
- Lightweight and don’t burden older structures like slate, tile, or even asphalt shingles
- Naturally insect-resistant and can be treated to make resistance last longer
- Reusable, making it an eco-friendly choice
Natural shakes are technically not the same as wood shingles. Shingles are sawn smooth, whereas shakes are split from the wood and have a rougher, more natural appearance. They may also be larger than shingles.
Wood Shakes & Moisture
Shakes last longest in dry environments. Though natural shakes have some resistance to water, in shady areas where shakes don’t have a chance to dry, they may eventually grow moss and lichen, which trap more water. However, even in moderately rainy areas like Ada and Fort Lauderdale, shakes can last decades if kept clean of debris and exposed to the sun. They also last longer on steeper grade roofs, which shed water more quickly.
