Benefits of Wood Shake Roofs


When you think of ski chalets and winter cabins, wooden structures immediately come to mind because wood is well-known for its insulation properties. The same is true of wood shake roofing systems. Give your HVAC system a break by installing a wood shake roof that enables you to better regulate your property’s interior temperature.

Unique & Lasting Curb Appeal

Wood shake offers a particular aesthetic that is rare to find in your typical neighborhood or business complex. That’s why this type of roof is sure to catch the eye of visitors and passersby. The natural materials lend an earthy and traditional feel to any building. Wood shake roofs also outlast typical asphalt shingles with a 40-year lifespan when properly maintained.


As you may expect, wood shake roofs are earth-friendly, making them a terrific option for the eco-conscious property owner. In many cases, wood can be milled and purchased locally. It can also be recycled at the end of its lifespan, depending on which sealants and stains are used.


Wood shake roofs can maintain their form in the face of humidity, UV exposure, high winds, and other weather conditions. They are less prone to cracking, breaking, and curling, which are problems that sometimes arise with conventional asphalt shingles. Because of this, property owners enjoy fewer repair and replacement costs.
