Wood & Shake Roofing provides Tradition & Beauty
Used around the world for as long as anyone can remember, Wood & Shake Roofing is a great way to keep that “traditional” look on your home. Used typically in residential neighborhoods, wood shingles, or shakes, can really give your home a natural look and make you stand out from the crowd. They have also improved the manufacturing process and, properly installed, they have a lifespan of 20-40 years!
However, there are some restrictions that certain areas place on this type of roofing due to the fire hazards. While some wood shingles do come pre-treated for fire resistance, there are some local codes that just do not allow them. Make sure you are aware of the local codes in your area before making your choice.
If you still want the look of a natural wood roof but want to avoid the fire hazards that come with it, you should consider looking into synthetic shingles. The manufacturing process of synthetic shingles has advanced and you can achieve a very similar look with this option.
