cedar shake shingles





cedar shake shingles: say that ten times fast. OK, so I've already stated that this is my favorite. I love how the grey over time.
I love the rugged natural look. There isn't much other then perhaps the price and that I fear they might quickly ignite in the desert sun. I may have to hold off until I spend my latter days on the New England Coast (Let a girl dream).

A shake roof can last from 30 to 50 years if it is properly installed and maintained. Be sure to use high quality stainless steel nails or the shingles may outlast the nails.

Cedar shake roofing has remained as the roofing material of choice despite its price and availability of other cheaper roofing materials.
