Cedar shakes and shingles provide a natural look and feel that cannot be replicated by man-made roofing products. Cedar wood contains oils that naturally resist decay and can withstand the extreme temperature variations of Alberta weather. There are two main types of Cedar shakes and shingles available: Handsplit & Resawn and Taper Sawn.
Handsplit and Resawn shakes have the split face exposed and visible. These shakes are perfect for a more rustic, natural look to your home.
Taper Sawn shakes and shingles have a more tailored appearance. These shakes are sawn on both sides to give a cleaner overall look.
