What Our Contractors Can Do For You
Why Choose Cedar Roofing?
Cedar shingles and hand-split shakes are high-quality roofing materials that combine appearance and protective performance. Here are the three main benefits of choosing choose cedar roofing shakes:
What Our Contractors Can Do For You
The cedar tree is widely regarded as one of the toughest types of wood in the world. The natural quality and thickness of this type of wood also make it a very low-maintenance roofing material.
A wood roof, especially from a cedar tree block, is also a natural fit for weathering the volatile climate in Texas. As-is, this type of wood resists moisture, insects, and winds with ease. With extra preservatives, your wood shingles can even be fire-resistant!
A hand-split shake roof is a natural insulator. In hot months, they help keep your house cool by acting as a barrier to the hot sunlight. Conversely, this type of roof can keep you warm in winter by ensuring your heater’s warmth doesn’t leave the house.
People have used wood shakes and shingles for centuries. Wood shakes and shingles give your house a clean, tailored appearance while cedar shakes give your home a rougher, rustic appearance.
Another unique benefit of using cedar shakes and wood shingles is that the appearance changes over time. Because of weathering, your cedar roofs and sides will eventually turn a classy silvery gray.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cedar Shakes And Shingles
A cedar shingle roof is a sizable investment for most homeowners. To help you make an informed decision, we answer three of the most commonly asked questions about cedar shake wood roofing:
What are the differences between cedar shakes and wood shingles?
Wood roofing is divided into two main types – shingles and hand-split shakes – based on the splitting process and end result. Here are the differences between the two:
- Wood shingles: Much like asphalt shingles, this variety of wood roofing gives your house a clean, uniform look. They’re made by sawing one block of wood into several shingle pieces using power tools.
- Hand-split wood shakes: In contrast to shingles, cedar shakes are hand-split from the log, giving each shake piece a unique look. Wood shake roofing is better for adding a rustic look to your home.
How Long Does Wood Shakes And Shingles Last?
Due to their natural longevity and thickness, wood shakes and shingles can last longer compared to their asphalt and slate tile counterparts.
If properly maintained and regularly inspected, cedar shake or shingle can last 30-50 years. In some cases, your cedar shake or shingle can last beyond half a century!
How do you maintain cedar shakes and shingles?
While we suggest that wood shake and shingle maintenance be done by professionals, here are some tips for DIY wood roofing product maintenance:
- Check your hand-split cedar shake roof and siding for damage regularly, especially after a severe weather incident like a storm or hail.
- Trim branches from nearby trees to prevent them from falling on your roof and siding when a storm hits.
- Install gutters to prevent water from pooling on your hand-split wood shakes. Water buildup can promote wood rot and fungal growth.
