Single Shake

Single shakes are an attractive roofing material made from cedarwood. A shake is a wooden shingle that is applied individually to create a beautiful roofing material. Single shake roofs are known for their durability and cost. However, they should be avoided in regions where forest fires are a risk. Cedar can last at least 10 years longer than other roofing materials, such as asphalt

While protecting your home, single shake roofs can also help to conserve heating and cooling costs. They provide natural insulation that is double that of asphalt shingles
