Cedar Shakes: a classic style

 In blog


Cedar Shakes can be aesthetically pleasing to the eye and are one the oldest type of roofing materials out there. Historically they were hand cut to shape from the straight grain out of the knot free section of a tree. They are extremely flammable and therefore prone to fires, although this is the case, it isn’t a reason to not install a cedar roof if you are in a fire safe area and can financially afford it.
