Chicagoland Residential Wood Shake Roofing Professionals
There are a few different types of wood shakes – Hand Splits, Perfections, Fire Treated, and Pressure Treated. They are generally made from hardwood like western red cedar or cypress.
For Hand Splits, the manufacturer makes them from a log and splits it into 2 equal parts thick at one side and taper down to nothing at the other. Hand Splits have the split face exposed with a naturally rustic appearance and come in random widths. Perfections are cut by a machine and are all uniform, unlike the Hand Splits that come in random width sizes. Perfections are cut on a saw and are all uniform.
