Image result for cedar hand split shakes

Hand-split cedar shakes have at least one split face for a naturally rustic, random width appearance.

Quite honestly, the Handsplit & Resawn shake market can be difficult to understand. Not only are there many different terms used for the same products, and the same terms used for different products, but virtually identical looking products to the untrained eye are vastly different to the mills, their distributors, the retailers and their bottom lines. We won’t even try to sort it out here. 

Our goal is simple – to offer our customers top quality product at very fair prices. We do this by putting together a comprehensive system that assures you of:

  • Hand Picked Quality! Direct from the best mills to your roof! We work with only the most established mills in the industry, which guarantees you of finding products made from top-quality materials. We know the value that a cedar shake roof offers, so we are committed to helping our clients harness its full advantages. Aside from the state that your roof will be in, our top-quality products also grant optimal long-lasting value. You can save on costs, time, and other resources. 
  • Complete Satisfaction Before Purchase. You see the product before you buy. We are determined to help you realize that your purchase is one of the best you’ve ever made. We ensure this by allowing you to check the actual product before you decide to have it shipped to your address. In addition, you get an inspection report before you buy. This way, you can properly determine whether the shake or shingle or other cedar shake roofing product that you’re planning to buy is the right one for your needs.  

Convenient and Pleasant Customer Experience

The WoodRoof.com system is designed to make your shake purchase easy and worry free. You can easily browse our catalog to find the product that you need. We have a wide selection of cedar shakes you can choose from. We also have handy tips and suggestions so that you can make a more informed purchase. As mentioned before, we guarantee that we will not sell the cheapest shake. However, we might just be the least expensive supplier for the highest quality shakes available. Give us a try!

Uses

A rustic character with a country appeal. Split and then re-sawn cedar shakes are sawn on the backside while the faces of the Shake are split along the natural grain of the wood. This process gives the cedar wood a highly textured surface and looks great on chalets, modern country villas, or a ocean-side retreat. Popular products in this grade are Heavy and Medium Shakes which are thicker and heavier than any number of other grades of shingles, giving the roof a very rugged or rustic appearance.
