Shakes

shakes

Shakes are a rough type of wooden shingle, usually redwood, cedar or cypress. They can be either: handsplit, handsplit and sawn on one side, or handsplit and sawn on both sides. They are non-uniform in size and shape and give a rustic look to the exterior of the home. Shakes can be applied in a single course, where all of them are exposed to the elements or a double course in which only the top layer is exposed. Shakes are prone to cupping, a rolling of the shake toward the center, and checking, which is cracking or splitting.
