Choosing between cedar shake and cedar shingles

Cedar shake shingles

Cedar shake shingles often have a tapered, rectangular shape, spanning around 16-24 inches in length. The appealing irregular edges of split shakes give them a rustic, naturally textured look. More refined shake shingles feature cleaner edges, known as “rebutted and re-squared” (R&R) shingles. Various wood species are employed, contributing to varying shake shingle lengths. Cedar roofing materials have fire retardant chemicals in today’s fire-conscious world, frequently earning them a Class A Fire Rating for safety.
