For owners who want a real natural look nothing looks more aesthetically appealing than shake shingles. Although they are traditionally cut from red cedar, they can also be made from redwood, pine, and other woods. Red cedar has been the more popular choice due to their naturally resistant to the elements and their pleasing appearance. They are mostly available in honey, cinnamon, and silvery gray hues.
Homeowners should be aware and concerns about wood shingles fire resistance. Some shakes have no fire resistant at all. However there are shake shingles that incorporate a factory-applied, fire-resistant treatment.
