Cedar Shakes

Cedar Shakes

Silva Timber offers Cedar Shakes in Western Red Cedar or Yellow Cedar and a ‘tapersawn’ or ‘hand-split’ finish.

Cedar Shakes are thicker than shingles, and arguably more characterful, making them incredibly durable, withstanding extreme weather conditions.

Cedar shakes also provide excellent insulation and is therefore increasingly specified by architects as roofing and exterior cladding for energy-efficient buildings. Western Red Cedar shakes are naturally split providing a more rustic appearance and thicker profile than Cedar shingles.
