The Truth About Shake (Wood) Shingles

We feel it is important to keep our customers educated about the usage of shake (wood) shingles. There are many downsides to using shake shingles for your roofing project.

Shake shingles

  • will mold, rot, and warp
  • harbor many pests including termites and carpenter ants, which will not only damage the roof, but also attract scavenging birds
  • have a lower life expectancy than other types of shingles
  • are commonly treated with short-life wipe-on or spray-on fire retardants
  • are not allowed by code in many areas due to fire hazards

Many insurance companies will lower your insurance rate if you switch from shake to composition shingles. This reduction will more than pay for itself over the life of your new roof.
