What is roof shingles or wood shingles? Roofing shingles are almost always highly visible and so are an important aspect of home and building’s aesthetics in patterns, textures and colors.
Two types of wood shingles are called shingles and shakes. The difference is in how they are made, the roof shingles are sawn and shakes are split. The use of wooden roofing wood shingles has existed in parts of the world with a long tradition of wooden buildings, especially in Northern America.
All wood shingle roofing is installed from the bottom upward beginning with a starter course and the edge seams offset to avoid leaks. Most roofing shingle installations benefit from being placed on top of an underlayment building material such as asphalt felt paper to prevent leaks even from wind driven rain and snow and ice dams in cold climates.
Yellow Cedar Roof Shingles
Yellow cedar is one of the world’s most durable woods. Yellow cedar has a distinctive and uniform yellow color. The narrow band of sapwood is very similar in color to the heartwood. The wood is fine textured and straight grained. Yellow-cedar’s natural extractives make it a decay resistant wood and aromatic when cut.
Red Cedar Roof Shingles
Red cedar has a stronger reddish color; its tannin could potentially bleed and cause staining on the surface of the shingle – which makes a distinct look. Red Cedar shingles will last much longer than asphalt shingles. With correct maintenance, you can anticipate that your cedar roofing will remain in quality condition for up to 50 years or longer.
