Wood Shingles and Shakes
Wood shingles are usually made of cedar, but are sometimes made of other woods that are rot resistant. Using wood shingles gives your home or building a very natural look, and over time will turn to a grayish silver due to weathering. You can get them in thick split shakes or in sawn shingles. Because wood is a natural material, wood shingles of course is very eco-friendly.
The lifespan of wood shingles is very short and unfortunately will require frequent maintenance over time. Wood shingles have an excellent wind resistance, however are not very fire resistant unless the wood has been treated. They are moderate in weight and cost.
