Cedar roofing shingles are a favorite of many homeowners for their natural, rustic appearance. In America, wood roof shingles and cedar shakes date back to the Colonial Period when they were the roofing system of choice. Wood roof shingles are commonly cut from red cedar and sawn uniformly. Cedar shakes are also frequently hand-split, creating a more rustic appearance. Unfortunately, for all their visual appeal, real cedar shake shingles suffer from a variety of weathering, durability, and safety issues that affect natural wood over time. Real cedar shake shingles are a common fire hazard that have homeowners and insurance companies apprehensive over their continued usage.
