Wood Shakes

In terms of appearance, wood shakes provide a thick textured appearance and gives a roof beautiful depth and dimension.

Natural & composite wood

Natural wood

Wood shake is a beautiful and unique roofing type. The patterns and types of roofs are so distinct that you can be sure that it won’t be similar to your neighbor’s with the same type of material. If you want to boost the curb appeal with a distinct roofing type, wood shakes are amongst the best option. 


The other advantage is durability. They have a lifespan of between 30-40 years. Wood is also more eco-friendly, which means it can be more easily recycled and requires a smaller carbon footprint to manufacture.

Beautiful & Unique

Composite Wood

Composite wood shakes are fabricated and designed to appear natural. Typically made from resins and polymers, artificial shakes vary with regards to how natural they look. Some manufacturer’s shakes appear uniform and shiny, while others strive to create more variety in size, texture, and coloring while limiting the sheen. 


There’s a wide variety of quality among these shakes, both in function and aesthetics. Because they’re synthetic, these shakes last longer and can withstand moisture better than natural cedar shakes.

Roof Replacement
There are plenty of sensible reasons to replace your roof other than obvious leaks and holes. If you live in an area that gets hit especially hard by hail, high winds, or other types of storms/bad weather, there’s a good chance the constant thrashing your roof is taking has left it worn down to the point where it may just be more cost-effective to do a full replacement than keep up with spot repairs. If it’s just been a long time since you’ve had your roof replaced, the materials currently protecting your home may be far less effective and efficient compared to newer products on the market. ​
Roof Repair
Whether your roof needs minor repairs, or major ones, you can always count on our seasoned roof repair technicians at Skyline Exteriors to get the job done right. We can handle damage caused by severe storms/weather, wildlife infestations, flashing and ventilation mistakes caused by careless installation, general wear and tear from lack of proper upkeep or age, poor landscaping, insufficient gutter drainage, and anything else that might be going on.
Storm Damage
Whenever your home has been hit by hail, high winds, or any other type of storm damage, seeking restoration services as soon as possible is the only way to save yourself a bigger headache, and expense, later on. Luckily, our comprehensive restoration experts at Skyline Exteriors are always around to make sure you have the resources and support you need to return your roof to its former glory after any natural disaster. ​
