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