What is the Difference Between Wood Shakes and Wood Shingles?
When most people think of wood shingles, they are actually visualizing wood shakes. Shakes are typically split on one or both sides, creating a grooved texture. Shakes are thicker than shingles, and most shakes are made from cedar, but can also be made of red wood, pine and pressure treated wood that can last up to 50 years. In contrast, shingles are sawn on both sides and are thinner at the butt than shakes. Most shingles are composed of two or more materials.
