Wood shake has become an increasingly popular choice of roofing materials. While all materials have certain advantages and disadvantages, each one will usually work best for specific situations. To help you decide if wood shake might prove right for you, we’ve listed some of the benefits associated with it:
Because of its low density and shrinkage rate, these roofs lie as laid, stay straight, and stay fastened tightly.
While not all woods have the same strength, most of them have exceptional durability.
Natural preservatives keep things like water, insects, and decay at bay for longer. Because of this, these roofs function well in many different climates.
This material has great thermal insulation properties. It will keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Wood shakes come in many different colors and textures. Because each cut comes from a different tree, no two roofs end up looking quite the same.
If these sound like things that you want out of your roof, you might want to consider wood shake as an option. Here at Williams Roofing and Construction, Inc., we offer wood shake installation alongside many other services. To find out more, give us a call at (217) 636-8071.
