The Difference Between Shingles and Shakes
Many homeowners ask us about the difference between wood shingles and wood shakes. Wood shingles are sawn or cut to be uniform in size and thickness. Wood shakes are more irregular in appearance and have at least one split face. Both are usually available in varying widths, one of the features that give a wood roof its rustic appearance.
