Wood shingles and shakes form a light and durable roof cover, with a unique aesthetic in the modern architectural landscape. Depending on the location of the building, you can choose a shake roof that will fit perfectly in a traditional landscape as well as in a modern urban environment.
The durability of the wood shakes depends on the local climate, the exposure to certain weather phenomena and the slope of the roof. The steeper the roof, the longer the wood shakes will last. If damage occurs, replacing wood shakes is a relatively easy thing to do.
Wood shingles and shakes can be the traditional choice for a modern environment, being used for new buildings or renovations, both for roofs and walls, especially nowadays when the emphasis on eco-friendliness and sustainability is growing.
The light weight of wood shakes is an advantage in areas with a higher seismic risk. Also, this type of roof can be seen as a cost-efficient option, given the fact that the resistance structure of the construction should not be reinforced, as is the case with ceramic tiles.
Wood shakes offer the following benefits:
- manufactured and treated ecologically , which ensures resistance to various climatic conditions
- good protection against moisture, forming one of the tightest roofing systems;
- 100% ecological
- very good flexibility and resistance to low temperatures
- light weight
- safety when walking on the roof.
