wood shake commercial roofing system kansas citySo its come time to get your commercial roof replaced, but the question remains: What type of material are you going to use?

You’ve looked into all of the common roofing materials but have come down to the conclusion that you think wood shake shingles look the best.

But now you find out there are two types of wood shake shingles.

You have wood shake shingles and basic wood shingles. But which one is better?

Wood Shakes Vs Wood Shingles – What are The differences?

Well there really isn’t that much of a difference between the two to the untrained eye. Neither one of them will last as long as a synthetic roofing system, but there’s just something special about having an all-wood roof.

Wood Shingles  These are the more basic form of shingles. These are simple wood shingles that have a smooth and constant look that provide your roof a very basic and uniform look.

Wood Shakes – These are shingles that have been split and carved by machine to give that old exquisite look. This leads to rougher and less constant texture that will make your roof look different than all the others. 

Which Should You Get? 

Our recommendation: IF you are looking for a more modern and simple look then we would recommend you to get wood shingles.

If you are looking for a more complex look that is more traditional and different than the roofs around you then we would recommend going for the wood shakes.
