What is the difference between a Shake and Shingle?

*  Generally, a shingle is sawn on both sides and is thinner at the butt than a shake. A shake is typically split on one or both sides. There are important exceptions to this, (tapersawn shakes = shakes sawn on both sides) depending on the specific manufacturing method and the dimensions of a specific product. Shakes are still manufactured by hand, but most are now made using powered equipment. Shakes are made by taking the wood straight split from the block, and sawing it end-to-end at an angle. This creates a shake which is sawn on one side and split on the other, often called a “handsplit and resawn” product. Medium shakes are shakes that measure nominal ½” at the butt. Heavy Shakes are shakes that measure nominal ¾” at the butt.

What is a Composition roof?

The most widely used roofing material is the composition shingle. Commonly known as asphalt shingles, they come in two types, differentiated by the base material. They consist of either an organic fiber mat or fiberglass core. Each type is impregnated with asphalt and coated with mineral granules to add color and texture. An adhesive back combined with nails, tacks or staples is the fastening method used. You will most likely find a “good/better/best” selection. Compare warranties (number of years the roof should last) when shopping. Shingles are available in the common 3-tab style or newer architectural designs that replicate other roofing materials such as wood or slate.

What is a slate roof?

A slate roof is a roof made from slate, a type of metamorphic rock which is highly durable, making it very suitable for roofing. It is most common to see slate roofs in regions where slate is naturally abundant, although slate shingles can also be shipped to other regions of the world. Like other types of roofing, slate has both advantages and disadvantages which should be considered before installing or repairing a slate roof.
