Timber shingle and shake roofs

Cedar roof shingles and shakes are renowned for their insulation qualities, dimensional stability and natural resistance to the elements. Cedar roof shingles contain a natural preservative making them uncommonly durable in their natural state.

The way a timber shingle roof is installed is very similar to installing a slate roof, that is why The Slate Roofing Company, Sydney are your perfect choice for your timber shingle roof installation.

Timber has always been one of nature’s more versatile and attractive materials. Rich in colour, western red shingles and shakes give any building a touch of individuality. Shingles and shakes are ideal for both traditional and modern structures. All of the imported cedar shingles and shakes we use are from Canada and the USA, where strict reforestation and forest management ensure the sustainability of a forest and its surrounding habitat.
