Cedar Shakes and Shingles
Cedar Shakes are taken from blocks of Red Cedar wood that are split. Typically they are chosen because no two pieces are exactly the same. Many times they are selected for having the appearance of being rustic. If you’re looking for that, “little mountain cottage cabin retreat”, then cedar shakes are the best bet.
Cedar Shingles come from blocks of Red Cedar wood that has been sawn into shingles. They have a smooth property to them and come in a sanded or sawn form. While the sawn version is more common, the sanded type is more refined and has a less textured finish.
