Tapersawn Shakes

Western Red Cedar Tapersawn Shakes are sawn on both sides giving it a look similar to a sawn shingle but with a thicker appearance, This is different than Hand-split cedar shakes because hand-split shakes are only sawn on one side. Tapersawn Shakes are known for their smooth uniform look compared to the rustic look of hand-split shakes. The added thickness enables it to be applied as a shake (2 ply with paper/felt interlay) resulting in lower application costs.

All Tapersawn Shakes come in 18” and 24” lengths with a butt thickness of 5/8”, 3/4”, 7/8”, 1”.
