Wood Shingles

wood shinglesIn the old days, a wood roof was almost the only option available to homeowners. Today, they’re considered a unique, higher-end option that will add a rustic element to your home’s style. Wood shingles in Wichita are a classic yet durable roofing solution for our climate.

Wood roofs come in two types: shingles and shakes. What’s the difference? Shingles are cut by a machine and are tapered at the ends, providing a uniform appearance. Shakes, on the other hand, are split by hand on one side so they don’t line up as neatly. Both can be made with different types of wood, but the most common is cedar. Some people prefer the look of shake, while others like shingles.

Whatever your choice, wood roofing can be a very practical, aesthetically pleasing option. If you’re looking for wood shingles in Wichita, call Dolphin Construction & Remodeling, LLC to discuss your options. Wood shakes and shingles can last as long as asphalt in some cases, so they’re a sound choice to consider. Put us to work for you!

Shakes and Shingles 101

wood shinglesWood roofing is a bit trickier to install than other roof types, including asphalt. This naturally means that the wood option can be more expensive. Still, it’s generally great in stormy weather conditions and can last a long time. It’s also a very “green” choice; when the roof has finally worn out, it will simply be ground up into mulch.

If you’re concerned about rotting or fire damage with a wood roof, there are ways to treat a wood roof from being affected by either of these problems.
