Real Cedar shingle siding and cedar shake siding are two great cedar siding products for setting your beloved home apart from all the indistinguishable and uninspired facades on your block. With Real Cedar shingle siding, you get a look that is beautiful and timeless. In addition, Real Cedar shingles and shakes get better with age as the warm undertones mature into a beautiful lustrous grey patina.

Shakes vs Shingles

Cedar shakes and shingles are similar wood siding products, but there are some differences between the two house sidings. For instance, cedar shingles are generally sawn on both sides, while shakes are typically split on one or both sides. Wood shingles are more precisely milled than shake siding. Shakes are more irregular, and don’t lay as flat when installed. Cedar shake is also thicker than shingle siding, ranging from 1/2” to 3/4” or greater at the butt end, while wooden shingles range from about 3/8” to 1/2”.
