Wood Shake Roofing (also known as Cedar Shake) is ideal for use in coastal communities, as they are designed and installed in a way that can withstand the high winds and severe weather that are common associated with hurricanes.

Cedar shake roofing can be hand-split for a rougher, unfinished appearance, or machine-split for an even and more uniform look. Walker Company, Inc. only uses pressure treated Cedar shake roofing material, which enhances the lifetime of the roof and makes it more resistant to moisture.

While wood shake roofs cost a little more than traditional asphalt roofing shingles, the durability and lifetime of Wood Shake makes that cost difference negligible over the life of the roof.  Additionally, Wood Shake roofing can give your home a unique character, which can improve your home’s overall value.
