Thin, tapering pieces of wood known as wood shingles are typically used to cover roofs and walls of buildings in order to shield them from the elements. Shakes, another name for shingles, were traditionally separated from straight-grained, knotless bolts of wood.
Shingles are currently primarily formed by cutting, which sets them apart from shakes, which are created by splitting a bolt. Different regions have distinctive shingle patterns because to differences in size, shape, and application technique.
Each building has a unique personality thanks to special finishing touches like sweeping valleys, combed ridges, ornate butt ends, and decorative patterns. Additionally, wood shingles can be bent using steam to provide distinctive roof features and shapes that resemble thatch.
A rectangle measuring around 16 inches in length is the simplest shape for a wood shingle. The butt and sides are frequently out of square; the butt may not be parallel to the sides.
The terms “rebutted and re-squared” or “rebutted and re-joined” shingles, frequently abbreviated as “R&R,” refer to shingles that have undergone processing to make the butt square to the sides. Shakes and shingles can be straight, split, sawn, tapered, or any combination of these, with the exception of straight-tapered.
As well as varying lengths and installation techniques, different wood species and qualities are used. Additionally, wood preservatives and fire retardants may be applied to shakes and shingles before or after installation.
