Shake Roof in Atlanta, Macon, Charleston, Charlotte, Columbia, Raleigh, Savannah & Throughout the Southeast

Cedar Shake RoofA shake roof is a great way to create mood through architecture. It gives a building a rustic appearance, an echo of the historical roofs that once dotted the landscape of Colonial America. It’s not all about roofing aesthetics, though – cedar shake also is a great way to keep your home cooler in the summer, which translates into lower energy costs. And Howe Roofs is here to help you achieve that combination of classic style and value.

What, exactly, is a shake roof? You’ve probably seen them, even if you didn’t know it. Unlike its cousin, the cedar shingle, a cedar shake is not sawn into an even geometric shape – it’s split to reveal the natural wood grain. And even though other wood, such as pine, is used for shake in Europe, the primary wood used in the United States is cedar. For those who seek a distinct alternative to the standard asphalt shingle or tile roof, a shake roof is a great way to put the finishing touch on many types of commercial or residential buildings, including:

• A beach cottage in Charleston
• A cabin in the woods outside Macon
• A golf course “snack shack” in Charlotte
• A seafood restaurant in Savannah
• A barbecue restaurant in Raleigh
• A lodge in Columbia
• A guest house in Atlanta
