Tapersawn Shake

Definition

A cross between a shingle and a hand-split wood shake (a flat piece of rugged wooden construction material having at least one face that is grain-split).

Things you need to know

Tapersawn shakes resemble shingles in their uniform appearance (both faces and all edges are sawn). However, they are thicker than shingles and have a heavier shadow line.

Also known as

Flat Sawn Shake

Cost Considerations

Generally speaking, a tapersawn shake roof runs between $5 and $9 per square foot.

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
