Wood Shake or Composite Roofing

A wood shake or shingle roof is constructed using thin, tapered pieces of wood that are fitted together. Popular in North American homes, wood shake roofing can be used to create a variety of patterns. The wooden shingles are available in a number of sizes and shapes to create unique characteristics. Composite materials like reinforced plastics or polymer materials and fiberglass are also used for roofing materials. Metal and ceramic composites as well as asphalt are also used for roof panels. Composite roofing is also available in many colors and styles, although they are most used for industrial or commercial properties.
