Roofing & siding

Cedar shakes and shingles

Using cedar as a material for a home’s exterior creates a distinct, rustic, highly sought-after look. We offer both cedar shakes and cedar shingles. Used mainly for roofs, the cedar shakes are hand-cut, making each piece unique. That’s what makes a cedar shake roof look so perfectly imperfect and undeniably rustic. The cedar shingles still create that same style, but in a more uniform manner. Each piece has a consistent and even thickness, and therefore can be used for roofing and siding. 

What a lovely, friendly place. I just needed one small item, and everyone in the store was so helpful even though it was in the middle of their deck show. They had free hot dogs and hamburgers for everyone to boot. It is the go-to place for hardware, wood, and advice on how to do a job.
