Menlo Park, CA Roofing Expert: Tips for Longer-Lasting Wood Shingles
Wooden shingles have been around for centuries. Favored for their rustic appearance, wooden shingles could come from a variety of tree species with colors ranging from red to brown, complementing different architectural styles. Although many people choose wooden shingles primarily for their aesthetic appeal, wooden shingles also offer greater value compared to other roofing materials, in terms of installation and environmental-friendliness. Since wooden shingles are lightweight, they exert less pressure on your roofing system’s support structures. They are also pretty easy to install, repair and maintain. Wooden shingles pose no pollution threat since they are made of natural materials. You can even recycle them once they near the end of their life span. In addition, wooden shingles still deliver superior performance even in areas frequented by high winds and hail storms such as California.
