JB Western Red Cedar Shingles and Shakes from Marley Eternit are a truly renewable and sustainable roofing and cladding material, with one of the lowest carbon footprints of any widely used building product. They are light to transport yet durable and offer a high degree of thermal insulation.
Shingles and Shakes have been used for a wide range of structures from simple garden gazebos, to domestic dwellings, to major theme parks. Shingles and Shakes perform the same functions but are manufactured in different ways.
A Shingle is produced by sawing a block of wood on both sides, giving a relatively smooth face and back.
A Shake is hand split from a block of cedar along the natural grain of the wood and then re-sawn to produce one smooth surface.
They can be used for both roofing and cladding. Cedar Shingles can be fixed to pitches as low as 14 degrees.from Kavanagh Roofing Please enquire
