24" Tapersawn Shakes
Custom Shingles’ 24” Tapersawn products are sawn on both sides for a semi-textured look that has more in common with shingles than conventional shakes. However, like shakes, they have a strong shadowline and are installed with a felt overlay placed between courses. Use them in any project where a balance between rustic and refined is sought — our Tapersawn shakes are a popular choice in vacation homes, villas, cottages and other luxury properties.
24in Tapersawn shakes are a minimum 4” wide and range in thickness from ⅝" to 1-½". Our product is made from premium-grade Western Red Cedar, and consists of 100% edge grain, clear heartwood with no defects. Western Red Cedar, one of the most abundant Cedar species on the planet, offers excellent natural resistance to moisture and decay. As a result, it’s a great choice for roofs and siding in any climate.
