Shake Siding Pictures
Shakes are a type of shingle made from split wood. Traditional shakes have a more rustic or natural look to them than a standard shingle siding because they are more grooved and have less uniformity in shape and size. Traditionally, they cost a bit less than shingles and will last longer because they are often split to be thicker in width.
Shakes are shingles of wood were traditionally split from wood, giving them a grooved and rustic look. Today of course they are made from precision machines that split them and range in width at the butt from ½” – ¾”.
Shakes can either be hand-split or taper-sawn, which looks more like a shingle. Shakes can be either straight or staggered, which really adds a level of rustic country to the look of a home.
Many manufacturers now produce vinyl shake siding, which mimics the look of shakes without the considerable maintenance cost and effort.

Shakes offers the beauty of a natural wood cladding, along with a simple, rustic and attractive appearance. Certainly the look is not for everyone and some homeowners prefer to accent a top triangle section for instance with shakes while using standard lap siding for the rest of the home.
