Generally shingles are made from Cedar, Oak or Chestnut. They can be used vertically or pitched at 19° and above. Shingles are produced from blocks of wood sawn on both faces. Shakes are hand split along the grain, giving a rougher surface finish.
Shingles and shakes can be used as a roofing andexternal wall cladding material. The material is laid similarly to how natural slate is laid on a roof in courses starting from the lowest point. The shingles are held into place with silicon bronze metal nails.
