A wooden shingle is also known as a shake. Historically they were just cut pieces of wood, typically from hand split wood. Today they are still cut pieces of wood, but are thicker than can be found on historic wood shake buildings. They are used for their historic, rustic and aesthetic qualities.
Wood shingles and shakes can last a long time, or not long at all. This is very dependent on the amount of attention spent on maintaining the roofing system. While being the most attractive roofing material, it is also either raw or chemically treated wood. Wood will not hold up well to the elements with out some help. With no upkeep, a wood shake roof system may only last 10-15 years. However, if a good species of wood is chosen, such as cedar, it can last much longer. Consider adding attic ventilation when choosing a wood shake roof, as this is known to reduce moisture and increase the life of the roof. Also, proper installation is paramount in having long lasting wood shake roofing. This is probably the biggest single factor in the life of your roof. And don't forget keeping the roof free of debris, and having the wood shingle roof inspected and maintained by DNA Roofing.
