Wood Shingles

Houston Wood Shingles

Houston Wood Shingles can offer your home a distinctive style, protecting it for 10 years or longer than common asphalt shingles. Wood shingles are generally cut from cedar and other types of wood, tapered to fit tightly in a pattern to protect a home from the weather. Let the roofing experts at Strata Roofing and Construction, Houston, help you achieve the authentic appearance of custom-installed wood shingles for your roof.

Like all other roofing materials, there are advantages and disadvantages of wood shingles to consider.


  • Environmental protection. Cedarwood shingles naturally resist heavy rains, strong winds, hailstorms, ultra-violet rays from the sun, and damage from insects and other pests.
  • Durability. Wood shingles can last 25-35 years, compared to only 15-20 for asphalt shingles.
  • Renewable resource. New trees replace those used to manufacture wooden shingles.
  • Insulation. The natural insulating qualities of wood help cut the energy bills for cooling and heating a home.
  • Improved aesthetics. Wood shingles offer a unique look to your home.

Disadvantages of Wood Shingles:

  • Higher initial cost. Wood shingles are more expensive than asphalt shingles when installed, but their long life makes them cost-effective over the long run.
  • Maintenance concerns. Mold and other growths can grow on wood tiles but can be controlled by proper maintenance.
  • Less fire resistant. Wood burns easier than other roofing materials, but modern wood shingles are treated with a fire retardant.
