Roof Shakes


What is a roof shake?
A shake is typ­i­cal­ly described as a wood­en shin­gle that is made from split logs.  When these are used for cov­er­ing the top of a house, the result is a shake roof.  Nat­ur­al wood roof shakes can be very expen­sive.

What are the advan­tages of asphalt shin­gles ver­sus nat­ur­al wood roof shakes?
Cer­tain­Teed man­u­fac­tures pre­mi­um asphalt roof­ing shin­gles such as Pres­i­den­tial Shake™ that pro­vide the look of cedar roof shakes but with the per­for­mance of fiber glass con­struc­tion.  Unlike wood, these roof­ing shin­gles will not rot or decay, and they offer excel­lent wind and fire resis­tance.  They typ­i­cal­ly cost a frac­tion of nat­ur­al wood roof shakes, yet the asphalt roof­ing shin­gles repli­cate the shade, tex­ture and rus­tic design of nat­ur­al wood roof shakes.

Inde­pen­dence™ is also an asphalt roof­ing shin­gle Cer­tain­Teed man­u­fac­tures to mim­ic a roof shake appear­ance.  It fea­tures a one-piece full-size base shin­gle, ran­dom lam­i­nat­ed tabs and deep shad­ow lines for a dra­mat­ic, dimen­sion­al appear­ance sim­i­lar to roof shakes.  Asphalt shin­gles designed to look like roof shakes typ­i­cal­ly have improved war­ran­ty pro­tec­tions as well com­bin­ing aes­thet­ics and design with increased func­tion­al­i­ty.



Mis­sion State­ment: Our objec­tive is to pro­vide our cus­tomers with the high­est qual­i­ty roof­ing, sid­ing, win­dows, gut­ters, and entry door work in the North­ern Vir­ginia & Mary­land areas by offer­ing expe­ri­ence, effi­cien­cy, high qual­i­ty prod­ucts, cus­tomized projects, and the best cus­tomer ser­vice. Our goal is 100% cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion.

Vision State­ment: Our vision is to be the best roof­ing, sid­ing, win­dows, gut­ters, and entry door replace­ment com­pa­ny in the North­ern Vir­ginia and Mary­land area. Our vision is cen­tered on the cus­tomers’ needs and vision of their home.

Core Val­ues: Our moti­va­tion in each project is direct­ed from our core val­ues. Each core val­ue is cen­tered on the cus­tomer and includes: old time val­ues, con­cern for the cus­tomer, offer­ing the cus­tomer the best prod­ucts, and giv­ing the cus­tomer the best price for the high qual­i­ty prod­ucts.
