York Valley Cedar Shingles and Cedar Shakes in Ontario

Cedar Shakes

Our cedar shakes give a texture and beauty that no other roofing material can give. At 24” long with a 7/8” butt shakes can be installed with a 8 to 10 inch exposer.
Shakes act as a second layer of insulation resulting in a roof that is cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
A properly installed cedar roof lasts 40+ years and turns a beautiful silvery grey over time.

Grade A Shake

Some minor defects such as small knots.
No black knots in critical areas.

Grade B Shake
