Tapersawn cedar shakes

Tapersawn cedar Shakes

Tapersawn shakes are sawn on both sides.

  • Just like handsplit and resawn shakes they are available in a #1 grade which allows a minimum of 80% edgegrain and maximum of 20% flatgrain or a #1 premium grade which must be 100% edgegrain.
  • Available in 18 or 24 inch lengths and thicknesses from 5/8 inch to 1 1/8 inch.
  • The exposure to the weather varies with each length or desired architectural appearance.
  • Tapersawn shakes can offer a thicker shadow line than a shingle, while still enhancing a tailored, smooth style.
  • When producing tapersawn shakes it is easy to hide defects such as knot shadows and flatgrain. Unfortunately some manufacturers allow these types of defects.
