Oak shingles offer a finishing touch to a roof of a house, extension or even a porch. They are made with high quality green oak timber from Europe. We can also offer cedar shingles if this wood is more in keeping with your home.
Oak shingles are a traditional roofing material and have decorated roofs of houses and other buildings for generations. Now, you can add shingles to the oak framed kits we offer as well as to any other structure. Oak is recognised for its natural insulating properties to help keep heat within a building. It’s also resistant to the weather. Once in place, an oak shingle roof will be durable and stable, with little causing an impact on it.
To create the oak shingles, we use ‘merranderie’ where we hand split oak that is used for barrel manufacture to instead create the shingles. All our shingles are made without the use of chemical treatments allowing the wood to soften to a silver grey colour once in place on the roof.
