your cedar shake roof, the Number 1 Tapersawn
shakes are like shingles but the cut is thicker
and both faces are sawn. Your cedar shake roof
will have the naturally tailored look of a shingle
but is complimented by the sharp shadow line
caused by the thicker butt. The Tapersawn is
the most popular wood roof in the West Coast
of British Columbias and is rapidly growing
in popularity in the rest of Canada and the
USA. It is cut from clear heartwood, with no
defects. This cedar shake is 5/8" or 3/4" thick
at the butt and is cut in two lengths - 18"
and 24". On 4/12 or steeper pitched roofs, it
is applied at 7 1/2" for an 18" board and 10"
for a 24" board. For all your natural roofing
