Shake Roofing



The orginal Northwest roofing material and, to many homeowners, still the best. We at Jorve, dissatisfied with the diminishing quality of most cedar roofing currently on the market, contracted with a cedar mill that was able to provide us (exclusively) with shakes and shingles that met our higher standards. The result is a roof that is beautiful, long-lasting and nearly maintenance free.

Your roof is probably the most critical system protecting your home from the elements. At Jorve, we offer a complete array of roofing solutions. Click your cursor on the illustrations above to learn more about the advantages of each material.

Wood shakes offer a natural look with a lot of character. Because of variations like color, width, thickness, or cut of the wood, no two shake roofs will ever be the same. Generally, a shingle is sawn on both sides and is thinner at the back than a shake. A shake is typically split on one or both sides. Wood offers some energy benefits, too: it helps to insulate the attic, and it allows the house to breathe, circulating air through the small openings under the felt rows on which wooden shingles are laid. Jorve Roofing uses the finest quality Cedar Shakes available.
