Cedar Shake Siding Cost in 2020
Western Red Cedar trees are well known for their great heights, huge trunk diameters and in turn being decay resistant. All this makes for one of the more durable home siding options with unmatched natural beauty.
Besides Western Red Cedar, Northern White Cedar provides the lumber that are transformed, by sawmills, into shake. It used to be shakes were axe cut by hand and shingles were the lumber that went the route of saw mill cutting. Not anymore. For the most part, all cedar shakes are produced using power equipment.
Much of milling is concerned with grade of wood, where knots and blemishes come into play. Clear grades are considered premium.
For the most part, all shake siding makes use of clear grade. Though if going with a double layer on the home, a lesser grade may be used underneath, as it presumably has no exposure.
You can expect to pay more for Royal lengths, while realizing you’ll need more of Perfection cuts to cover the same area.
The two major factors that drive style for shake are the color and bottom edge, also known as butt-end, appearance.
Color comes primarily from type of tree, so light (from white cedar) or dark (from red cedar). The thickness, along with other design patterns, comes from the way it is cut.
Another distinction between shingles and shake is the thickness of the lower edge. Usually for shingle it stays uniform at 3/8th an inch. With shake, it ranges from half an inch to 7/8ths. Hand-split shake pieces would sometimes exceed thicknesses of 1 inch.
The most common variation of cedar shake appears as all flat bottom edges, which produces well defined horizontal lines.
Staggered patterns characteristically go away from this uniform approach. They always appear as bottom edges that don’t align. And routinely have widths that are not exactly the same as shakes that surround it.
Then comes the variations with the bottom edge. Again, straight across, or square, is the most common.
But, the options include round, fish scale, pointed, diagonal, octagonal and arrow. These fancy cuts usually mean a higher price for the material, but buying in bulk is the way to keep costs down.
Finally, there is staining, or painting the shake material. Clear stains retain the natural beauty, while adding protective coating to ward of insects or make the material more resistant to fire.
