Tapersawn Cedar Shakes | Direct Cedar Supplies is a major world supplier of cedar shake and shingle roofing and Tapersawn Shakes. We are a red cedar shakes manufacturer.
Our western red cedar tapersawn shakes fall between resawn shakes and cedar shingles. Although it is sawn on both sides, it is thicker, less precise, and has a stronger shadowline than a cedar shingle.
Tapersawn shakes have the appearance of the smooth faced shingle, but the extra thickness of the shake, allowing for the same installation procedures and exposures of the shake, provided felt underlayment paper is used as is for shakes. Produced by sawing both faces on shingle or taper saw machines, the taper is achieved by the mechanical angle setting of the machinery relative to the saw blade for each cut.
