With quality being so vital to us, we don’t just wait for visits from independent outside inspectors. Our in-house inspectors are constantly examining both products and process to guarantee that you get the most for your money. After all, you are our most important inspector!

Tapersawn Shakes are sawn on both sides

 

  • Just like handsplit and resawn shakes they are available in a #1 grade which allows a minimum of 80% edgegrain and maximum of 20% flatgrain or a #1 premium grade which must be 100% edgegrain.
  • Available in 18 or 24 inch lengths and thicknesses from 5/8 inch to 1 1/8 inch.
  • The exposure to the weather varies with each length or desired architectural appearance.
  • Tapersawn shakes can offer a thicker shadow line than a shingle, while still enhancing a tailored, smooth style.
  • When producing tapersawn shakes it is easy to hide defects such as knot shadows and flatgrain. Unfortunately some manufacturers allow these types of defects.
