From the Architect’s Corner – Vertical Applications

Cedar roof shingles are commonly used as siding and on mansard roofs. But with the shake look comes those pesky bugs, broken shakes (after even small hail or wind storms), and maintenance to keep them from looking in disarray. In working with architects, I see all kinds of photos or renderings of homes where a portion of where their clients want to tile is essentially a vertical wall. What we offer is the look of shake, but with little or no maintenance and will last 50 years. Pictured below is a mansard roof where they used Bellaforté Shake in the Mountain VariBlend.

Happy Friday, Architects!
