Hand-split wood shakes have been used to roof American homes for centuries, and they are still widely chosen for their character, charm, and beauty. They have always presented undeniable drawbacks as a roofing solution, however. Especially if their beauty is to be maintained, wood shakes require ongoing maintenance of cleaning and chemical treatments. And, all the while, they still pose a serious fire risk to your home. A wind-blown ember, whether from a chimney or wildfire, can easily ignite a wood shake roof.
In the early 1970’s, Alcoa Building Products set out to engineer a product that combined the allure of traditional shakes with the unlimited benefits of metal. Classic Metal Roofing Systems acquired the resulting product line from Alcoa in 1996 and now, for almost forty years, Country Manor Shake has provided an ideal roofing solution for thousands of homeowners across the globe. This unique product allows homeowners to achieve the look of authentic hand-split shakes while at the same time investing in a lifetime roofing solution.
