Roofing Force Offers Metal, Concrete, And Composite Roofing Materials In A Wood Shake Look 

Wood Shake Style

Real wood shake shingles have been used on homes for a very long time but they do not hold up as well as modern roofing products, are easily destroyed by hailstones, and pose a fire hazard. Thus, real wood shakes have declined in popularity over the past several decades, and today, many insurance companies will not insure buildings with real wood shake roofing. However, homeowners still can obtain this same timeless look through a variety of state-of-the-art stone coated steel, composite, and concrete products. Nevertheless, we aim to please, and we can install real wood shakes according to a customer's need. Our roofing experts in Kansas and Missouri are happy to help you find the right product with the right look for your home. Give us a call today at (913) 270-5667.
