Hand-Split Shake Roof in Kitsilano

We replaced a tired old cedar shake roof with a new state-of-the-art hand split heavy shake roof. We use environmentally friendly sourced cedar, and only use premium grade 100% edge-grain wood which is exceptionally resistant towards cupping, curling and shrinking over the lifespan. The shakes used on this roof were exceptionally thick at 3/4″, and were hand-split for maximum longevity. This roof is expected to last 50 years, unlike most cedar installed in Vancouver which barely sees a 20 year lifespan!
