Wood Roofing: A Beautiful Alternative
Wood roofing products have been used for centuries and at one time were found on homes of all styles and sizes. Today, wood shakes and shingles are still a popular choice for Kansas City homeowners, thanks to their distinctive, natural appearance.
Historically, wooden roofing products have been known and respected for their longevity and natural beauty. However, wood roofing products have developed a less-than-outstanding reputation over the last 30 years due to the poor quality of wood that has been used by some manufacturers, roofing contractors and home builders.
With more than 20 years of roofing installation experience, Bordner has established relationships with several manufacturers of high-quality wood roofing. Currently, most of the quality wood roofing products in the U.S. actually come from Canadian mills. These excellent wood products and wood roof systems can be properly installed to serve you for 20-30 years or more.

Choosing the Right Wood Roofing Material for your Kansas City Home
The primary styles found in wood products are shakes and shingles. Shingles are thinner, smooth cut, and provide a neat and consistent appearance. Shakes are thicker, often hand-split on the face (showing the wood grain) and installed with longer exposures – all of which results in a rougher and more rustic appearance. In general, shakes may actually be less expensive and last longer.
When evaluating quality - the vertical grain is as important as the thickness. Wood roofing products are also available with pressure treatments for fungus prevention and fire retardance.
