Cedar Shake Sheds

What are Cedar Shake Sheds?

Cedar shake sheds are simply sheds constructed with cedar shakes. With these sheds, instead of vinyl siding, James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding, or your other more standard options, cedar shakes are used for the siding. 

Though they are both the same material, cedar shakes are not to be confused with cedar shingles. While cedar shingles have a more smooth, uniform look and are a bit thinner, cedar shakes are thicker and more rugged, as they are split off rather than sawn smooth.

Why Cedar Shake Sheds?

Ultimately, cedar shake sheds offer a variety of benefits, such as enhanced durability, and, depending on your preferred style, a better appearance than other sheds. We use faux cedar shake which is more affordable and less labor intensive, but still provides the same benefits as real cedar shake. Some of the benefits of cedar shake sheds are:

Incredibly Easy Maintenance

If you’re already short on time and don’t need another thing to maintain, cedar shake sheds might be ideal for you. Cedar has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties, meaning you can leave it untreated without having to worry about rotting, cracking, or excessive warping. Cedar also naturally repels insects and dries quickly, so you also won’t have to worry about insect or water damage. A little bit of maintenance is required if you choose to stain your cedar siding, as you’ll have to re-stain it every so often. But, it’s still ultimately very easy to maintain. Of course, an annual pressure washing is also recommended to lengthen the lifespan of it’s beautiful appearance, but it’s certainly not required. 

Enhanced Durability

Cedar shakes are much thicker than other siding options and are made from premium grade wood, making it much more durable than other options. Cedar shakes also typically last much longer than other choices, like cedar siding, due to its’ thickness and natural protective properties. 

Enhanced Natural Insulation

Unlike many other siding materials, cedar is a low-density softwood. All this means is that it’s not only great for construction, but a wonderful insulator. Due to the density of the wood, less air can transport through it. This keeps less heat from escaping in the winter and cool air from escaping in the summer, providing natural insulation. 

Unique, Beautiful Appearance & Pleasant Aroma

Although cedar shake sheds offer a ton of more practical benefits, lots of individuals choose them because of their unique appearance and pleasant aroma. Cedar is a very warm wood, which provides a natural, more rustic look that blends in seamlessly with the environment. Whether unfinished and unstained or stained and painted, it offers a pleasing, perceptible grain that adds an appealing texture to your yard. Cedar shake sheds also offer a unique, warm, earthy smell that many love.
