The wood-like appeal of Shake roof tile makes it a natural choice to recreate the charm of turn-of-the-century America. Shake roof tile richly replicates the natural beauty of a real wood shake with its rough-hewn top surface, ragged edges and rugged butts, but with the peace of mind of a Class-A fire rating. Each custom-crafted tile is raked in even strokes or brushed in an uneven pattern to impart the natural depth, distinction and shadows of real wood. Shake tile is often laid in a staggered pattern, a technique perfected by Vande Hey Raleigh. Staggered patterns are available for other flat tile styles, such as Slate, Brushed and Cotswold Stone.
"This is a tile that is specifically developed for cold weather, and is well suited to the harsh New Jersey coast; which see extremes from over one hundred degrees to well below zero. Also, the nature of the tile molds and production is such that Vande Hey tiles have a much more natural and organic style and feel than the other concrete tile products I've used."
