Within our three profiles, one stands out as the more popular and economical choice for the average home (minimum slope 3/12 – 14 degrees). This is the Ironwood Shake profile. This profile is installed directly onto either a solid sheeted deck or partially filled in skip sheathing. It can be installed directly over asphalt as well. It is an interlocking system with hidden fasteners and is less costly and easier to install than our other two profiles. Our Ironwood Shake profile was made to resemble cedar shakes and is available in a variety of colour choices.
