Shakes Versus Shingles
Commonly the term 'Shake' and 'Shingle' are used interchangeably, or the term 'Shingle' seems to mean either one but this is not actually the case. The difference between a shake and a shingle has to do with how they are made.
A Shake is typically split on one or both sides and are commonly still made by hand, although most are made using power equipment.
A Shingle is sawn on both sides and is typically thinner at the butt than a Shake.
