Larch shingle

Our manufacture of wooden cleaved shingles is carried out in a traditional way, i.e., by cleaving larch wood, which is cut mostly in winter. Timber with dense tree rings that are slightly left curved is selected and the shingles are then shaped by a drawknife, stacked up and left to dry slowly. After drying out, they are stacked into packages.

We produce shingles in the lengths of 20 cm, 30 cm, 40 cm, 50 cm and according to individual requirements also 70 or 80 cm.

This material is an original natural covering, made of preselected larch wood that is hand processed. Physical properties of the larch wood and a natural content of resinous substances provide this covering with a lifespan of up to 80 years, without any impregnation or coating. Larch shingle is a material that was used for historic buildings, churches, chapels and other significant structures. Nowadays it is being used for facades or roof coverings of modern private houses.

The technology of covering is 3x for 1 m2 of surface area. Thanks to that, both flat and corrugated surfaces can be created, including hips, valleys and other roof elements.

Price offers are calculated individually according to the supplied specification.
