Welcome to Mr. Shingles website, your fast and reliable roofing service provider!
One of the oldest roofing materials in the world, wood roof shingles date back to the first European settlers in Australia. The traditional shingle roof was made from split timber and is about 100mm and 450mm long. Wood shingle roofs were very popular back then when labour was cheap and trees were free.
Wood shingle roofing isn’t as popular today but it still has a loyal following in cities and towns across Australia. Although roof shingles are available in other materials such as slate, and asphalt, wood shingle has a distinct and classic look and feel that is hard to reproduce using other products.

Shingles and shakes can be classified into two groups, hardwood or softwood. Hardwood species can be Yellow Stringybark, White Mahogany, Bloodwood, Iron Bark or Forest Oak. Softwood is typically Western Red Cedar. A shingle is a sawn piece of timber and therefore a uniform finish where a shake is split and is more rustic.

Timber shingles do not only provide an elegant and durable roofing solution but also help tackle climate change in a number of ways. Timber shingles take less energy to make. The amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced in the manufacture of timber products is far less than other common building materials, such as steel and concrete. Wood also stores carbon until it decays or is burned.
