Residential Shakes, Newport NSW

MLR Slate Roofing are experts in the selection, supply and installation of timber shake roofing like this new Timber Rose She Oak roof.

The owner of this home understands how the textures and unique architectural look that shakes provide will add a dramatic appearance to a home’s exterior.

Although exposed to the coastal weather timber shakes are a natural material that is hardwearing and requires relatively low maintenance.

As you can see in our photos (taken over time) the timber shakes naturally weather to a silver colour. This colour is a major part of its aesthetic appeal.

We finished this project with precision installed stainless steel box gutters and Zinc ridges, and Zinc Standing seam roofing. These are complementary materials which are impervious to the extremely corrosive weather conditions in this location.
