Unmatched beauty. Although there are some maintenance challenges, it's hard to beat the appearance of wood shingles.
Wood is another common material for residential shingled roofs. Wood shingles have a beautiful finished appearance and generally provide very good durability.

Either option can be used depending on the look you want to achieve and the style of your home.
While wood shingles and shakes are a great roofing material, there are a couple drawbacks. These roofs can be expensive to install, and they will require more maintenance than an asphalt shingle roof. However, the benefits of wood shingles still make them a popular choice -- especially for historic homes.
