Oak Shingles

French Oak Shingles are 13" long with each crate containing a random mixture of widths 3"- 6", the thicknesses are 20mm tapered to 10mm (All sizes are approx) and each shingle has a pre-applied hanging staple. Each crate contains approx 6/m2. Oak is extremely hard wearing and resilient timber which makes it an ideal timber for roofing shingles.

Technical data guide

Fixings required – 50mm Stainless Steel Annular Ring Shank Nails, copper or bronze can be used. Mild steel should be avoided as this will react with the natural tannins in the Oak.
