As far as I can tell, in terms of visual appeal, nearly everyone (myself included) seems to like the appearance of wood shake roofing best. The natural beauty and textures of wood have long made this a popular roofing product.

That's the good news. The bad news is that the quality of wood available has declined, the cost has gone way up, and the fire hazards of wood roofing have made it virtually illegal to install in much of California. Typically when we replace a wood roof now, it's re-roofed with a composite shingle product (of which there some nice styles available).
