Scandulae : shingles for wooden roofs

  The traditional handsplit wood shingles offer a high weatherproof resistance (UV, winds, hails, storms, frosts) and an unexpectedly long life.

They can cover any roof types, sizes and structures (simple or complex), and with very few zincware (hooks and nails).

The wood shingles have a bright grey colour that fit in all landscapes. They can used for either traditional or modern style houses and buildings.

Our special feature : the handsplit wood

From the timber to the shingles, we only use high quality wood (without knots).

The trees are cut down during the vegetal rest and we split manually the quarters to obtain each shingle as hard, waterproof and straight as possible.

The traditional handsplit wood shingles are the only material agreed by the new French professional rules : tearing and sawing don't respect this new rules.
