Wood shingles are suitable for customers who like to have a natural wood-like appearance for your roof. Options include reclaimed wood if you want a more environment-friendly option. Usually, wood shingles are more prevalent among resorts that want a more “exotic” look. Wood shingles in Malaysia are usually made from Belian wood, also known as Borneo ironwood, so they are commonly called Belian shingles. On average, they can last at least 30 years. Higher wood quality can even last up to 80 years.
