Western Red and Yellow Cedar are the consumers best choice for a renewable material that is often imitated by non natural products. Man made imitations try but cannot compare to the natural beauty, warmth, longevity and versatility of cedar.
All of our products are first kiln dried then rebutted and re-edged (R&R). This process gives all of the shingles a uniform length and parallel edges. There are also options for non R&R products. Non R&R shingles and shakes are kiln dried and left as they are from the milling process. Lengths vary up to 2" and the edges are parallel up to 1/4" on shingles and 1/2" on shakes.
