Description

Cedar Wood Shingles Blue Label No.1 Grade Western Red

Blue Label shingles are 100% heartwood and edge grain so the grade will not allow for knots or sapwood, and can be used on all roof and vertical applications.

These are highly durable Grade 1 Western Red Cedar shingles from Canada, where they have been used as an exterior building material for centuries particuarly for roofing applications.

After being cut from the block of Cedar each shingle is trimmed to create square corners and graded according to visual features.

Timber offcuts are converted into mulch which is used by gardeners and landscape architects.

Its naturally occuring preservatives make Western Red Cedar resistant to fungal, insect and moisture decay which can be enhanced by extra chemical treatment.

These shingles are manufactured from cedar logs harvested from renewable well managed Canadian forests, which may allow re-harvesting in as few as 50 years.

Western Red Cedar has a fine even grain, low density and light weight making it easy to work. The wood has a characteristic pleasing spicy aroma.

Cedar shingles are used on domestic dwellings and public buildings. They are ideal for chalets, sheds, summerhouses, animal shelters and mobile homes as well as conventional dwellings.
