Western red cedar shingles are an excellent value and quite simply belong on certain fine older homes. Cedar shingle siding is charming, tasteful, as well as a great investment because of its longevity. We routinely replace 80 year-old cedar shakes to restore the home’s character and protect its walls into the next century.
There’s a reason why other materials are made to simulate the appearance of real cedar shingle siding – their mimicry speaks volumes about its aesthetics. Cedar shingles start with a bright honey-cinnamon color and gradually transform into a grey weathered wood tone. As with any natural wood product, cedar shingle siding can be stained or painted to change the appearance. Wood shingles are individual overlapping pieces mostly commonly sized in random widths. These enhance entire homes or are great to accentuate dormers. We also do a fair amount of fish scales (scallops), particularly as gable accents.
