Western Red Cedar Shingles

A true “green” choice in roofing and sidewall applications.

Western Red Cedar Shingles offer a warm and natural look for any project.  They are durable and light weight and Nu-Forest keeps three options for your consideration.


Perfection shingles

Perfection shingles are 18” in length and are 100% VG-edge grain.  They are sawn on both side giving you a smooth uniformed finish.  A bundle of #1 Perfection shingles will cover 25 square feet based on a 5-1/2” exposure and are intended for a primary roof or sidewalls.  A #2 Perfection Shingle allows for limited defects and can include flat grain.  It is recommended to reduce the exposure of 4-1/2”so you would be getting 20 square feet per bundle.  These are intended for secondary roofs or sidewall applications.

5X Shingles

The same look and appeal of the Perfection; but 16” in length.  These #1 5X are again for primary roofs or sidewalls with the difference being 25 square feet per bundle at a 5” exposure for a different look.

Please view our Benjamin Obdyke products page for information on Cedar Breather, Home Slicker, Roll Vent, and Rapid Ridge for your best ventilation options.
