Cedar Shingles


Western Red Cedar Shingles are classified as a durable species and because of this durability they are widely favoured by architects and specifiers seeking an aesthetically pleasing, light weight alternative to traditional roof and wall tiles. The Cedar Shingles supplied by Brookridge Timber are 100% clear heartwood, they are 100% vertical grain and they are kiln dried.  Typically, one bundle will cover 2.32m2 with a 125mm exposure


Western Red Cedar Shingles readily accept preservative treatment further preserving shingles against rot and insect attack, in addition, preservative treatment is highly recommended in areas of high humidity, tree proximity and rainfall.  A 30 year warranty will be given with preservative treated shingles


Western Red Cedar Shingles are generally maintenance free but to increase longevity, debris accumulating on the roof should be swept off with a stiff broom.  Installation of a 100mm zinc strip exposed at the ridge will also aid in preventing moss growth
