Benefits of Prefinished Cedar Shingles
Only the Best Cedar
We produce only the best products. Eastern white cedar shingles are graded A, B, C, D. A grade has no imperfections, B has some above 6". It's hard to tell A and B apart once installed. Western red cedar shingles have class 1 (no imperfections) and class 2 (some imperfections). We stock A and B grades for eastern white cedar and only class 1 for western red cedar. Quality matters.

What the Experts Are Saying;
“Priming or prefinishing cedar products before it is installed, can provide extra protection and often prevent adhesion problems and premature finish failure…Prefinishing is recommended in all circumstances.”Western Wood Products Association
“Backprimed wood resists absorbing moisture from the back that can cause the finish to blister and peel. Some of our first backprimed cedar projects still sport their original finish and after nearly seven years still look like new.”Fine Home Building Magazine
