Eastern white cedar shingles are classified by grades A, B, C, and D. Eastern white cedar “A” grades have no imperfections, whereas the “B” grade has imperfections above the bottom 6” but are not on the exposed face. Once “B” grade eastern white cedar shingles are installed, it is hard to tell the difference between “A” and “B” grades.
When it comes to western red cedar shingles, they are classified by “class 1” or “class 2.” Class 1 western red cedar shingles have no imperfections, whereas class 2 does have some imperfections.
Here at Cedar Shingles Direct, we only carry eastern white cedar shingles in “A” and “B” grades – we do not order or carry “C” and “D” grades. As for western red cedar shingles, we only carry “class 1.”
