At a glance

  • No. 3 grade black label shingles
  • Recommended for economy applications and garden structures
  • Certi-label product assurance
  • Smooth, taper-sawn with a natural appearance

A utility grade suitable where an economy product is acceptable. e.g. garden structures.

Certigrade™ Western Red Cedar shingles are produced by cutting blocks from the log to the desired length. Shingles are then taper sawn to size. This type of smooth sawn architecturally uniform cedar shingle is preferred for its natural and tailored appearance and is used on traditional and modern residential and non-residential structures.

Certi-Label™ Confidence

Not all cedar shake and shingle products are alike. Certi-label products, manufactured by Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau members, assure you of the highest quality standards. Member mills have committed to consistent quality through independent third-party inspections by accredited agencies. Each bundle of product has the mill's distinctive Certi-label tucked under the bundle strap. Asking for "the blue label" or "number one blue label" is not specific enough. Cedar Bureau members' products are the only ones with the Certi brand name on the label.

Case Study

Pixie Cabin using Western Red Cedar Shingles

When working with timber it should be expected that although ‘on-grade’, occasional boards may have minor imperfections that will require ‘working’ if you wish to eliminate. Examples include raised grain, small splits, minor handling marks, sticker marks etc – all of which can easily be remedied by trimming, gluing or sanding. In most cases imperfections can be removed with very little effort, and the small amount of off cuts generated as a result will be absorbed in the normal cutting and selection allowance.

Western Red Cedar is the ultimate green building material. It is legally, responsibly and sustainably harvested in the publicly managed forests of British Columbia, Canada. Less than 1% of standing timber is harvested each year.

For each tree harvested, three are replanted to ensure the forests will exist in perpetuity. Western Red Cedar has a low impact on the environment throughout its life cycle. It requires significantly less energy to produce than man-made alternatives and is bio-degradable.
