Western Red Cedar shingles offer a fantastic alternative to the traditional roof and wall tiles due to their durability, attractive appearance, outstanding insulation properties and ease of installation.

Western Red Cedar shingles have been a favoured material throughout America for a number of years due to their appearance, versatility and longevity. The rich colour range of Western Red Cedar from pale honey to reddish browns will naturally age to a silver-grey over time, although the original colour can be preserved more easily where shingles have been used as cladding or an interior feature.

Shingles are available in three different grades that are suitable for different applications:

  • No. 1 grade (blue label) is produced entirely from heartwood with no defects, and so is also suitable for use as cladding as well as roofing.
  • No. 2 grade (red label) is recommended for roofing where a good quality finish is desired.
  • No. 3 grade (black label) is only suitable for roofing of secondary buildings such as sheds.

As you move down the grades there are more natural defects permitted which reduces the recommended exposure of the shingles. Detailed coverage information can be found in the further information tab.

Certigrade No. 1 Blue Label is the premium grade of shingles suitable for high-end roofs and wall cladding applications. These top-grade shingles are 100% heartwood, 100% clear and 100% edge grain with no defects. Always specify Certigrade No.1 Blue Label to ensure product quality, correct grading and consistency.

Member mills have committed to consistent quality through independent third-party inspections by accredited agencies. Each bundle of the product has the mill's distinctive Certi-label tucked under the bundling 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.

Raw Material

Silva Timber's Western Red Cedar is renowned for its high quality and consistency. Long term relationships with our suppliers and deep knowledge of the cedar industry give us the advantage of having a continuous supply of the very best raw material.

Our size and buying power have enabled us to be in the privileged position of sourcing raw material direct from British Columbia’s largest and most respected primary mills which are monitored by the Cedar Shake and Shingle Bureau.

Silva Timber shingles are made exclusively from premium coastal grown Western Red Cedar. Trees grown in the coastal region of British Columbia produce timber that is generally richer in colour and tighter grained than that produced from Western Red Cedar trees grown further inland. With its distinctive aroma and luxurious appearance, Silva Timber’s Western Red Cedar stands apart from the rest, providing unrivalled beauty and maximum dimensional stability.

Grading

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.

For quality assurance, always specify Certigrade Western Red Cedar Shingles. The term “Blue Label” is a registered trademark of the Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau trade association which has over 250 member companies.  Be aware that just because a supplier puts a label in a blue colour on its bundles does not mean that it’s on grade or third party inspected. Certigrade Western Red Cedar Shingles are inspected by legitimate, third party agencies, accredited by the Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau. 

Silva Timber is a Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau member. The Bureau monitors and inspects member mills to ensure product quality, grading rules and consistency of Certi-Label cedar shingles and shakes are maintained.
