Cedar shingles and shakes are renowned for their insulation qualities, dimensional stability and natural resistance to the elements. Cedar roof shingles contain a natural preservative making them uncommonly durable in their natural state.
For quality assurance, always specify Certigrade Western Red Cedar Shingles. The term Blue Label is actually a registered trademark of the Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau association which has over 250 member companies.
