The gold standard of Western Red Cedar shingles
Produced from the very best old growth Western Red Cedar
Made from exceptional old growth Western Red Cedar heartwood, their quality exceeds the official industry grading rules. Superior wood fibre combined with the fact that a bundle of Waldun Premium typically contains a greater proportion of wider shingles than standard No. 1 Grade Blue Label (enabling faster installation), makes them well worth the minimal extra investment.
Waldun Forest Products – a family company and respected name in the industry
Waldun Premium shingles are made by Waldun Forest Products, a family company that dates back almost half a century, and who are today one of the largest and most respected names in the cedar shingle and shake industry.The Waldun name is synonymous with quality. Back in 2012 it was Waldun shakes that were chosen for the restoration of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall. Perhaps the most important historic building in the United States, it was here that both the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were debated and adopted. Silva’s relationship with Waldun goes back almost 15 years. Our partnership with this leading manufacturer has enabled us to become a major importer with what is probably the widest range and largest stockholdings of cedar shingles and shakes in Europe.
Beautiful natural appearance that gives buildings a touch of individuality
With rich warm colour tones and texture, Western Red Cedar shingles will provide a distinctive look of character that blends naturally with the environment.
MicroPro Sienna® colour toned preservative treatment
MicroPro Sienna® is a preservative treatment that will boost the durability of the shingles and enhance their natural colour to a rich warm brown tone that will gradually weather down over time. Alternatively it can be re-finished to maintain the colour.
A complete range of shingle products
In addition to shingles, Silva also provides pre-formed shingle hip and ridge units, battens, Tyvek® breathable membrane, stainless steel nails, and a wide range of finishes and cleaning products – everything you need to complete the job.
