Eastern White Shingles

Premium Grade Eastern White Cedar

These shingles are 100% heartwood with no defects on any surface. Much lighter in color than western red cedar, these premiums look best with semi-solid and solid stains. These shingles are rebutted and resquared (R&R) with a sanded face.

Coverage: 1 box = 25 square feet at 5” exposure (maximum)

Select Grade Eastern White Cedar

These shingles have some heartwood and some defects (knots) but not in the exposed face. Solid stains, primers and paint are recommended for this grade. These shingles are rebutted and resquared (R&R) with a sanded face.

Coverage: 1 box = 25 square feet at 5” exposure (maximum)

Finishing Recommendations

Eastern white cedar, while not as durable as western red, is a fine product for exterior use. For maximum longevity for eastern white cedar shingles use a higher solid finish (semi-solid stains, solid stains or paints) that better protects the shingle from cupping and splitting. We typically recommend an oil-based finish for better penetration of the sanded face (see oil vs. water in the Colors section).

Warranties

5-15 year warranties are available for particular finishes on eastern white cedar shingles.
