The genuine, natural color and grain of Western Red Cedar transform a residence into a work of art. Cedar shingles lend dimensionality to a home's design. Give each angle drama. And create an expression of unmatched quality and timeless appeal.
Cedar not only outlasts trends in style: it outlasts other building materials. The wood is renowned for its inherent resistance to the effects of rain, sun , pests and time. Its cellular structure makes an excellent insulator, and allows for natural resistance to weather conditions ranging from severe summer heat to brutal winter storms.
Shakertown's 8-foot panels install up to 10 times faster than individual shingles. And it's faster and far safer than cement, plastic, vinyl and other imitations. With our exclusive self-aligning edges, one worker can line up and secure panels with a hammer or nailing gun. Flush corners match panels exactly and are easy to install. Shakertown panels are sized to match stud spacing so you don't lose a thing to trim. You pay for coverage instead of board feet, which saves you up to 30% on overlap waste. And the clean, finished line of a pre-inspected panel means the end of soiled, split or knotty shingles to hand-sort and toss out.
The Shakertown® Craftsman 1-Course Cedar Shingle Panel is the newest development from the company that brought you the original cedar shingle panel. Manufactured using only the finest Western Red Cedar vertical-grain heartwood, the new Shakertown Craftsman Panel features a full plywood back, a thick 3/8" shingle butt and overlocking end-joints for a seamless appearance.
Shakertown Craftsman Panels go up 6 times faster than individual shingles and can be installed with a pneumatic nailer. And the blind/concealed nailing creates a true, traditional shingle appearance.
The panels are 8' long and available in an exposure size of 7", 4 1/2" and 14" (14" exposure product is face nailed). Shakertown Craftsman Panels are constructed with a classic keyway joint or tight contemporary joint between shingles. The panels are available with an even-butt or staggered-butt line to match any home style
The new Shakertown Tahoe™ panel offers a unique and dramatic appearance to your home or building. Tahoe's ½" thick shingle butt replicates the look of 24" Royal sidewall shingles, with a more dramatic shadow line than 18" shingles.
The Tahoe Shaker panel is currently available in the 7" exposure, and comes with all of the other features of our 7" Craftsman panel, including:
The Tahoe panel is made with 100% vertical grain Western Red Cedar. Other companies promote a thicker shingle, but it's typically flat grain which cups, curls and splits.
