Product Description

Western Red Cedar Shingles & Shakes are a truly renewable and sustainable roofing and cladding material; with one of the lowest carbon footprints of any widely used building product. They are light to transport yet durable and offer a high degree of thermal insulation.

Red Label Western cedar shingles are a cost-effective and lower quality alternative to the high-quality Blue Label. Unlike Blue Label cedar shingles, Red Label shingles allow for limited sapwood and flat grain and can also feature minor knots and defects above the clear portion.

Not recommended for roofing in the UK, homeowners typically use Red Label Western cedar shingles in the construction of garden buildings such as tool sheds, arbours and gazebos.

Shingles and Shakes have been used for a wide range of structures from simple garden gazebos to domestic dwellings to major theme parks. Shingles and Shakes perform the same functions but are manufactured in different ways. A Shingle is produced by sawing a block of wood on both sides, giving a relatively smooth face and back. A Shake is hand split from a block of cedar along the natural grain of the wood and then resawn to produce one smooth surface.

Cedar Shingles can be fixed to pitches as low as 14 degrees.

Installation

For maximum life, fixing should be made with 2 no. 31mm x 1.8mm silicon bronze annular ring nails per shingle. As a guide, approximately 1kg of nails is required to fix 6 bundles of shingles.

Questions & Answers

Question:

The coverage you quote is that including laps?

Answer:

Yes that coverage is including overlaps when installed over a 22° pitch.

Question:

Your video shows how to terminate ridge caps where they meet, but how do you terminate hip caps?

Answer:

There is not a specific hip end cap for Cedat Shingles, you would normally leave them open at the bottom of the hip.

Question:

If the shingles were laid side by side what would the total width be? If this is unknown what is the pack width as from the picture there appears to be 42 layers of shingles. I am planning to cover a hex gazebo with a 22.5 degree pitch roof. Thank you.

Answer:

We do not have these measurements I am afraid, the best figure to calculate from is the laid coverage of each pack is 2.28m² So if you divide your total area by that you will get the number of packs you will need to cover it.

Question:

I want to lay a cedar shingle leanto gazebo,the roof coverage is 18m2,how many packs will I need?

Answer:

Is the roof pitch is over 22° you would need 8 packs to cover this area, if pitch below 22° you would need 11 packs.

Question:

I am covering the front overhang on a summerhouse. 1 metre deep by 3.5 metres in length. Will I need to order 2 x packs of shingles.

Answer:

Yes for that area we would advise two packs.

Question:

Cedar wood shingles - the area I have to cover is 24m2 therefore I assume taking account of the overlaps that I needb 24/2.28 = 11 packs. Is this correct? Thanks

Answer:

That is correct provided the roof pitch is over 22°, if below this you would need to work off the coverage of 1.73m2 per bundle.

What about Ridge Do you sell them?

Answer:

Yes you can find the ridges on the below link.

Question:

What’s the difference between red label and blue label shingles

Answer:

The Red Label are a lower grade so are not as uniform or finished as nicely as the Blue Label. If you email your address to sales@roofingsuperstore.co.uk we can always arrange for a sample of each to be sent to you.
