Cedar shingles (Thuja Plicata), are a popular choice for external timber cladding. They are widely favored by architects and specifiers for their durability, lightweight, and aesthetic appeal. Cedar shingles are classified as a durable species, making them a great choice for roof and wall tiles. The Cedar shingles supplied by Brookridge Timber, a south west Cedar shingles supplier and timber cladding supplier in Devon, are exceptional. They are 100% clear heartwood, 100% vertical grain, and kiln-dried.
The benefits of Cedar shingles are numerous. Firstly, they are a sustainable material sourced from well-managed forests in Western Canada, making them an environmentally friendly choice. Secondly, they are naturally resistant to rot and insects, reducing the need for chemical preservatives. However, if preservative treatment is required, Brookridge Timber provides a 30-year warranty with preservative treated shingles.
Cedar shingles are also virtually maintenance-free, but it is recommended to remove any debris accumulating on the roof to increase their longevity. Installing a 100mm zinc strip exposed at the ridge can prevent moss growth.
The Cedar shingles supplied by Brookridge Timber feature clear heartwood and vertical grain. The clear heartwood provides a consistent color and quality throughout the shingle, while the vertical grain provides a superior strength and dimensional stability. Additionally, the kiln-drying process removes moisture from the shingles, reducing the risk of shrinkage and warping.
Cedar shingles are a great choice for external timber cladding because of their durability, lightweight, and aesthetic appeal. They can be used for both roofs and walls, creating a natural and unique look to a building.
