Cedar Shingle Siding
Its all about providing the best protection for your Cedar Shingles before you install. We have found that factory pre-staining is the best investment to ensure your wood shingles perform. Coating to protecting all sides can not be machine automated. Factory Hand Dipped Cedar Shingles is commitment to doing the job exactly right.
Factory Dipped Western Red Cedar Shingle Siding
Factory Dipped Cedar Shingles tested our commitment to doing the job exactly right. In order to get stain on all 6 sides of EVERY CEDAR SHINGLE we set up a custom dipping and drying line.
The most common cause of failure is not finishing the backside of the shingles. Now you know why. Doing it the exact right way is a HUGE PAIN IN THE BUTT!
Realistically it is such a pain to finish shakes and shingles correctly that most people simply don’t! But it is definitely worth the effort and the cost to do it RIGHT!

Unfinished cedar shingles are sold in "squares" of 100 SQFT. Depending on the shingle style selected they are initially packaged in bundles or boxes. During the finish process they are unpackaged and each shingle is dipped, brushed and dried individually.
When dry the shingles are stacked on a pallet which is delivered to you by box truck. Pallet max is approximately 1500 SQFT. If your volume is significantly more or less than 1500 sqft, delivery cost may be added on.
Depending on the mill selected to meet your order the shingles will either be hand dipped in the 4 step process outlined above or a meld of machine and manual Stain & Priming Process : The Shingles put through a set of rollers, stain gets flooded into chamber where shingles are submerged in stain for a period, move through another set of brushes & rollers to remove excess stain, are moved to a drip-dry-tray, then inserted into cardboard box, packaged 4-wedges per box.
