The beauty of a cedar shingle isn’t apparent until it’s firmly fastened to the wall among hundreds of other shingles. No two shingles look quite the same – because they aren’t.
Because Mother Nature doesn’t allow shingles to look alike, neither does NuCedar.
NuCedar Shingles are milled, not molded, in a modern day sawmill and have the same unique character and warm texture as wood. Our brushing patterns produce different color and shading appearance on each shingle, allowing installers to create a quilt-like effect on the exterior of a home. NuCedar Shingles offer an extended level of durability and low maintenance that cedar shingles just cannot match.
NuCedar Trim & Corner Options
NuCedar Shingles are as easy to install and specify as they use similar installation techniques as cedar shingles. Use NuCedar’s Standard Trim & Corners to achieve the same classic look that has been popular in coastal regions for generations.
Or, create a Woven Corner, contoured shapes above windows and doors, or any other decorative statement that you can imagine — as craftsman have always done with cedar shingles.
Over time, painted cedar shingles are generally affected by moisture and insect problems that require ongoing repair, repainting or frequent replacement.
A time-tested advantage of NuCedar Shingles™ is that they are impervious to water and insects and therefore last for generations.
And don’t forget the cooling properties and energy savings potential associated with our solar-reflective finish. This can be particularly helpful along the beachfront or on mountain ridges where the suns UV rays can be especially damaging when absorbed by standard cladding materials.
NuCedar Shingles accurately capture the natural beauty and charm of precisely tapered, resquared and rebutted red cedar shingles. No other product on the market offers the look, texture and true architectural character of real wood shingles with exceptionally minimal maintenance and a Lifetime Limited finish warranty.
NuCedar Shingles can also be cut in the field and touched up to give different shapes needed for the look you desire.
