These high quality Eastern white cedar shakes are the ideal material for long-lasting outdoor siding or roofing. Cedar contains natural oils that offer an exceptional resistance against, mould, decay, and insects. This is a natural alternative to chemically treated woods, or synthetic materials, that can be toxic and age poorly.
The life of the wood can be extended by combining with a linseed oil treatment such as Pure Linseed Oil Paint or Pine Tar to give a beautiful finish that lasts - with little long-term maintenance and no peeling!
