Cedar shakes and shingles manufactured by members of the Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau (”CSSB”) are the only products labelled with the ”Certi” brand name. Certi-label cedar shakes and shingles are made by experienced craftsmen who take pride in their trade and the quality of their product.
Each bundle of product has the mill’s distinctive Certi-label tucked under the bundle strap. Asking for “the blue label” or “number one blue label” is not specific enough: CSSB members’ products are the only ones with the Certi brand name on the label.
Architects don’t merely engineer a building, they envision its complete form in all its visual splendour. Sometimes, taking liberties with building materials can compromise that vision, so the savviest designers will specify that only a cedar roof will nail the desired look.
Timber Shakes imbue many of the attractive qualities of shingles, but with a more rustic and natural appeal. They have a hand cut appearance that truly reflect natures random design.
Handsplit Shakes can have split faces and sawn backs. Cedar logs are first cut into desired lengths. Blanks or boards of proper thickness are split and then run diagonally through a bandsawn to produce two tapered shakes from each blank. Available in Premium Grade (100% edge grain) or Number 1 Grade (Up to 20% flat grain allowed in each bundle).
These Shakes are sawn both sides Premium and Number 1 Grades are the most common. Premium Grade is 100% edge grain, 100% clear and 100% heartwood. Number 1 Grade allows up to 20% flat grain in each bundle. Number 2 and 3 Grades are also available.
