Cedar shingles

Pieces of cedar, usually Western Red Cedar, tapered pieces approximately 16″ long.  Usually used for roofing or siding.  Cedar shingles make excellent roofing and siding, with a very long useful life.  They should be oiled after installation, and re-oiled every 5 years or so.  Shingles differ from Shakes in that they are cut, rather than split, from the log.
