White cedar shingles outlast all others because they naturally inhibit decay and pests. Bugs don’t like white cedar. Just look to the hundred-year-old structures throughout the eastern United States still carrying their original shingles.

Harvested sustainably, then split and packaged for you, our shakes and shingles are a joy to work with. There’s nothing to siding a small building, just for starters. Plus, we can produce any custom shingle configuration you can imagine.

“I had so much fun doing this!” says Andrea,

“I received all of the cedar, and everything looks great...excellent quality. I will definitely return in the future,” says Steve of Chaddsford, PA

Our northern white cedar shingles weather to a silvered gray when left unfinished. Left as is, their natural rot-resistance will protect them for decades. Stains and paints hold well, too. We offer pre-stain and paint services on shingle orders over 15 squares; this assures you of exceptional, lasting color and protection.

We recommend Keene products under our shingles for a ventilating underlayment more efficient than furring strips and much easier to install. $159 per roll.
For product specs, see Keene's Driwall CDR breather fabric.

At True North, we sell shingles by the square. To assist with calculating your material needs, a square is equal to 4 bundles of shingles and covers a 10' x 10' [100 square feet] area when exposing 5" of the shingle butt.
