Starting with the highest quality cedar logs from the Pacific Northwest, we take the wood from beginning to end-product to craft beautiful shingles and shakes that are the perfect finish to any home building project. A wood home demonstrates that the owner has made a choice for luxury, sustainability and craftsmanship. Cedar is weather resistant, energy efficient, naturally insect repellant, renewable and will continue to look beautiful for years to come. Our products are inspected by QAI as well as the Cedar Shake and Shingle Bureau who confirm quality and consistency to ensure that the customer gets the best possible product.
Our shingles are cut precisely by sawyers to preserve the natural beauty of the raw cedar. They are cut to perfection to create a smooth sawn and architecturally uniform look. The shingles are packed according to specification to ensure that the customer receives the best quality, quantity and value for their purchase.
The shingle products we make come in three different grades:
Our shakes are sawn using a method developed by shake sawyers in the early 1900s. The method was enhanced by our founder, Isedor Schmidt, over the course of his long career in the business. The shakes are cut from blocks of cedar along the grain to maintain the beauty as well as the strength and integrity of the raw wood. The finished product is a stunning and durable cedar shake that is the ideal culmination of any roof or siding.
