The most common question from homeowners is often Why Choose Cedar?

Architect Series 100% Two Pack R&R:

This product exceeds all other R&R products in the marketplace for two reasons. The first is that all rows are two shingles across. In addition to the classic elegant look the wide shingles create on a wall, with an average of 50% fewer keyways, the application speed is increased as well. There are fewer pieces to handle and fastener use is reduced by almost 30%, resulting in substantial installation cost savings.

Secondly, unlike other manufacturer’s products, our Architect Series and Stave Lake Premium products are graded again during manufacturing for appearance. While grade rules for R&R’s and other manufacturers of R&R shingles do not address kiln stains, tannin stains, and other appearance spoiling issues, we do. None of these defects are allowed on either face of our Architect Series or Stave Lake Premium series products.

Stave Lake Premium:

This product exceeds all other manufacturers R&R’s because of its appearance. While grade rules for R&R’s, and other manufacturers of R&R shingles do not address kiln stains, tannin stains, and other appearance spoiling issues, we do. None of these are allowed on either face of our Architect Series or Stave Lake Premium series products.

Shoreline:

A lower cost alternative to our superior products Architect Series and Stave Lake Brand, this product is similar to other R&R manufacturer’s products in terms of width and appearance, and exceeds grade rules on these products by allowed staining on only one face.

#2 R&R:

An 11” clear mixed grain price alternative to our #1 product.

Traditional Cuts:

An 8” clear product with one face machine sanded. The best cost versus value product to use on reduced exposure applications. Available unfinished, primed, or stained.

Cottage Cuts:

A sanded shingle with sound tight knots. It is available only primed and is best suited for reduced exposure painted wall applications.

PPG Oil Primers:

This is all we use for our standard primers. Applicators can get a 15 year coating warranty from Olympic/PPG by simply applying one coat of over 20 of PPG’s Exterior Acrylic offerings. No other manufacturer offers this guarantee.

Oil Stains and Primers: We offer clear, semitransparent, and semisolid oil 1 coat stains.

Architect Series:

This exceptional, enhanced, sidewall shingle from the craftsmen of Stave Lake Cedar sets a new standard in excellence. All rows in each carton are two shingles across. In addition to the classic elegant look the wide shingles create on a wall, with an average of 50% fewer keyways, the application speed is increased as well. There are fewer pieces to handle and fastener use is reduced by almost 30%, resulting in substantial installation cost savings.

Remember as well, that unlike other manufacturer’s products, our Architect Series and Stave Lake Premium products are graded again during manufacturing for appearance. While grade rules for sidewall shingles, and other manufacturers of sidewall shingles, do not address or correct the problem of kiln stains, tannin stains, and other appearance spoiling issues, we do.

Architect Series R&R’s from Stave Lake Cedar provide you with 1030 inches of coverage in each carton, just like a regular R&R, with only 112 shingles, saving you in both application time and installation cost. Cartons selling for less from other manufacturers can contain up to 224 pieces to cover the same area. On a typical home in the Northeast that means 11200 more pieces to handle and 22400 more fasteners to apply. Can you afford to not apply the best?

Stave Lake sidewall shingles are only produced from shingles produced by members of the Cedar Shake and Shingle Bureau. Only when you start with quality can you get quality. Can your current supplier make the same claim?

All shingles used in the manufacture of Stave Lake Cedar sidewall shingles are rigorously graded for appearance before they are dried, after they are dried, and after they are made into sidewall shingles. No other manufacturer is as obsessed with perfection like the Waldun Group.
