  • No. 1 grade blue label shingles (Commonly known as Five-X)
  • Recommended for premium applications where a high quality finish is required
  • Certi-label product assurance
  • Smooth, taper-sawn with a natural appearance
Certigrade™ cedar shingles are produced by cutting blocks from the log to the desired length. Shingles are then taper sawn to size. This type of smooth sawn architecturally uniform cedar shingle is preferred for its natural and tailored appearance and is used on traditional and modern residential and non-residential structures.

Certi-Label™ Confidence

Not all cedar shake and shingle products are alike. Certi-label products, manufactured by Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau members, assure you of the highest quality standards. Member mills have committed to consistent quality through independent third-party inspections by accredited agencies. 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. Cedar Bureau members' products are the only ones with the Certi brand name on the label.

Recommended use:

A good grade for many applications where a good quality finish is required.
 
Coverage:
  • 1 Bundle on roofs with a 19º > pitch - 2.32 sq. metres
