We have been waiting patiently for 2 new shingle products to arrive and as of today they are here. The first and most unique is a #1 grade Kiln Dried, Re-jointed and Re-Butted, Sanded, Alaska Yellow Cedar 18″ sidewall shingle. These shingles are perfection, literally. Alaska Yellow Cedar is extremely durable and strong with insect and rot resistance equal to or greater than western Red cedar. There is a dead stand of AYC at 4200′ on the way to Hurricane Ridge on the Olympic peninsula that has been virtually unchanged since the 1960’s or earlier. This is in an area where less hardy trees like Sub alpine fir last 5 year or less once they are blown down or die. These Alaskan Yellow Cedar shingles are available at only a few places nationwide and nowhere but Mill Outlet at our competitive price.
#1, R&R, Dry, sanded Alaskan Yellow Cedar Shingles
Each box will cover 100 square feet at 14″ exposed with a lower grade under course or 50 square feet at 7″ exposed. Because they are dry and sanded they are perfectly ready for finish or stain.
The second new and somewhat unique shingle is a #2 grade Western Red Cedar, Kiln Dried, Re-jointed and Re-Butted, Sanded,18″ sidewall shingle. These are not a seconds, just #2 Grade and a pretty nice #2 at that. They come in the same size boxes as the yellow cedar shingles and are ready for stain or finish as well
At Mill Outlet we are steadily growing our offering of high quality, competitively priced Cedar shingles and shakes. We now have over 20 different variations in stock. Most popular are the green western red cedar shingles but we also have specialty items like Alaska Yellow cedar in #1 shingles, #2&3 Shingles and 18″ #1 Shakes. As for Western Red cedar Shakes we primarily stock #1 Select grade which are a step above average in both Medium and Heavy thicknesses. Another specialty item is #2 Tapersawn Shakes in both 5/8″ and 3/4″ thicknesses. Tapersawn shakes are ideal for distinctive siding and can be used on roofs but should be limited to outdoor structures such as gazebos and pergolas.
