Factory Finished Shingles
All of Direct Cedar Supplies’ Eastern White Cedar Prefinished shingles are kiln dried prior to finishing, and then carefully packaged once finished so that the product you receive is clean, fresh and ready for install. We use the highest quality stains and finishes produced by Olympic®, a leader in architectural finishes. Call us today for more information
Bleaching Oil or Weathering Stain – For customers that don’t want to wait for nature to take it’s course, our Bleaching Oil and Weathering Stain finishes give the shingles a uniform, consistent, naturally weathered look that will blend in over time beautifully to maintain the silver-grey color that makes Eastern White Cedar so popular. The linseed oil formula penetrates deep into the grain to strengthen and condition wood fibres and helps to prevent unsightly mildew growth
Semi-Transparent Stain – When you want to maintain the natural grain and textured appearance of a cedar shingle, but want your own personal touch on the color, a Semi-Transparent finish is the way to go. Our Olympic® Semi-Transparent Stain is available in any color under the rainbow. We can also color match anything you may have encountered that you like.
Solid Stain – For those customers that want extra coverage, a more uniform color, and less maintenance over time, we offer both 1 Coat and 2 Coat Solid Finishes. These are available in either one of our 5 stock colors (more readily available), or in any custom color of your choice.
