Cedar is one of the most common and one of the best natural materials used for siding. Natural cedar shingles create a timeless appeal that can transform your home into a work of art. Cedar shingles not only offer a very high level of protection, but also have great insulating characteristics and a low carbon-footprint, which makes them a great choice for builders who want to create energy-efficient "green" construction.
