Cedar Shakes

Cedar shakes are a traditional exterior wall covering on the cape.  The two most popular types of cedar shakes are white cedar and red cedar.  White cedar shakes are most commonly seen, because they are less expensive than red cedar.  The cedar shakes below are white cedar.

White cedar shakes, trim includes pine and Azek to resist rot.

They are purchased by the bundle.  I paid $59 a bundle for the cedar shakes in these photos.
