Fivex 16” shingles are best for use on roofs with a 3:12 or steeper pitch. They are an essential component of our Country Cottage Roof system, and can be steamed and bent to fit curved eaves and gables, as well as other unique architectural features such as wall arches, onion roofs, bell towers and more.
To add decorative flare to your project, we can cut any 16” Fivex shingle to one of our Fancy-Cutt™ profiles, such as diamond, fish scale, half-round and more. Custom design services are also available.

Details & Examples:
Our 16” Fivex shingle is made from solid Western Red Cedar, an abundant and sustainably managed tree that’s prized for its weight, straight grain and natural resistance to decay. It’s generally light in color, though over time it will weather to an attractive grey.
Individual shingles are 16” in length and an average of 6” wide. Bundled together, a group of five will measure 2” thick. Minute variations in thickness from shingle to shingle are to be expected, and add to the character of the finished project.
A premium quality product, our 16in Fivex shingles are made from 100% edge grain clear heartwood. We sell Certigrade® Number 1, Blue Label® shingles that are verified to be completely free from defects.

At Custom Shingles, we know that no two projects are the same. Your budget, your location and your specific goals will all affect your choice of shingle. Some additional ways we can customize your order include:
- By pre-staining the shingles to the color of your choice. We can even mix and match different stains for a multicolored, rococo look that’s sure to stand out from the crowd.
- With a chromated copper arsenate (CCA) treatment for increased resistance to fungus and decay. To keep your roof in good condition for longer, we recommend CCA treatment in any site that is humid, damp or shaded.
- With a Certi-Guard™ fire treatment. Certi-label™ shake and shingle roofs can be made compliant with Class A, B and C roofing systems, as well as other standards imposed by your local building code.
