Our 48” shingles are our largest Cedar roofing product, and an excellent choice for specialty projects such as historical restorations where an off-the-shelf shingle or shake won’t do. They can be used in both roof and wall applications — because of their size, they allow for a large gap between individual pieces, creating a unique, striking visual impact.
Details & Examples:
Custom Shingles’ 48” shingles are made from Western Red Cedar, an abundant and cost-effective variety with a high natural resistance to decay. Over time, Western Red Cedar shingles will lose their characteristic burgundy appearance, maturing to an august silver-grey color.
48” shingles are sawn on both sides for a smooth, tailored appearance. They are random in width and can be cut to a thickness of your specification. Because of their size, they will retain a watertight seal without the use of a felt interlay.
Use our 48” shingles for Cedar siding or on roofs with a pitch of 3:12 or steeper. Maximum exposure length can be up to 14 ½”. In any application, our shingles provide an appearance of exceptional quality and professionalism, while retaining much of the charm Cedar roofing is known for.

Our 48” shingles are a unique product in their own right. With an extensive selection of customization options, however, their design possibilities are expanded even further. We have extensive in-house steam bending and shaping capabilities, allowing our team to create eye-catching architectural features, such as rolling eaves and curved gables, that would be impossible to achieve otherwise.
Our shingles can be cut to any profile in the Fancy-Cutt™ lineup, or to your own custom design. We can also deliver our 48” shingles pre-stained in the color of your choice, saving you time and money in the installation process.
Finally, we offer the option of having our shingles treated with our Certi-Guard™ fire retardant, or with a CCA (chromated copper arsenate) coating. We recommend CCA for any outdoor application that will be exposed to rain, snow and other harsh weather conditions, while our Certi-Guard™ shingles are approved for use in Class A, B or C-compliant roofing systems.
