Legacy Pre-Finishing, Inc. applies stains to a variety of cedar, cement, and composite shake and shingle siding products. From hand-dipped individual cedar shakes and shingles to cedar shingle panel siding to fiber cement and composite shake panels, Legacy does it all.
Cedar Shingle Siding
Legacy Pre-Finishing can coat any cedar shingle siding product (usually western red cedar shingles fastened to 8"x8' plywood backing which installs like lap siding and looks like individual cedar shingles when installed). Siding is coated from end to end consistently, eliminating lap marks - just like pre-stained lap siding and trim. Legacy coats any type of panel - with or without keyways, even or staggered butt, with no drips or runs. Natural toned stains must be factory applied to eliminate lap marks on shingle siding. Legacy has applied Parade of Homes award winning exterior finishes to cedar shingle siding sold in the Carolinas.
Fiber Cement Shingle Siding
Legacy Pre-Finishing, Inc. applies more semi-transparent stain to cement shake-pattern siding than any other pre-finishing facility in the eastern US. Duckback and PPG stain products offer the look of natural woodtones on low-maintenance highly durable fiber cement siding products. Warranties on stained cement products range from 12 to 15 years.
Hand-Dipped Cedar Shakes and Shingles
Legacy Pre-Finishing's truly Hand-Dipped cedar shingles are reversible, allowing you to choose the best side to install. Hand dipped prefinished shingles absorb more stain than many machine applications, and subsequently have greater protection. We use Cabot, Sherwin-Williams, and Duckback oil based and water-borne oil stains to achieve the natural toned look you desire, or we can apply primer and solid color coating systems as well. Stained shingles are air dried in racks to allow natural stain penetration and proper coating curing time. Any green shake or shingle product is dried to less than 15% moisture content. Legacy Hand-Dipped Shingles may take a little longer and cost a little more, but you will get more coating applied for your money and it will look better longer.
