LP® SmartSide® cedar shakes offer the look of real cedar, easy to install and require less maintenance over real cedar shingles. The staggered edges offer a lively textured effect and can be installed 180 degrees for a straight shake look. These panels can be used to cover the entire exterior or used as an accent. Each panel has a shiplap edge for seamless appearance and are available in a fiber substrate.Our Beechnut color has a yellow golden tone with darker accents that fill in the texture of the board giving it a true natural wood stain look. When you combine the deep texture of these shake panels with the Beechnut stain, the final product looks like real wood shakes.
