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 a seamless appearance and is available in a fiber substrate.Our Rustic Barn color has a nice dark red to mimic an old weathered red barn. Darker accents are used to fill in the cedar texture of the board giving it a true natural wood stain look.
