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 Silver Ash color has a silver-gray satin finish with darker accents that fill in the texture of the board giving it a true natural wood stain look. If you prefer the look of a silver weathered wood but with less maintenance than real wood, these stains are the best way to achieve that look.
