These #2 tapersawn shingles are 100% old growth and 100% heartwood. They are clear vertical grain on the bottom 8 inches of the shingle, which means they will look exactly like #1 grade once installed… at less than half the price! They are sawn with an extra thick 5/8″ butt and are 18″ long. Seven bundles will cover 100 SF at 5.5″ exposure. Five bundles will cover 100 SF at 7.5″ exposure. Alaskan Yellow Cedar is highly decay resistant (more so than Western Red Cedar) and within a few months weathers naturally to a silvery gray as shown in the photos below.
