Royal Designer Shakes

designer_shakes_houseNow, the classic look of authentic cedar shakes can be yours with Royal Designer Shake. This innovative panel comes in two distinctive profiles, both of which complement a wide range of architectural styles.

Rough Sawn provides a refined look, with a 7 1/2″ exposure, a uniform surface, and a straight bottom edge for a subtle shadow line.

Hand Split provides a rustic look, with a 9″ exposure, a variably grained surface, and an uneven bottom ledge for a strong shadow line.

With Royal Designer Shake, design possibilities are endless. Some of the most creative ideas come from mixing and matching color schemes, resulting in a unique look that beautifully expresses your personal vision.

Built with Dura Technology

The key to the Dura TechnologyTM Process is RoyalsideTM Compound, a proven blend of the world’s finest raw materials. This blend, together with our exclusive DURATM impact modifiers and premium ingredients, forms the base for a tougher, longer lasting siding.

UV Tested for Color Fade Resistance
UV tests ensure your siding provides outstanding resistance to fading and discoloring. This advanced color fade protection is achieved by combining our innovative RoyalsideTM Compound and Dura TechnologyTM Process.

Cold Tested For Harsh Weather
Royal tests its siding against brittleness at temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C), ensuring your siding will maintain its superior durability, rigidity and structural integrity under severe weather conditions.

Impact Tested For Strength
Extensive impact tests are conducted at 73°F (23°C) and 32°F (0°C) to ensure your siding exceeds ASTM standards and can withstand the elements, including hail, under any condition.
