A flexible and durable tool
You can use if for multiple projects involving all types of cedar shingles, both on walls and roofs, thanks to its sturdy, durable design.
for shingles that breathe
In order to maximize the life of your shingles, we recommend leaving a ventilation space underneath them during installation. To do so, there is no need to resort to using wooden laths. You can use Mortairvent® membrane (or equivalent), designed for walls, or CedAir-Mat® membrane (or equivalent), designed for roofs, to the surface prior to installing your shingles, and it will do all the ventilation work! All you need to do is lay your shingles over the membrane.
for a flawless finish
Shingles often have to be cut during installation, such as when finishing wall corners or when working around windows. If you have chosen factory-stained shingles, it is important to do the necessary touch-ups using the same stain. At SBC, our stains are available in liter, gallon or handy SBC touch-up kits.

Fibre for playgrounds, both fun and safe
Protect your kids from unfortunate falls at the playground. Our playground cedar fibre is filtered during manufacturing, which gives it a fibrous and softer texture providing extra protection at play time. As an added bonus, it is made from 100% natural cedar and is a non-toxic product. It is no coincidence that SBC cedar fibre can be found at many public parks, schools and daycares today.
