Product Selection & Purchasing

What brand name should I choose and why?

Ensure that you specify "Certi-label" cedar shakes or shingles for your next project. There are many brands of cedar shakes and shingles in the marketplace: only CSSB manufacturing members are allowed to label their products with the distinctive, reliable "Certi" brand name. Specifying "Blue Label" products is not detailed enough: ask for the "Certi" brand name. Certi-label products are manufactured within a third party inspection process, giving you a reliable standard of quality. Member products also meet grading rule standards, and offer a limited warranty when Number 1 grade Certi-label products are installed by a CSSB Member Contractor/Installer.
