NuCedar: Authentic Low-Maintenance Shingle Siding



NuCedar offers the most authentic wood alternative to real cedar shingle siding. Each and every shingle is unique, allowing installers to replicate the quilting effect that until now could only be created with real cedar shingles. We’ve shown this product at dozens of trade events, and we always have trouble convincing people it's not wood. 

That's exactly what we want to hear. NuCedar is the only product on the market that can satisfy the discerning homeowner who wants the traditional appearance of real wood, without the maintenance requirements.

NuCedar PVC shingles are available in 18 colors, including Cedar and Argos, which mimic the appearance of new and weathered cedar shingles, respectively. In addition to shingles, American Lumber also offers clapboard and vertical sidings, as well as a full array of NuCedar trim and mouldings to complete your project.  


NuCedar will greatly outlast standard shingles without requiring replacement or repainting, even in coastal applications. And as a caulkless system, it's truly low-maintance. Impervious to water , and sporting hurricane-besting wind-resistance , NuCedar is a truly durable cladding, right down to the paint warranty

And it's cost-competitive with the on-the-wall cost of painted western red cedar shingles. Over time, as you save on repainting, caulking and repairing, NuCedar more than pays for itself.  


NuCedar features ENERGY STAR 'Cool Core' technology, and has been shown to reduce the energy required to cool a home by 5-8%. NuCedar is also 100% recyclable with 20% recycled content.

NuCedar can contribute in multiple LEED categories - let us show you how we can help rack up those points!
