CertainTeed’s Cedar Impressions Individual 5” Sawmill Shingles are a Great Substitute for Wood Shingles.

In a unanimous vote, the Philadelphia Historical Commission approved the use of Cedar Impressions on the Sedgeley Club, a boathouse on the National Landmark Registry, due to its authentic natural cedar look and long-lasting performance.

Better Than Wood Restoration for Historic Sedgeley Club

Individual 5” Sawmill Shingles, featuring proprietary CedarLife™ Color Blends color-through technology in Rustic Blend, were chosen by the Friends of Historic Sedgeley and unanimously approved by the Philadelphia Historical Commission for the product’s ability to match the design of the Boathouse’s original shingles and maintain the integrity of its architecture.

Before and After Historic Sedgeley Club Restoration


The restoration of The Sedgeley Club, a Historic Philadelphia landmark, included a custom mix of dark and medium Rustic Blend Individual 5” Sawmill Shingles, which capture the seasoned look of Western Red Cedar with a consistent weathering pattern that will not change over time.

Installs and Looks Like Real Cedar Shingles

Cedar Impressions® Individual 5" Sawmill Shingles are the industry’s first polymer shingles that feature an innovative, blended color throughout. Each shingle reflects the sawmill texture of real cedar and installs in the same manner as individual cedar shingles.

Cedar Impressions is Still Beautiful After 25 Years

As one of the first builders to use Cedar Impressions Siding, over 25 years ago, Wayne Megill of Megill Homes has come to experience first hand the longevity and performance of this product. In 1992, Wayne installed CertainTeed’s Cedar Impressions Shingles on his own home at the shore. Now 25 years later, the original installation remains virtually unchanged, and even an addition 20 years later with new Cedar Impressions shingles was a perfect match. See this living testimony and hear Wayneʼs story.
