A natural cedar replacement for the hardboard market, Grayne Engineered Shake & Shingle incorporates every luxurious detail of cedar shingles. This enables Grayne to deliver all the warmth and ambience of real cedar, without the costly maintenance.
The 5” plain sawn shingle’s sharply defined edges and grain patterns create realistic depth and shadows. As natural cedar ages, the light, thicker grain and dark, thinner grain have distinct color differences. To deliver this authentic multi-hued, aged cedar appearance, Grayne utilizes a proprietary coating process.
Another benefit of this process is that Grayne’s unique palette, available in 6 popular colors, bypasses the 3 to 5 year natural cedar weathering process to deliver the perfect aged color from the day it’s installed. In addition, its grain texture is visible from every angle. The deep keyways create pronounced shadows, which make a bold statement up close and from the curb.
An engineered composite, Grayne features a high-performance weather-resistant cap, which resists moisture absorption. Unlike cedar shingles, it will never cup, curl, crack or split and never needs painting. It can also easily replace or complement fiber cement or engineered wood siding.
Fast and easy to install, its cavity back design allows for airflow behind the panel, saving time and money versus installing on wooden laths. To deliver the most genuine look, Grayne’s patent pending dual offset installation method enables the shingle siding to be easily installed in the same layout as natural cedar. This also prevents keyway stacks.
Extremely durable, Grayne holds a Class 1A Fire Rating, exceeds the 170MPH wind load rating and is certified by Florida Building Code and Texas Department of Insurance. It comes with a 50/5 year limited warranty (50 years against manufacturing defects, 5 years on labor).
For the upscale look without the maintenance worries, today’s cedar shingle solution is Grayne.
