Love the cedar shingles. Can you tell me what color the stain is? Beautiful!

It is a custom dye/stain to make them look like the natural driftwood color once weathered.

You can call Cabot customer service and they can advise you how to achieve this look.

Great, thanks for the info. I thought it looked like Cabot's Dune Gray but hard to tell in a picture. We have cedar shingles that we will need to re-stain shortly and also use Cabot semi-transparent stains. Do you have a specific contact at Cabot that I could get? It helps to work with the same person if possible.

I do not. I would just call the customer service and ask how you make the shingles look like the cape cod houses. It is 1/2 bleach (not dye, I spoke incorrectly) and 1/2 a specific color.

Good luck!

Hey Paul....I just saw this house featured in Traditional Home....Stunning!! Can you give me advice...I'm building this style in Dallas. Should I use a faux shake? Do you recommend any that look good...this style is not built often at all here. I'm worried that real Cedar will be hard to maintain....your thoughts???

Hi Jen -

I would not use faux shake. Cedar is a bit of maintenance but you can't beat its richness. I don't think you will achieve this look if you don't use real wood.
Thank you for the kind words and good luck with your house.
