Sconset Residnece

This project, located in the heart of the village of SiaSconset, Nantucket, MA, followed strict design requirement for the exterior architecture, as all new building and alterations to existing buildings are reviewed by Historic District Commission, a local governmental review board. The vernacular of the neighborhood leaned towards Victorian, so the design embraced the shingle-style.

what color are the shingles and brand?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
We are building an oceanfront home on the jersey shore. We are planning on using white cedar shingles without any treatment. Would they grey and weather like the homes in Nantucket? Have you been happy with the bardobec shingles. Builders here use malibec shingles but the warantee is void if the shingles are not treated. Bleaching oil dipped shingles are fairly standard here but they do need refinishing every 5-7 years.

Yes. Maibec and Bardobec are both used here and good quality. Both will turn gray when left natural to weather.

Thank you for your question. Almost all houses on Nantucket use white cedar shingles for sidewall and red cedar on the roof. As far as the sidewall, these shingles are untreated and do not have a "color". New shingles have a more yellow look, and as they weather they turn silver gray. After a few years they turn a dark gray. These shingles should last 15-25 years when installed properly. These shingles in particular are made by Bardobec Inc. and are Grade A "Extra" . These roof shingles are red cedar and are fire treated because of this house's location. Again, they are grade A extras, left natural to weather.
