These are cedar shakes with a clear oil finish. For the best durability, have them dipped so that both sides are sealed before installation.

Knee braces support the front and side gables on this Northwest shingle home.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Clues to Finding the Right Color for Your House
Hand in hand with a change in color is a change in texture. Different materials just tend to want to be finished in different ways. Flatter, more planar stucco wants to be bright and lively, while more heavily textured shingles want to be more natural and earth toned.And do separate the parts at a logical point — say, the window head or sill. Doing so will give an order and structure to the whole.
