The Untreated Alternative® to cedar shingles

Tropical Timberwoods Inc. introduces Turada® hardwood shingles that will add a touch of rustic elegance to your projects. These real wood shingles are aesthetically pleasing, highly durable and complement the cross-section where quality and beauty intersect. They meet a Class "A" Fire Rated Roof System (untreated) and require zero maintenance. They turn from a reddish tone to a majestic silver patina hue, and installation is no different from that of traditional cedarwood shingles. For an authentic classic, rustic look and long-term protection, there is no substitute. For more information, visit or call (855) 4Turada (488-7232).
