Dimensionally Stable Wood Grain

5'' Plain Sawn Shingle offers the plain sawn look without cupping or curling

Shingle-a-b-c-Sawn

Grayne Engineered Shake and Shingle is designed after shingles which were made using the plain sawn cut. In this technique all of the saw cuts are on parallel in one direction, resulting in a variety of wood grain patterns.

In natural cedar, the plain sawn cut is not dimensionally stable due to wood performance

Wood expands and contracts with water absorption. New Shingles have a high moisture content, and dry out over time. When the moisture content lowers, the panel will contract, resulting in cupping and curling.

Grayne Curling Graphic

Grayne engineered shake and Shingle one piece panel design provides permanent straight clean lines, and the corners will never curl. This is the appearance you want from shingle cladding.
