The Advantages of Hand Dipped Shingles
All cedar shingles need to be air dried prior to hand dipping. Hand dipping ensures penetration of the stain into the cell structure of each shingle. This penetration helps hold the stain for a long lasting finish, while air drying ensures that the oil and tanin within the shingles are evenly distributed to avoid discolouration and tanin bleeding.
Air dried, hand dipped shingles always perform better with a tighter spacing because your shingle will not be able to soak up moisture which can cause shingles to warp, crack, and the blistering of a painted finish.
