Western Red Cedar Shingles from Marley Eternit are a truly renewable and sustainable roofing and cladding material; with one of the lowest carbon footprints of any widely used building product. They are light for transport, and therefore also make savings in supporting structures; they also offer a high degree of thermal insulation. JB Shingles can also be treated with a clear preservative treatment, MicroPro®, to retain the natural look of cedar.

Here at Marley Eternit, we are always on hand to offer practical and experienced support.
