    These shingles by NuCedar Mills offer the same warmth, texture and variance of natural wood because they're milled (not molded), tapered and squared. And while they may look like lumber, these vinyl shingles won’t absorb any water, are impervious to insects, and can withstand 200 mph winds.

  2. Cool and Quiet
