Turada Shingles operates all aspects of its forestry operations in accordance with international and national conventions and regulations. We understand that healthy forestry practices are essential to the longevity of our industry. We support biodiversity and work with local government agencies to promote efficient, low impact logging to ensure sustainable forest management.

Turada® Hardwood Shingles are made from Wallaba “a tropical hardwood” and are produced in a state of the art factory in Guyana. The shingles are a green building product that requires no chemical treatment, and no adverse effects on the environment in which they are installed.



Love the classic look of cedar shingles? Homeowners have opted for our Turada® Hardwood Shingles as a replacement for cedar because of their great aesthetic appeal. Turada® Hardwood Shingles will also add a touch of rustic elegance to your home or vacation cabins.

These shingles are highly durable and complement the cross-section where quality and beauty intersect. Unlike cedar shingles, Turada® Hardwood Shingles do not need to be treated and excel in severe weather locations. As well, as Turada® Hardwood Shingles age they lose their reddish tone and take on a Silver hue, further enhancing the rustic appearance of your roof.



Turada® Hardwood Shingles can give your home a classic rustic look while offering long-term protection for your roof. Turada® Hardwood Shingles are taper-sawn, 100% clear, 100% heartwood, and are naturally resistant to insects and decay. They are significantly stronger than traditional Cedar or Southern Yellow Pine.

They are suitable for any climate and have withstood category 5 hurricane winds. Not only are the Turada® Hardwood Shingles an attractive alternative to cedar shingles, but they also provide extra insulation with a higher R-Value (in comparison to other roofing products) and in most cases can be installed over existing roofing.



Turada® Hardwood Shingles are long lasting with a lifespan of over 50 years. The shingles also have the highest Fire-Resistance Rating and meet a Class “A, B or C” Fire Rated Roof System per ASTM E108 with absolutely no chemical treatment.

With world recognition, Turada® Hardwood Shingles have been used internationally with great success, are a first choice of architects and designers around the world, and are now available in the United States.
