We provide 2 types of vinyl shakes - RoughSawn Cedar, and Hand-Split Shake. Both are quality lifetime warranted products from Nailite®. Roughsawn Cedar is a more refined look, while Hand-Split Shake is more rugged split look. Both look amazing.

Nailite® vinyl shakes offer all the beauty of roughsawn or hand split wood shake siding without the painting, extensive labor, maintenance, and hassle wood shake brings with it.

Nailite profiles are so realistic that we challenge you to tell the difference between them and real cedar. That’s because the templates are created using real cedar, producing near-perfect replications.

Roughsawn Cedar gives the old-time look of cedar cut with a circular saw. This provides a slightly more sophisticated look, but takes nothing away from the true-to-life realism that defines Nailite Shakes.

Hand-Split Shake goes for a much more untamed look. The rugged appearance of Hand-Split Shake is captured in its 8-3/4-inch shingle exposure that showcases deeply-grained panels that have as much personality and presence as the stately cedar trees they mimic.

Undeniable quality. That's what Nailite® is about. These shakes are some of this thickest in the vinyl shake industry, with a strength that makes other shakes envious.



Great Color Selection

With 19 colors available in RoughSawn Cedar, and 13 colors in Hand-Split Shake, Nailite® has a color to accent every home. From a great selection of solid tone colors to the more exotic blended premium colors, you don't have to settle for just any color.

A Lifetime of Beauty

Nailite® carries one of the best products in the industry, backed by a Lifetime Warranty. No more wondering if you can depend on it in the coming years.

Tuff-Rib Panel Profile
Taking Realism to the Next Level

The templates used to form Nailite® Shakes are created using real cedar. Because sometimes nature does it best. From the truly random finished look to the vibrant colors that go all the way through the shakes, Nailite® is as realistic looking as vinyl shakes come.

In an independent consumer survey, 91% of respondents selected Nailite's polypropylene products over real wood shingles for appearance, quality, and durability features.

Save Compared to Real Wood

Nailite® Shakes offer a considerable cost savings over real wood, with lower material and labor costs. In addition, because it's maintenance free, you'll also save considerably on costs such as painting, staining, or refinishing associated with real wood shake siding.

Best Buy Metal Roofing's staff is there to help you, on small or large siding projects, we'll be glad to be of service. Let us work with you on your project to figure out what you need.

"I just wanted to let you know about the Nailite RoughSawn siding on the home we just built. I had the entire house done with this product and we really love it. We moved in February and there hasn't been a week that goes by that I haven't had somebody remark about the siding. People stop me in the yard or come to the door and ask me all about the siding. The siding really makes our house unique. Thanks for a really neat product."
Patrick F. - Michigan

"I wanted you to see the wonderful difference your siding made on our home. We've had people stop and stare and say how beautiful it is. I work at a local newspaper and told different contractors about the siding. They had to stop by the house and see for themselves and were very excited about it. You'll be sure to get more orders. Thank you again for the great product."
Barbara F. - North Carolina

"I e-mailed you in January asking questions about Nailite siding. Well, my house is about 75% done now and I had to let you know what is going on!! The people in my town are going bananas over it!! I told you that I live in a quiet residential neighborhood, but the street I live on is the only way to enter a large city park. So we get a lot of traffic this time of year because of all the kids playing summer baseball. My neighbor said she is getting tired of having to slam on her brakes all the time when she gets in front of my house because everyone slows down to look and see how it's coming along! She said at first she thought maybe a kid or pet had run into the street, then she realized that everyone was gawking at my house! I've had complete strangers come up to my front door and ask if they can touch my siding. I thought there would be some interest in this but it has exceeded even my expectations! I chose the Weathered White Shake shingle because I have a Cape Cod-style house, and it is turning out fantastic."
Donna G. - Ohio

"I saw the photo contest for houses showcasing the Nailite products. I completed my house over nearly three years ago but utilized the roughsawn cedar, sunset cedar product and absolutely love the product. The bank appraiser actually mistakenly listed the house as having wood shingle siding! Am I still eligible for the contest even after 3 years? "
Mark T. - Rhode Island

Dear Nailite, I'll be sending some photos of our house soon. We've been in it for a few months now, and still are impressed with the handsplit Nailite shakes. We've built a timber frame home on top of a mountain in north Georgia. From the outside, there is no way anyone could know what the inside is. With the weathered white shake, and a cranberry steel roof, and a great deal of glass, the outside is a perfect blend with the natural surroundings. It's amazing the number of people that have criticized me for building such a "high maintenance" home as cedar shakes. I love it. They're always astonished that they couldn't recognize what it really is. My builder was equally impressed, and although he had never used the product, I insisted on it, and he has since recommended it to other custom home owners. Thanks for a great product. I've pointed several people to your site."
Ken - Jasper, GA

"We began construction of a new home in Atmore. Alabama in Spring 2004. We had decided to use Certainteed vinyl cedar siding based on a relative's use of it. We saw your product (RoughSawn Cedar) on the model home at the Atlanta Home Show and were sold on it instead. I remember the promise that it will withstand hurricane force winds. We were 6 weeks from moving in when Hurricane Ivan hit Atmore, doing immeasurable damage. Not one piece of siding moved. As luck would have it, the paths of Ivan and Dennis (a couple of weeks ago) crossed at Atmore. Again, no siding damage. The damage around town will support the claim that these were no weenie winds. Your sales rep's claim stood the test. Oh, by the way, it looks great too. We love our siding."
S. Marsh, Atmore, Alabama
