No. 1 Grade Blue Label shingles, seen here on a Powers-designed house, are a premium-grade product for roofs and sidewalls. Powers especially likes the way they can be steamed for curved applications. Comprised of 100 percent defect-free heartwood with a 100 percent edge grain, the shingles are manufactured in 16-inch, 18-inch, and 24-inch lengths with a number of thicknesses.
