Nichiha Sierra Premium Shake: Form and Function Perfected

nichiha sierra premium shake

Just imagine your new home completed with beautiful fiber cement shake.

Fiber cement shake is an increasingly popular roofing material thanks to its combination of natural beauty and maintenance-free longevity. As manufacturing processes improve and companies master the art of creating fiber cement that can look great and perform, the customer is the one reaping the benefits. One of the biggest benefits has been the advent of the Nichiha Sierra Premium shake.  


The Sierra Premium shake has a half-inch construction that bolsters its durability and helps protect your home while ensuring it lasts. The thickness of the shake helps resistance to rotting, warping, pest concerns and delamination, while creating dramatic curb appeal. A four-part finish starts with sealer and primer to ensure moisture stays out. Next comes the sandstone base coat infused with PPG’s pigmentation that helps provide critical protection for the fiber cement. Finally, the shake is given two coats of semi-transparent finish to help protect against the elements.


Being a half-inch thick and having a four-part finish isn’t just great for the Sierra’s durability, but it helps create beautiful textures and shadows that add depth. The shake comes in three pre-finished color options, terra, shadow, and hazelnut, or simply primed. These color options make the most of the products’ construction while sticking to traditional shake’s colors for a best of both worlds combination.
