    Anyone know of a hardware store or lumber yard, in PDX, that will sell a few cedar shakes? Just want to make a couple repairs and have no need for a whole bundle. Thanks!

    Are you looking for split cedar shakes, or smooth faced shingles? I have a bundle or two of split shakes.

    A bundle isn't that expensive.
    Besides, you can save the rest for kindling,...

    Which is why I have always questioned their use on roofs.

    A bundle of split cedar shakes is over $55.00. Tapered shingles are more.
    I belive that's why the OP wants to find a couple left over from someones project.

    Home Depot often has a few laying about from broken bundles...price negotiable.
