Asked by cartmanea August 25, 2020

At my local store in Birmingham, Alabama, these shims don't appear to be northern white cedar. The packaging says made in Canada but does not say anything about what kind of wood it is. There is no aromatic cedar smell at all, but then I don't know if northern white cedar is supposed to be aromatic like the eastern red cedar we have in the south. These are Irving brand like the ones shown on-line, but the wood is whiter than in the on-line picture and the bundles are wrapped in plastic rather than being strapped.

Are shims treated/weatherproof for outdoor use?

Asked by Kent August 24, 2020

Asked by Zoey July 6, 2019

These shims can be used to install doors or windows, e.g. shim out the frame to have it plumb and level.

The Amazing Shrinking Shim
Shims are 1-1/16" wide as opposed to 1-1/4" and are not cedar by any means. We're heading for popsicle stick shims at this rate. Come on we can do better. Please give us a choice of standard width shims.

The picture is misleading
The shims are neither uniform in width, length or thickness, and most are 14 inch long rather then 15 inch. Further, there is no mentioning of the wood type on the package. To me the wood grain of these looks more like pine...
