I would recommend obtaining shingles that are dipped in stain. This takes care of warping and future painting problems. If you stain after install, you are only getting 1/4 of the shingle covered (at best, 1/6 at worst).

The best supplier of white cedar shingles dipped in stain at the factory is Maibec. They make them in many shapes.
