Code-Perfect Joint Placement

Just Match the Numbers from Course to Course for Perfect Joint Placement


Cedar shingle siding is the only conventional siding that is sufficiently weatherproof that it also provides excellent roofing. Shingle systems are unique in that they provide 3 layers of weather barriers, and each layer redirects precipitation back to the surface. However, cedar shingles must be installed properly to provide this higher level of protection.


Codes for installing cedar shingle roofing require that all joints in the next two courses be offset from the joints in the current course. The minimum offset for adjacent courses is 1-1/2 inches. Meeting this requirement, when installing cedar shingles conventionally, is very tedious and time consuming, and is often ignored or compromised, resulting in leaks.
