General Application Details

(go to General Design Details)

Shingle Application

Regardless of style, the following basic application details (Figure 4 below) must be observed.

1) Shingles must be doubled or tripled at all eaves.

2) Butts of first course shingles should project 1½" beyond the fascia.

3) Spacing between adjacent shingles (joints) should be a minimum of ¼" and a maximum of 3/8".

4) Joints in any one course should be separated not less than ½" from joints in adjacent courses; and in any three courses, no two joints should be in direct alignment.

5) In lesser grade shingles containing both flat and vertical grain, joints should not be aligned with centerline of heart.

6) Flat grain shingles wider than 8" should be split in two before nailing. Knots and similar defects should be treated as the edge of the shingle and the joint in the course above placed 1½" from the edge of the defect.

Shake Application

Shakes, like shingles, are normally applied in straight, single courses. The following application details (Figure 5 below) must be observed.

1) The starter course may be one or two layers of cedar shingles or shakes overlaid with the desired shake. A 15" shake is made expressly for starter and finish courses.

2) Butts of first course shakes should project 1½" beyond the fascia.

3) An 18" wide strip of No. 30 roofing felt (or No. 15 felt depending upon code requirements) should be laid over the top portion of the shakes and extend on to the sheathing. The bottom edge of the felt should be positioned above the butt of the shake at a distance equal to twice the weather exposure. For example, 24" shakes laid with 10" exposure would have felt applied 20" above the butt. Thus the felt will cover the top 4" of the shakes and extend up 14" onto the sheathing.

4) Spacing between adjacent shakes should be a minimum of 3/8" and a maximum of 5/8".

5) Joints between shakes should be offset 1½" over adjacent courses.

6) Straight-split shakes should be laid with the froe-end (the end from which the shake has been split and which is smoother) towards the ridge.
