Transcript DESIGN NO. 6- stained deep red green foliage. This roof of Red Cedar Shingles i producing a heavy horizontal shadi laid in "tiers" or molded w at about two-foot intervals. U. Use Rust-Proof Metal ly galvanized pure iron valleys, they will not rust in a short time; or use best quality old-style tin; use "rust-proof" nails. A roof is only as strong as its weakest part—red cedar shingles are practically "rot-proof." Have the workmanship and other materials of the same good quality. Different Grades for Different Purposes subjected to hardesl ; Perfects, Extra Cle; • and serv- r XXXXX It is on the roof, that shingles ice. Only shingles of Rite-Grade grades should be used for this purpose. But on the side of a home or other building, a thinner shingle will provide equal beauty and protection. Rite-Grade Extra Stars and XXX grades of shingles can be used for this purpose at a material saving in cost. Red Cedar Shini DESIGN NO. 7—A prettily and well designed Bungalow, without attic. Notice the big expansive center window and the attractive climbing roses. The walls of Red Cedar Shingles are stained brown with cream trimmings. Porch follows out the pergola effect. The plan has many good qualities evidently designed to suit the owner. Nothing to Crumble or Crack When "Rite-Grade Inspected" Red Cedar Shingles are used as siding there's nothing to crumble. Every one can recall having seen stucco or concrete sided buildings, with large cracks or areas where the stucco has crumbled and fallen. A Red Cedar Shingle siding will last as long as the nail that holds it in position—the better the nail the longer lived the home. Red Cedar Shingle siding can be stained to conform with any desired color effect, yet retaining the beauty of grain or "penciling" of the wood itself.
