Insects will not live in Red Cedar Shingles. Rats will not gnaw them. Moths have a known dislike for Red Cedar. It is fragrant under all weather conditions. Thus the Red Cedar Shingle answers admirably the requirements of sanitation. There is today no sanitary substitute for "Rite-Grade Inspected" Red Cedar Shingles. Some day a low cost artificial material may be found to replace wooden shingles, but hundreds of manufacturers have lost thousands of dollars in the past trying to find it, and when it is found, it will not have to be put on by legislation. DESIGN NO. 15—An attractive Bungalow exemplifying the use of dimension shingles for the walls. Note the very attractive roof lines, so peculiarly adapted to Red Cedar Shingle construction. This is a substantial type of modest home with good-sized living room and fireplace, the attractive rock work harmonizes most agreeably with the Red Cedar Shingle walls. Ideal for Siding A perusal of this booklet thoroughly convince you that from a standpoint of beauty, without considering other exc< lent qualities, Red Cedar Shi gles are ideal for siding. Add to this architectural attractiveness, their long life and neglig ible maintenance cost and you indeed have the answer as to why Red Cedar Shingles are becoming increasingly popular for siding or walls.
