Transcript DESIGN NO. 1 2 — An excellent example of the use of Red Cedar Shingles for the exterior finish of a country home, farm or suburban estate. Walls and roof are all of Red Cedar Shingles. Architectural Staining and Upkeep Red Cedar Shingles may be stained in a wide range of colors and tones for architectural effect — dove grays, soft whites, light golds, moss green, golden browns, deep browns, walnut tones, reddish browns and distinctive reds; all are readily applied and permanently retained by the Red Cedar Shingle. The market is plentifully supplied with excellent ready-mixed shingle stains. Red Cedar Shingles do not rot, rust The Red Cedar Shingle in its natural state, unstained, "weathers" a beautiful gray, blending with the surrounding foliage, flowers, lawn and sky. Stained Red Cedar Shingles do not require the upkeep and maintenance attention of the painted home, they at all times retain the beauty of the grain of the Cedar DESIGN NO. 1 3—A semi-bungalow type, with red cedar shingles, very popular, with liberal main and upper floor plans. The sweep and breadth of the roof scheme adds to the striking character of this very distinctive home. A Good Roof Demands Good Workmanship A roof to be as good and lasting as "Rite-Grade Inspected" Red Cedar Shingles requires good workmanship in laying. The shingles should be carefully nailed and stained in the most approved manner, all of which is explained on page two of this booklet. Then you'll retain the permanent long life of the Red Cedar Shingle. It is important also that your contractor use heavily galvanized pure iron or best quality old- style tin valleys—they will not rust out. Remember, a roof is only as strong as its weakest part, and the weakest part may be some inexpensive trifle that will destroy the more costly investment. "Rite- Grade Inspected" Red Cedar Shingles are practically imperishable— have the workmanship and other materials in keeping. Red Cedar Shingles
