Coverage Rate Information:
• When using double coursing, this product has a maximum exposure of 14".
• When using Single coursing, this product has a maximum exposure of 8".
Single Coursing Vs. Double Coursing Application Methods:
• Using the single coursing application method, they are installed with one layer of shingles per run.
• Using the double coursing method, two shingles are installed on top of each other on every layer. This method allows more of the face of each shingle to be exposed, providing more square footage of coverage from each box of shingles. Double exposure application also saves money on material and produces a more noticeable shadow line.
Estimating Cedar Shingles:
1. Start by measuring the amount of square footage you have to cover.
2. Each box will vary in the amount of completed coverage it will yield based on the width of exposure you choose. Exposure is the height in inches of the shingle face not covered by the next shingle course. Generally, the wider the exposure, the more coverage you will get from the box.
3. Using the chart above, identify the amount of coverage per box at your desired exposure.
4. Divide the square footage of coverage needed by the square footage per box value that you just selected from the chart.
Example: 500 square feet of wall needs to be covered using #1 grade perfection cedar sidewall shingles. The highest level of exposure is desired; therefore, the shingles should be installed as a double course with a 14" exposure. At a 14" exposure, each box of shingles should yield 100 square feet of coverage. So, divide the 500 square feet of wall coverage by the 100 square feet of coverage per box. At this exposure, 5 boxes should be needed to complete the job.
