When installing cedar roof shingles, homeownerís may sometimes be able to place the new cedar shingles over existing roofing material.  Cedar shingles are durable and may resist insect damage.  Cedar shingles are smooth and provide the home with a rustic appearance.

Before you begin, make sure that you have chosen a fair weather day.  Avoid installing cedar roof shingles, or any other roofing material, if it is raining.  Begin installation at the bottom and work your way to the top.First, apply building paper to the entire roof deck.  When placing the first shingle onto the structure, take special care to ensure that the thick end of the shingle is pointing down toward the ground.  When installing cedar roof shingles, itís advisable to use 2 rust-resistant nails per shingle.  cedar roof shinglesMake sure that the nail is placed 4" up from the thick of the shingle and 1" from each side.  Wood naturally expands from moisture and, when installing cedar roofing shingles, each shingle should have up to a ľ" gap between itself and the neighboring shingles.  With each shingle added, make sure that each lines up properly with itís neighbor.   If you should have an excess piece of shingle on one end of the roof, trim it to fit.
