Renewing and re-beautifying the old stucco house has long been

and highly satisfactory solution.
It makes your house look absolutely like a new house. It adds
amazingly to its warmth and comfort, and there is no costly re

is extensively used and entirely practical. The illustration shows
the basis of the method. Foundation strips are first nailed to the
wall and provide a solid anchorage for the Red Cedar Shingles.
The air-space between walls and shingles provides added insula
tion against the passage of heat and cold, while the shingles
themselves are among the most effective insulation materials
RED CEDAR METHOD of re-roofing will also interest
you. The new Red Cedar Shingles are laid right over the old roof.
No litter—protection during shingling—added beauty—greater
home comfort—these are some of the advantages.
Call or phone for illustrated circulars on the
RED CEDAR METHOD of home renewal.
