Preservation Skills Workshop: Cedar Shingle Roof

May 19 @ 8:30 am - May 20 @ 6:00 pm

Preservation Skills Workshop:
How to Replace a Historic Cedar Shingle Roof

During this two-day workshop we will undertake the replacement of cedar shingle roofing on the Crystal Diamond Springhouse, a small one-story stone building built in the 1850s to house the magnesium spring. Guided by two building professionals with over 70 years of experience between them, participants will strip the existing cedar shingles and remove them to be composted on site, repair the existing wood lath, and install new western red cedar taper-sawn shakes. The hands-on work will be accompanied by instruction in the use of wood shingle roofing materials historically and its appropriate use in historic preservation today, including design choices like shake vs. shingle, amount of exposure and minimum pitch.
