Cedar Shingles Directly Over Rigid
Continuation of previous thread…It is difficult to resurrect an old thread….See above link for previous discussion.
Has anyone tried using typar w/ homeslicker (or the TYvek Drain Wrap product) over the rigid and attaching the shingles directly over the typar, fastened through the rigid back to the sheathing w/ 2.5″ ring shank nails?
JLC had an article with this application a few months back except they were only using 1″, which has been noted in this discussion as not appropriate for this climate. They list the upcharge as being 9-10k (not clear if that only accounts for rigid, sealing rigid and building paper or if it also includes cost for new window trim). The estimate seems pretty high if is only includes material and labor directly related to the rigid and wrb.
Any thoughts on how this system might perform…curious how the shingles would hold up if the “bite” of the fastening is 1 3/4″ back….
