Save considerable construction time with pre-manufactured hip & ridge caps
Hip & ridge units are pre-manufactured caps for hips and ridges made from number one grade cedar shingles. Their use makes considerable savings in construction time. Each unit is fastened together by 2 staples which allow sufficient flexibility to accommodate a range of pitches. Cappings should be laid with alternate bevels and concealed nailing. Weather exposures should be at the same gauge as the field of the roof. For additional weatherproofing install a strip of Type IF roofing felt under the capping.
Width: - 7" (175mm) minimum (measured over the top at the butt end)
Bundle - Hip & ridges are supplied in bundles of 36 units; 18 left-hand and 18 right-hand bevels.

The PEFC Council is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organisation founded in 1999 which promotes sustainably managed forests through independent third party certification. The PEFC provides an assurance mechanism to purchasers of wood and paper products that they are promoting the sustainable management of forests.
PEFC works throughout the entire forest supply chain to promote good practice in the forest and to ensure that timber and non-timber forest products are produced with respect for the highest ecological, social and ethical standards. Thanks to its eco-label, customers and consumers are able to identify products from sustainably managed forests.

Yellow Cedar is the ultimate green building material. It is legally, responsibly and sustainably harvested in the publicly managed forests of British Columbia, Canada. Less than 1% of standing timber is harvested each year.
For each tree harvested, three are replanted to ensure the forests will exist in perpetuity. Yellow Cedar has a low impact on the environment throughout its life cycle. It requires significantly less energy to produce than man-made alternatives and is bio-degradable.
