Cedar Ridge cap units are pre-manufactured caps for hips and ridges made from number one grade cedar shingles and tapper sawn shakes. 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.
The appropriate hip and ridge unit should be selected to match the adjacent shingles or shakes. However, in many areas a taper sawn hip and ridge units are used on both shingle and shake applications.
Cedar fascia is an architectural term for a vertical frieze or band under a roof edge, or which forms the outer surface of a cornice, visible to an observer. The horizontal "fascia board" which caps the end of rafters outside a building may be used to hold the rain gutter. The finished surface below the fascia and rafters is called the soffit or eave.
