To Make Shingles Durable

What is the best material with which to coat the shingles on my barn


The best coating is a wood preservative, the principal ingredient of

which is creosote. There are several reliable brands of preservatives

and stains that may be had at a cost of about half that of paint. We

must remark also the natural durability of redwood shingles in this

climate if the roof has a good pitch. We reshingled our house roof after

20 years of use and found the shingles so sound that we turned them and

shingled the sides and roof of a shed with them where they promise to be

good for another score of years.
