Alright one more time today. Has anyone run across FHA/HUD having problems with the wood shake shingles on an A framed home not being painted? I cannot find any such guideline in the HUD handbook 4150.2. I told him to check with his underwriter while I checked into it as well. His concern is exposed/unpainted wood. Thanks again in advance!!!

"painted" shingles would impede expansion and contraction and ruin the roof. The shingles are not SIDING. They are roof covering...even if it has the affect of siding. Are the ends of the A frame regular siding and is it painted?

Cedar shake shingles are are used both as a siding and a roof covering. Rarely do I see them painted. Some times stained siding, but you still would call that exposed wood. I agree that painted cedar shingles would hasten the deterioration process.:nono:
