These laser cut simulated Siding Shingles come on two sheets to a package. The strips are permanent self-adhesive, just peel and stick, real easy to install. The shingles are 12" wide and have a 6" gutter between. When installed they take on a true 3D appearance just like the real ones. With a light painting of alcohol/India ink solution the shingles take on a nice aged appearance, a little more, more aging, it's all up to you. Check the photo at top, half is stained the other half is not.
NOTE: the package contains sheets of laser cut strips of shingles that need to be layered up just like real shingles. These are not per-layered sheets.
Shingles are laser cut from a heavy wood fiber content paper and resemble wood or asphalt shingles very well.
You get 2 sheets that measure 4 inches wide by 12 inches long. With a 50% overlap the shingles would cover the area of a single sheet. The two sheets have approximately 90 square inches of shingles which will cover approximately 45 square inches of area.
While these shingles are designed mainly for use on exterior walls of buildings they can also be used on the roof to give a very decorative designed touch.
