Work Smarter, Not Harder.

With our new Easy Installation Tool, installing shakes & shingles has never been faster and easier!

Say “goodbye” to all those extra nail holes to color-match and fill; so long measuring, leveling and snapping chalk lines on every course after course after course…

SBC innovates again with its Easy Installation Tool that can help you install shingles & shakes up to three times faster than with traditional methods!

It works on both sidewall and roofing, with wood (white and red cedar) and composite shingles.

Install Shakes and Shilgles up to 3X Faster!

It's as easy as 1-2-3!

  • Step 1
    Install your first double course row of shingles as you normally would, and then slide
    the Easy Installation Tools retention legs up under the top course row.
  • Step 2
    Insert your ledger board (pre-ripped to desired course width exposure)
    into the Easy Installation Tools.
  • Step 3
    Using top edge of ledger board as your guide, install next course of shingles.
    Then simply remove and reinstall the Easy Installation Tools and ledger board as you move across and up the wall or roof, adjusting your level as needed – using fine-tuning knobs and built-in measure.

Tips for adjusting the tooth

Different finishes and hardness of wood shingles, or different course heights will cause the anchor tooth to either slide down or sometimes be too tight to insert under your course of shingles. If the Installation Tool is slipping, place the anchor leg of the jig with tooth down on a soft block of wood and tap the inside of the tooth with a nailset. This will cause the tooth to protrude more, giving it a better bite. If the installation tool is too tight, place the anchor leg on a soft block of wood, tooth facing up. Tap the tooth with a hammer to decrease its size, making it easier to install.
