    Default Anyone know what type of wood this is?

    Found this at today's inspection. It went the length of the roof and appeared to be about 3 foot panels that went from eave to eave, also on the interior.

    Yes ... and ... no.

    First the yes ... it is not wood.

    Second the no ... i forgot what that material is called (I have known, and forgotten, what that is called so many times that I quite even trying to remember what it is called but as soon as someone says it I will go 'Oh yeah, that's it.' ).

    I think it is tec something or something tec, maybe Tectum or something like that.

    I am with Jerry on this. I know what it is and it used to be quite popular. Gees, I just almost got it off the tip of the tongue again. That material is the ceiling and roof.

    Thank you all,

    After viewing the Tectum website I am thinking that Tectum III or Tectum E are the panels that were utilized. I was wondering why there was no soffit venting! These panels had wood shakes on the roof.
