Mr Dromard then removes the bark and cuts them into quarters with an axe. Then, each quarter is divided into fine slices with a maul and slitting iron. The “wooden tile” obtained from this can then be touched up to be the same thickness all over. The shingle is held in a wood clamp and worked with a knife or small axe. The shingles are applied to roofs and building walls in the summer, edge to edge, and fixed in place with two galvanised nails. The company is located in the region of the Haut-Jura, a region with a tradition in shingle-making. Mr Dromard uses local spruce wood. He took part in developing a charter of good practice with the Haut-Jura Nature Park and plays a role in maintaining local heritage: the “Musée des maisons comtoises in Nancray”, the Chaux-Neuve Church, the Maison du parc Naturel du Haut-Jura, etc. Mr Dromard also works on projects for private customers and companies.
