It is. What they do not seem to get is, the shape. A saddle is called a saddle because it is shaped like a saddle.

For those of you who say one thing and do something else, you might call this a "Hipacricket"

Re: Flashing Around A Chimney


I would call that a horrible design.

Anyways, how long is thread going to go on. The last 150 posts seem to have no value besides the difference between a cricket and a saddle.

Re: Flashing Around A Chimney


I would call that a chimney coming through the roof.......... But HEY! WhaddIno?


But to go along, to get along, I would call it a chimlee and that picture of a cricket that was labeled a saddle, I would call it a "saddle" too.

Bam Bam-- this thread means more than the difference between a saddle and a cricket. It confirms the public opinion of roofers as idiots

google that

Re: Flashing Around A Chimney


I love the new Domino's pizza. Haha.... but seriously its good. ANYWAY Flash... if a saddle is called a saddle, because it looks like one. Then where did they come up with the term Cricket? I think I will just agree to disagree on fricken dumb saddle cricket nightmare.

Re: Flashing Around A Chimney


Is it a coincidence that a cricket resembles a slice of pizza and that a saddle resembles two slices? I think not.
