Cedar Shingle, Shake or Standing Seam Metal Roof?
Another question for the 1860s cut stone farm house in Ontario.
We have to make some roofing decisions in the next year and we are struggling with the choice between cedar (which was probably the original material) or standing seam metal.
If we choose cedar, I have read so many divergent things about the quality & longevity of both shake and shingle, and that shingle NOT shake was probably not used on houses in the 1860s...
I'd be so grateful if you could share your experiences and thoughts about the choice especially if you could shed some light on the diverse opinions about maintaining a cedar roof.
