Synthetic vs. Cedar Shakes
Our 30 year old roof is in need of replacing...no leaks but the shakes are looking pretty tatty.
Our neighbour surprised us by re-roofing his place in standard asphalt shingles. I have to say, they look awful compared to the shake roof. I was surprised at the difference.
In our house, the roof is even more "present" as a design feature. I take it asphalt shingles are stunningly less expensive than cedar shakes or synthetic shakes?
Could someone give me an idea of how they all compare in terms of cost?
