Replace cedar roof with cedar or more durable material?
The original cedar shingle roof on our home has finally bit the dust (50+ years). We love the look of cedar, but some say that a new cedar roof won't last as long as the original, it needs maintenance, and it is a fire hazard. Is that true? We're trying to decide if we should just go with cedar anyway, use fire-retardant-treated cedar, Enviroshake, or just go to an asphalt shingle. Not knowing anything about roofing materials, we'd like to know what would others suggest?
