Hello. I live in Connecticut and have a 1977 white colonial-style house and the roof needs to be replaced (has 2 layers of asphalt on there now). Though I always dreamed of adding a cedar roof, the pricing and maintenance required (plus insurance etc) has me revisiting asphalt, which I usually don’t love (when I see it on most houses that is).
I would like some ideas for products that replicate the look of a wood shake, particularly the thickness and shadow lines. The best one I have found so far is Certainteed Grand Manor - I like that it is not just thick but uniform. Some of the shingles in this category seem to try to replicate the look by being obviously irregular, and I am not a fan (like Certainteed Presidential).
Thank you for your time and ideas.
