Same Victorian house. Thinking of doing the barn inwooden shingles vs. new clapboards. I wondered aboutthe maintenance and the cost factor of the two.
I am building a 3,500 square foot home on the beach/ocean in Long Island, NY. After completion
the value of the home will be about 2 million
dollars. I am not certain what type of material
should be used. Some suggest wooded other suggest asphalt. I am concerned about devaluating the
home with an inferior product. What do you suggest?
I have an exterior archway that I need to install wooden shingles under the curved arch. What type of shingles is best, do I need to soak the shingles in water to get them to bend? If you have any insight please forward a response.
