naturally weathered eastern cedar shingles vs weathering stain

6 years ago

i am leaning toward letting the shingles naturally weather but i really want the silver/gray look and am worried it is going to take too long. we are by the water. i don't mind the lack of consistency in the weathering look. but again, i am concerned about the number of years it will take to get the look i like.

i've read about bleaching and weathering stains. bleaching stains i think will lighten the shingles more than i willl like. not sure if i like the weathering stains because they are so consistent.

any thoughts on how natural the weathering stain looks and how long the natural weathering process takes???

thank you!
