    We at Cedar Valley offer a western red cedar shingle panel that makes installation easier and quicker than traditional hand shingles. We offer factory staining as well in a wide range of colors, one of which is Driftwood Grey. Give us a call at 800.521.9523 if you have any questions or would like a sample of our product.

    What if you already have a 1-car garage with little storage above and want to make it into a 2-car garage with a room above? Would that be over $100k?

    It might be over $100k but too hard to predict without knowing specifics on existing conditions and local market. Again I would suggest consulting with a local architect.

    It depends on exposure to weather, sun, etc. Our experience in midwest climate is that it needs to be recoated every 5-7 yrs. It is a Cabot semi solid stain so best to consult with them for specific life expectancy of their products.

    I love that stain-out of all the cabot colors, its my favorite. But my contractor says to go with a solid because it lasts longer...... pondering.

    Garage doors are painted cedar. The paint color was custom mix to match the siding stain which is Cabot 'Driftwood Grey'. The siding stain is semi solid and has weathered so looks slightly different than the door color which is a solid color paint.
