I made my annual roof crawl last weekend and replaced 100 or so cedar
I noticed that as these shakes age, the surface exposed to direct rain
wears pretty evenly, while the point on a lower shake where water falls
from an upper shake wears a lot faster. Also, once the drip point
starts to wear, the rest of the shake begins to deteriorate faster.
I'm thinking about taking some clear coat and going along, spraying a
1-inch strip on that drip area to help slow down the erosion at that
Anyone ever run across something like this?
