white cedar shakes


I live in Western NY and have a 50 year old house that I just finished residing about 3/4 of it. It was red cedar shsakes with fiberbacker board. I located teh backboard at a local lumber yard, it was 50 bucks for bundle, I think it was 20 pieces each 48 inches in length to a bundle. I think using the backerboard would save alot of time and extra nailing compared to using shakes, but as for longetivity I cant comment on the 2 differences.

Here is a pic of the pattern my house used, I just kept with the original 14 inch exposure. I used 2 inch stainless steel ring shank and they are holding very well, even into the original 3/8" sheathing.
