Replace part of Cedar roof with a matching Shingle

I have a cedar roof- probably 30 years old. we put on an addition about 7 years ago and matched the cedar. Now we need to replace the older roof and want to use an architectural shingle, in the hope that it will be cheaper and easier to install. What product is out there, and how do I match the weathered look of the shingle in terms of texture and color? Thanks so much

Taking of cedar and putting back asphalt is always a bit sad to see.

You really loose a good bit of the look of the home when you ditch the shakes.

Have you considered a metal roof?

Could also go with a faux slate roof. There made out of recycled tires and looks exactly like real slate.
