Replacing cedar shingle roofs. Need help!
We recently had some bad storms go through our area (VA). We had severe winds, hail, trees down, etc.. We have a barn, garage, and barn, which all have cedar shake shingle roofs. The roofs are about 15 y.o.. The barn had a large white oak go through the top of it, and all three suffered hail and wind damage. The insurance company is only paying to repair the damage. Every contractor that has come out to give an estimate, has said that the roofs are within just a few years, if that, of needing replaced. So, I have decided to go on and replace the roofs. The next thing, is that I have received bids for all different roofs. I've decided to get away from cedar shingles, due to cost and maintenance. I have quotes for GAF, CT, IKO, TAMKO, cedar, and metal. Because I've previously have had cedar, I was looking at CT Solaris, which reflects the solar rays, and is cooler. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Am I heading in the right direction??
