Wood shingle roof and an energy retrofit
I have a wood roof to replace on a 300-year-old house in a historical district. The house is also in serious need of an energy retrofit.
Wood is more expensive (the HD Commission has a record of approving asphalt based on cost, so it is a choice), but may provide options not found with asphalt or other coverings, since, by design, shingles and skip sheathing must dry to the outside; sheathing condensation issue evaporates.
Any thoughts/research about how to best use this advantage?
