Need to match a 50 year old cedar shingle siding
I reconstructed an exterior wall and want to match the appearance of an adjacent wall which has 60 year old cedar shingles on it. I'd rather use a cement fiber product but can not find an appearance that has an 11 inch reveal pattern like the wood shingles. The shingles have an up and down slight "combed" texture (maybe an 1/8 inch depth) and are around 15 inches in length and have no visible seam between shingles, implying either that thay were a panel-like product themselves or the original installer butted them and finished them so it looks seamless as you look across the wall at them. Even if I opted to go with a cedar material, I can't find a similar texture in the bundles they sell as A-1 rated cedar at building supply stores (they are flat pieces of wood with no texture). Any matching ideas and where to get it?
