I had my house shingled a few years ago in the expectation that it would weather into that smooth gray color that you often see on beautiful homes at Cape Cod. Instead the results have been noticeably uneven. Why?

If you allow the siding to weather naturally, without any additional treatment, it is unlikely that you will ever achieve the uniform gray tone you admired. Chances are your siding is experiencing some uneven weathering due to a disproportionate exposure to moisture and sunlight. Fortunately you can buy products which accelerate the weathering process. Applied properly, you can get a uniformed weathered look in 6 – 12 months.
