Hi. We moved into our house last summer and need to paint it this year.
It has cedar shakes which are in very good shape. Lots of peeling on everything other than the shakes though.

Can anyone offer advice on how to prep and paint cedar shakes? For example, do I need to scrape, prime, then paint? I heard that shakes can't be powerwashed for fear of loosening the shakes.

Appreciate any advice. Thanks.
