I recently purchased an older home with beautiful cedar shakes. Unfortunately, the shakes run all the way to ground level. Not only is it a problem that they are in contact with the ground, but we will actually end up burying them under soil when we regrade our yard if they are not removed.
What is the best way to remove the entire two bottom rows of cedar shakes? I can find information on how to remove a single shake, but am wondering if there is a better way I can do our entire house at once.
