My grandparents had a shake roof pressure washed. The results were fantastic, but the home was not nearly as old as yours. Painting cedar is always risky, as it is an oily wood, it doesn't seem to hold paint well. That problem is compounded by the fact it is shingles on a surface that gets ALL the weather. If the shingles are as old as the house, they have served it well, and thier life may be over. If not, I reccomend a professional pressure wash. Hot water with high pressure and lots of water volume. Good Luck
