no more wooden shingles

WE have a older home that had wooden shingles for about 35 years. Without any air conditioning and only a fireplace for warmth,we were quite comfortable. And then along came the insurance people and the short of it is we now have a asfault shingled roof. It is very cold in the winter and unbearable inthe summer. Are living room has a vaulted ceiling so we can't do much on insulation in that part of the house. Please help is there some kind of coating or some false ceiling at a reasonable price. WE now have air-conditioning and central heating, it just dos'nt work well. Hey out there any ideas. We are miserable. Thanks in Advance Jackie

I don't know what kind of vaulted ceiling you have. There are several different kinds. One thing you might think about is putting blocking on your vaulted ceiling, frame it, insulate it and then sheetrock it. I did that to mine. Does this sound like it might work ?
