What is Cedar Siding?
Cedar is a softwood that provides optimal insulation and a beautiful home exterior. Consider some of the benefits of cedar siding described below.
The look and style of cedar is really the primary reason homeowners choose it. The iconic wooden appearance is popular in areas across the West. You can choose to stain it or leave it unstained. It comes in many patterns, and you can choose horizontal panels, or shingles and shakes. You can also paint cedar siding if you wish.
Stained cedar siding will require some maintenance. You’ll need to re-stain it every few years. Unstained cedar has a beautiful look, but know that it will get a weathered and worn appearance as the years pass. Both stained and unstained cedar need to be pressure washed each year. You will need to repair or replace the panels/shingles as they become damaged. Painted wood will need to be repainted every few years.
In general, cedar siding will increase your home’s value. It is a popular siding option that homebuyers are looking for.
We will begin building a cost quote for you once we have had a chance to review the home and the scope of the siding project. Cedar siding falls in the mid to high range of siding costs, but homeowners who choose it love the look, durability, insulation and curb appeal that it provides.
Cedar naturally repels insects, pests and rot. It is vulnerable to water damage, so it is essential to maintain the wood and repair damage promptly. It needs to be repainted and/or re-stained every few years to ensure a seal against moisture. Cedar does tend to attract the drilling of woodpeckers. Having said that, cedar stands up well to wind, rain, hail, snow, ice and cold.
