Cedar siding makes for a beautiful home exterior. Cedar is a tougher wood, compared to traditional wood siding materials. It has natural resistance to mold, mildew, and rot. It does require the occasional cleaning, and keeping an eye out for termites is imperative. You can paint or finish your cedar siding or leave it natural. There are a few different cut options that will add a great look to your home.
The grain pattern and beauty of cedar siding makes it look natural and elegant. While no wood material is completely resistant to the weather or insects, cedar does rank higher than others. To give it even longer life, having a protective finish applied will help. Cedar siding is a fairly good insulator too.
