Why Choose Cedar Siding?

Choosing cedar shingle siding or cedar shake siding for your home has a number of great benefits. Let’s take a look at each one of these benefits so that you can learn more about cedar siding, and see why it’s such a great choice for your remodel.

  • Natural beauty – Natural wood is beautiful, and natural cedar is truly breathtaking. The wood grain and natural depth of color provided by cedar will instantly set your home apart from the rest. Whether you are looking for a sleek, streamlined cedar siding product or more rustic cedar shakes, you can make your home look truly unique and one-of-a-kind with cedar siding. Compared to vinyl, cedar shake siding has a warmth, beauty and natural appeal that just can’t be beaten.
  • Enhanced longevity – Western Red Cedar and other comparable cedar products last a very long time, even when compared to other types of siding like vinyl siding and aluminum siding. Cedar naturally resists rot, decay and insects like termites, as well as other microbes like algae and mildew that can cause the breakdown of other types of wood, or even composite materials. Real cedar siding also will never fade or become damaged due to sun exposure – unlike vinyl and composite materials. With the proper finishing coat and sealant, cedar siding can look great even when exposed to the elements for decades. Even better, it can always be sanded and refinished to restore its original appearance, even if it’s been damaged and weathered – unlike vinyl and composite siding!
  • Green & eco-friendly – Cedar is a natural product, and can be harvested sustainably to reduce its impact on the environment. Minimal processing is required to create shingles, shakes and siding from cedar, making it environmentally-friendly. Even when its lifespan ends and the shingles must be removed from your home, they do not have to go to a landfill – they can decompose naturally!
  • Available in an enormous range of styles – Cedar shakes and siding can be purchased in a variety of different styles. From modern to rustic, you can find a style that suits you. You can purchase naturally-colored cedar that you can stain to your own specifications, or find a pre-stained product that is perfect for your home. When it comes to choosing the right style for your home, the sky’s the limit!
  • Budget-friendly – Cedar is actually cheaper than many composite siding products, which makes it a good budget choice. It also has a naturally low density and high R-value, which makes it a good insulator. Compared to other types of siding, this can also help you save money on your monthly energy bills.
