Benefits of Cedar Siding
Of course, wood and cedar shingles offer a beautiful appearance that is one of their main attractions, but there are other benefits as well.
Weather Resistance: One of the biggest strengths of our siding is the water resistance that it comes with. It can hold up against rain, wind, snow, and insects.
Paints & Protective Finishes: Probably the most common reasons why homeowners love wood and cedar shingles because you can stain, paint, and finish them to help prolong their lives, update their appearance and show your personality. Siding can come pre-finished in your choice of color from a huge range of options. It naturally resists mold and damage.
Environmentally Friendly: High-quality siding helps insulate your home and improve its overall energy-efficiency. It helps keep your home cool during the summer and warm in the winter. Cedar and wood siding all help reduce your energy bills, and they’re siding materials that you can feel good about because they’re natural.

Compared to Other Home Siding Materials
Today, there are many quality home siding options out there, so it can be a difficult choice for homeowners. Vinyl siding is the most popular choice for homeowners today because of its affordability, but it does have its downsides. Vinyl siding can bend and crack in the frigid cold of New England winters and become brittle. Alternative siding materials are extremely strong, but you can’t update your home’s appearance without residing it. Composite siding options can be very costly as well. That’s why fiber cement and cedar siding are the top materials for homeowners today.
