3 Reasons to Choose Cedar Siding

siding companies

Lumber makes up over 40% of all building materials used, and cedar is the number one kind of wood siding chosen. When you’re deciding on the best siding material for your home, cedar offers distinct advantages over other materials. Because of this, doityourself.com offers three reasons to consider choosing cedar.


It Is Durable.


Cedar is much more resistant to splitting, rot, swelling, bending, and mildew issues than other woods. This type of siding also requires less maintenance, unlike other kinds of wood sidings. It’s much longer-lasting than woods such as pine as well. 


A layer of finish is recommended to protect your cedar siding and keep it looking its best, and it should be refinished or repainted every four to five years for the best appearance. Regular inspections for moisture build-up and termites are suggested, along with twice-yearly cleanings. When properly cared for, cedar siding can last up to 75 years. This gives siding companies like Side-Pro, who use the highest quality products, the confidence to cover their materials and labor on any product defect with warranties of up to 50 years.


It Is Eco-Friendly.


Surprisingly, cedar is an environmentally-conscious siding choice since it doesn’t require a great deal of treatment or processing. In addition, it’s a renewable product that’s entirely biodegradable once its purpose has been served. Choosing cedar for roof or siding replacement can also save you substantial amounts of energy during the year because it has excellent insulation properties. 


It Has Aesthetic Appeal.


The majority of homeowners choose cedar siding because of its beauty and its ability to blend in well with a home’s background. For individuals who love the look of natural cedar, simply apply a protective clear finish. Cedar can also be painted if you so desire, and you can select from tongue and groove, bevel, and rough cut patterns as well. White and red cedar is available, and the distinctive grain pattern of this wood greatly increases its aesthetic appeal. 


Siding companies like Side-Pro can replace or install your home’s siding or roofing with a variety of materials, and choosing the one that best meets your needs is an important decision. Cedar siding offers several advantages such as durability, environmental impact, and visual appeal. For these reasons, it’s a siding material well worth considering.

Side-Pro fixed an issue with some wavy sideboards on my home. The team that came out was fast, effective, professional -- and genuinely nice guys. They explained what they were doing, answered all my questions, and got the work done beautifully and ahead of schedule. Afterwards they followed up promptly to make sure I was satisfied and to let me know they were available for any future questions or concerns. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone needing similar work done.

Side Pro was a pleasure to work with from the start. I learned in the bid process that most siding and window companies are sales teams only and all the installation is sub-contracted out. It was important to me to use a firm that was accountable for the end to end job and Side Pro used full-time employees for my job. The sales person knew a lot about siding and gave me some great recommendations. He submitted a competitive price and then walked through the full job with me and the job foreman. Then the job foreman took over and was very responsive to all my questions and change orders over the course of project. The installation team was also excellent. They cleaned up every day and did really top notch work. I am very particular and they worked to understand what I was after and made it happen. Great job. The job site had COVID procedures posted, which were followed by the crew, and a safety officer dropped by on two occasions to check up on things. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better customer experience and recommend Side Pro to anyone considering new siding.

I am VERY satisfied! I called for a repair job. Several other companies either would not give an estimate, or could not do so for several months. I got the job done, as requested, within a couple weeks. Karl their repair specialist is pleasant to work with, as well as competent.

I needed crawl space vents installed with very short notice. Side-Pro set up an appointment and got the work done in a matter of days! The contractor who did the work busted his butt and was very nice. The work is excellent.
