Benefits of Cedar Siding for Your Pacific Northwest Home

Of all types of wood siding, cedar is chosen most often by homeowners. If you live in the Pacific Northwest, cedar siding is a great choice. It provides your home with a classic, elegant look that reflects the natural beauty of the region. Cedar siding offers benefits that make it the ideal choice for withstanding Northwest weather. Here are some of those benefits.

 

Durability and Strength

Cedar siding is unique. It’s exceptionally durable due to the wood’s natural properties. Cedar stands up to bacteria, rot, mildew, and fungi, so it holds up in wet climates. If you choose siding made from cedar, it will last for a long time.

 

Low Maintenance

Cedar is a strong wood, so maintaining cedar siding is easy. Most homeowners simply have semiannual inspections for moisture buildup and termites. With minimal care, cedar siding may endure for decades.

 

Visual Appeal

Unlike a roof replacement, which visitors may or may not notice, cedar siding installation brings natural beauty to your home. Striking patterns in the wood grain create visual interest and will get the attention of your neighbors or potential buyers. Cedar siding is appropriate for modern as well as traditional houses, so your home will fit in nicely with all Pacific Northwest styles.

 

Added Insulation

Wood siding provides additional insulation. Beveled wood siding and wood shingles provide the greatest energy efficiency. Cedar siding helps keep warm air inside during the winter, which brings down heating costs, and it helps keep cool air inside during the summer, which saves on the cost of air conditioning. It also protects your house’s structure from the damage that can come from high heat, water, and dry air.

 

Advantages of Cedar over Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding is also a popular option, but it doesn’t have the visual appeal that cedar siding offers. Vinyl siding is less expensive to purchase, but it’s not as durable as cedar, and therefore, it’s not a good value in the long run. Vinyl often cracks and buckles in tough weather conditions, making it a less than ideal choice for homes in the Pacific Northwest.

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.

Side-Pro did a FANTASTIC job installing the Cemplank siding and Hardieboard trim on our new shop. The price was great and the work was top-notch. The two gentlemen doing the work were efficient and professional. Communication with DJ, the project advisor/estimator was very good. Overall I am very pleased and will definitely use them again! Highly recommended.

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.
