What Are The Benefits Of Cedar Wood Siding?

Cedar wood siding is an incredibly popular siding choice among homeowners because of its beautiful color and eco-friendly material. But cedar siding doesn’t come without its necessary maintenance.


That said, what are the benefits of using cedar siding for your home and how can you properly manage the few trouble areas that come along with those benefits?


What are the advantages of cedar siding?


There are many benefits to using cedar wood siding for your home. The most common benefit that many homeowners opting for cedar know of is the wood’s warm aesthetic.


Cedar siding has a warm color and the smell of the wood creates a naturally homey sensation for many homeowners. Additionally, the different wood grains and siding styles give you the ability to customize the look of your home even if you’re using a popular wood choice.


Other benefits include the cedar’s ability to hold onto its wood staining should you choose to stain it, resist swelling and cracking, and durability. Cedar siding is also relatively easy to install.


Finally, cedar siding is biodegradable, renewable, and reclaimable, making it a major eco-friendly option for those who love to do their part for the environment.


What are the disadvantages of cedar siding (and how can I conquer them)?


Because cedar siding is made from natural wood, it will need proper maintenance to stay in good condition, not unlike a wooden deck. Fortunately, your cedar siding isn’t a garden so you don’t have to perform maintenance every day.


It’s recommended to re-stain your cedar siding every five to 10 years if the siding is stained. If painted, it’s recommended to repaint the siding every 10 to 15 years.


This helps to protect your cedar siding from moisture penetration, mold, and warping that could impact the overall look of your siding. 


Looking for a siding installation company for your home?


If you’re interested in cedar wood siding installation, you’re not alone. Cedar siding is the number one most popular type of wood siding and it can last up to 25 years with proper maintenance.


Whether you’re looking for a siding installer to give your home the cedar siding you love or you need to repair siding, the siding services of Side Pro have you covered. To learn more about our siding installation process or to schedule your siding installation, contact Side Pro today.

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.
