<< pros >>
Beautiful appearance. Very durable. It definitely ain't vinyl.
<< cons >>
Labor intensive installation. $Pricey$ for top quality. Must be installed over
top quality sheathing, moisture barriers. Back priming desireable.
Basic maintenance of top finish is vital for long life. But there are probably
many houses out there with cedar siding over a century old. HTH
Have you checked out the price of good quality cedar siding? If you have a
large area to cover, it will be EXPENSIVE.
I have a completely cedar sided house (even had cedar gutters) built in the
mid 70's and occasionally
have to replace a board or two. Not only is the 8 inch bevelled cedar
siding hard to come by, it is VERY expensive. And I live in cedar country.
There are a few cedar mills right in my area. It also sucks up transparent
stain like it cost nothing.
If I was building a new house, I would go with brick or vinyl siding. No
