Cedar siding has many benefits over other types of siding that is common for homes.
Our team at Siding Vancouver is happy to walk you through the benefits of each, but below we have done our best to summarize why cedar siding might be the right choice for your Vancouver home.
Cedar has many innate properties that help it resist against problems such as mildew, fungi and other bacterias. With this innate resistance to common problems with wood siding, cedar siding will prove to be a low maintenance, highly durable siding for your Vancouver home. With a little education about caring for cedar siding, you can ensure your cedar siding lasts for decades and looks its best.
Cedar is unlikely to split, swell and bend like other wood sidings. This is due to its high oil and sap content. Also, coating your cedar siding on your Vancouver home with a protective finish layer will increase the durability tremendously. Our team at Siding Vancouver can help with your cedar siding installations and finishes.
For starters, cedar siding is available in red or white. This choice truly depends on the end look you are trying to achieve. The next choices to make are regarding the finish. Some people leave their cedar untreated for a natural look; however this decreases the durability of the siding. Others choose to finish the cedar siding with a clear coat to maintain a natural look, but increasing the longevity. As a homeowner, you may wish to paint your cedar siding a colour of your choice as well.
Cedar siding is more environmentally friendly than using other wood sidings for your home. This is because cedar requires minimal processing and treatment, decreasing environmental effects. Cedar siding is also biodegradable.
Cedar is an excellent insulator, so it helps home owners decrease their heating expenses in the Winter. As an excellent insulator, cedar also helps keep in cool air during the summer months to decrease your air conditioning expenses.
