Types of Wood Siding
There are a variety of types of wood siding on the market today. You can choose from several woods, including red cedar, white or red pine, spruce, Douglas fir, cypress and redwood. In addition, there are different styles of wood siding, including wood shingles, tongue and groove planks and log cabin style panels that give the look of a rustic log cabin without using as much wood. Wood siding can be pre-painted and pre-finished at the factory or shipped in its natural state.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Wood Siding
It’s important to weigh the pros and the cons of wood siding before committing to covering your entire home with wood shake. On the plus side, wood siding offers a warm, inviting look that’s sure to boost your home’s curb appeal. Wood siding is also one of the least expensive choices for siding and can be painted virtually any color or left to age naturally.
One of the disadvantages of wood siding is the maintenance required. Unlike vinyl or composite siding, wood siding can split, warp and rot over time and individual shingles may need replaced. In addition, wood siding requires periodic painting or sealing—generally needed every five to ten years. Additionally, wood offers less insulation value than other, newer types of siding, such as vinyl or composite shingles.
