Our siding greatly dictates our home’s external appearance and energy efficiency, which is why it’s important to pick a siding material that is ideal for your style, needs and climate. In today’s blog, the top siding and roof replacement experts, Lexington Blue, shares the top three benefits of wood siding.
Most homeowners value a degree of flexibility when it comes to their siding choices. Luckily, wood siding is offered in many options, such as pine, cedar, redwood, and mahogany. While these are all great options, cedar siding stands out due to their durability, insulation, and flexibility. Cedarwood siding is tough enough to handle harsh exterior elements while providing a warm appeal for your home’s exterior. Not to mention they’re also offered in multiple finishes to fit your home and your personal preferences.
In this day and age where natural resources are being harvested at a rapid rate, sustainability is becoming a major concern for both manufacturers and customers alike. As such, homeowners are beginning to adjust their lifestyles and are starting to opt for siding options that cater to sustainability. Luckily, wood siding is one of the most sustainable materials since wood can be recycled during the end of their service lifespan. They also emit less energy and do not contribute to any environmental pollution, compared to other siding materials.
Ease of Installation
One of the best benefits of wood siding is that it’s very easy to install, repair, paint, stain, or replace. This bodes well for your replacement project since installation costs will be reduced and little time will be consumed to prepare for painting. This is also beneficial in the long run since it will be easier for your siding contractor to repair it should you encounter any problems. Small holes can be simply fixed with putty and warped siding can be screwed easily and adjusted with a saw. Not to mention that wood is also easy to repaint and sand as well.
