When it comes to the exterior of your home there are many natural and artificial options available. One popular exterior option is cedar, although there are several things to consider before investing in this building material. Cedar is highly attractive when stained and some varieties of cedar, such as white cedar, become increasingly aesthetically pleasing over time. Cedar may be cut into numerous styles, such as beveled or traditional shingles or shakes. It maintains a timeless appeal that most other forms of siding attempt to emulate. This visual appeal of cedar is complimented by superior sound and thermal insulation.

Another benefit of using cedar is that it is completely biodegradable, making it an excellent option for green homes. It may easily be painted and stained to acquire the look you desire. It is also suitable for use with almost any architectural style. Unlike most alternatives, cedar is easy to install, making it an excellent DIY project. Properly maintained, cedar siding may last as long as 75 years and may be pre-stained to add additional weatherproofing.
