Cedar is the best option for natural exterior loving people. Traditionally, because it is a natural material the siding may not come in different colours, however, some manufacturers provide options that can be easily painted. It is also possible to get several different stained options.
The best feature of cedar is that it offers many style options – shakes and shingles, board & battens, planks, and many more. This natural material is not as long-lasting as the other exterior materials in the market. On average cedar lasts 25 years, but when you well-maintain the exterior it can increase its lifespan.
Due to it being a natural option, cedar is on the expensive side of the exterior sidings options. The price may depend on the stain and siding style. To cover 1 square foot of area with cedar it costs around $11 to $15 including labour. The installation process is not as easy as vinyl for example and requires professional help.
Maintaining cedar needs extra attention, but it is not that difficult when using special cleaning solutions (it should also be noted that using a pressure washer is a big no-no here). To make the exterior look brand new you should re-stain the cedar every 5 to 6 years, but it worth the look!
