Wood Siding Options for Massachusetts Homeowners
Wood siding is classic and elegant and never goes out of style. Using wood siding gives you many style options for the exterior of your home. Although wood siding is a preferred choice for many Massachusetts homeowners, it is important to select wood that is suited to the region of the country in which you live and also the environment in your yard.
Many woodpeckers and other birds are drawn to the wood on the exteriors of homes. If woodpeckers make holes in the wood, it must be filled or replaced. Also, if you select a wood that has to be transported a long distance, or is not frequently harvested, or is not suited to the climate and conditions where you live, it can add cost to your project as well as create delays.
Wood Must Be Properly Maintained
Many things can drive your decision to select wood siding for your home including style, location and your budget. Although good wood siding should last for many years, it must be properly maintained, and this includes power washing, staining and sealing.
Types of Wood Siding
Cedar Siding: Stains well, rot-resistant, must be sealed and stained or painted
Redwood: Although a good choice for siding in all climates, it is grown in the West and can be difficult to obtain in other regions.
Cedar Siding is a Popular Choice in Massachusetts
There are a variety of woods used in the United States, but the most popular wood siding used in the Greater Boston and surrounding communities is cedar siding. It is generally more expensive than premium vinyl and fiber cement.
