Cedar siding vs. Vinyl siding
In extreme weather vinyl is less durable than wood. Strong wind could possibly get beneath the thin sheets of vinyl siding and lift a panel in the wall. Powerful hail or windblown debris can puncture vinyl. Vinyl siding will always alter the overall texture and proportions of the house, changing the depth of moldings and replacing natural wood grain with factory-made embossed patterns. Cedar is a natural product; has insulating value; serves as a sound barrier. Vinyl is plastic; installs faster than cedar; moisture won’t collect behind siding because vinyl is hung loosely, allowing air to circulate. However regardless to how well the vinyl siding resembles wood grains, the overall look will never be the same as cedar siding.
Cedar siding vs. Fiber Cement siding
Both Cedar siding and Fiber Cement siding that we offer and professionally install are high end products. Their installation is more labor consuming compared to vinyl siding, and the materials cost more, but the final result lasts way longer and delivers a lot better look than that of cheaper products. Fiber Cement siding is more difficult to install as special tools needed for installation as well as masks for cutting it. While having a natural grain and beauty Cedar planks are not as uniform as Cement siding and they vary in length. While Cedar siding is mostly insect resistant, the bees and wood peckers may be attracted by it, while Fiber Cement does not attract any living creatures to chew on it.
