The most popular and time tested form of siding for a home is exterior wood siding.
Wood siding is manufactured in a variety of types such as shake, clapboard, singles or lap. Panels are applied vertically or horizontally, and finishes range from stains to paint to sealants. Although wood is beautiful, it requires maintenance and can rot and burn.
Wood is still one of the more expensive of the siding you can get for your home.
For those homeowners who prefer the beauty and warmth offered by wood siding redwood, cypress and cedar are the favored options.
