Cedar siding is loved for many reasons, not least of which is the handsome appearance that comes from popular colors and many grain textures and patterns. There are several other great reasons to consider cedar siding, especially its durable and resistant nature, ability to insulate, versatility, and the fact that it is easy to work with. This versatile siding material is also able to be cut into different styles of siding, such as cedar bevel siding or cedar siding shingles. Many homeowners also appreciate the look of weathered white cedar siding. Over time, white cedar siding takes on a silvery sheen which cannot be replicated with other types of siding materials.
Cedar is naturally resistant to decay, moisture, UV rays, and insect damage. It also insulates naturally which works against noise and keeps your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Its versatility lies in its natural beauty whether it is stained or painted. Finally, it is easy to work with because it is lightweight and relatively low-cost. High-quality siding can be a definitive feature of your property, and if you want to make a solid statement, cedar siding is an excellent choice. It has a warm and natural look and is also one of the most durable types of exterior siding available on the market. Cedar adds character to any building and provides a unique, distinguished look. Cedar siding is made from the evergreen cedar tree, which produces so-called “soft lumber,” which is why it is so lightweight and easy to work with. However, this wood is also very strong and durable, and also has a remarkable tight grain pattern that helps it hold its shape in any kind of weather extremes, making it perfect for the climate on Long Island.
Compared to other softwoods used for building materials, cedar is one of the most naturally durable and decay-resistant. When installed and finished properly, red cedar siding can last for decades.

We pride ourselves on being able to help clients make informed decisions for their homes. Sometimes cedar doesn’t require a replacement but simply needs a repair.

If you’re improving your home’s exterior or planning to get rid of your old, beaten up siding, maybe consider getting fiber cement siding installed. Fiber cement siding has many benefits you can enjoy. Fiber cement siding comes in a myriad of colors, textures and styles that mimic other conventional siding materials like stucco, clapboards or cedar shingles. It’s durable because it’s made from a combination of sand, cement and wood fiber. It can survive longer than other contemporary siding materials because it is resistant to fire, wind and insect infestation.
Wood siding comes in a variety of styles. The most common styles include board and batten, shakes, shingles, and clapboards. Giving a natural, warm appearance and timeless beauty, builders often choose wood for premium projects. Pine and cedar are the two main wood species used for exterior siding. Cedar types include eastern white cedar, red cedar and Alaskan yellow cedar; each type has a color true to its name. While pine siding can be very affordable, it can’t resist rot and insects like cedar can.
As stone veneer siding has gained in popularity, more and more companies began producing natural stone siding that is cut to a standard thickness from quarried stone. The most obvious advantages associated with real stone veneer siding is that A) it is real stone B) it is much lighter in weight and therefore much easier to install and fit precisely and C) the stone patterns, textures and shades just can’t be replicated by any other veneer. When properly installed and cared for, stone veneer siding lasts indefinitely and stands the tests of Long Island’s weather.

A huge advantage of engineered wood siding is that it is highly durable. It withstands the weather better, wards off insects, and even resists fire for a certain duration compared to natural wood. The chemicals used on it dramatically increase its durability and longevity, so you won’t have to worry about replacing it anytime soon. Another benefit of having engineered wood siding on your home is that it reduces noise pollution. Engineered wood will serve you well if you want practicality while sacrificing a little bit of the exterior appearance.
Cedar siding is a visual delight, captivating the eye with its natural beauty. The rich colors and intricate grain patterns of cedar evoke a sense of warmth and timelessness. Its warm hues range from honeyed golds to deep reds, providing a stunning palette that complements any architectural style. The wood’s elegance and organic charm create a unique, distinguished look, while weathered cedar siding develops a captivating silvery sheen over time, adding a touch of rustic allure to your home’s exterior. Cedar siding truly pleases the eye with its enduring aesthetic appeal.
