Red cedar shingle siding looks beautiful on this historic home located in the heart of the village in Fairhaven, MA.
Many homeowners choose this timeless wood siding for their homes. Here are several reasons why cedar shingles are popular:
Curb Appeal: Homeowners who prefer classic New England style will often opt for the elegance of cedar shingle siding. It’s timeless beauty can be showcased naturally with a weathered patina or be treated with clear, semi-transparant, or solid finishes.
Natural Insulator: Low-density softwoods, like cedar, are more cellular in composition in comparison to other siding materials. This makes cedar shingle siding a natural insulator which helps regulate temperatures and reduce noise.
Rot and Insect Resistant: Red cedar shingles have oils and acids that naturally repel insects and resist rot. With regular cleaning and/or treatment, this long-lasting siding will provide homeowners with a lifetime of protection and curb appeal.
Environmentally Friendly: As one of the most popular siding choices, homeowners who are conscience of their planetary footprint love red cedar because it’s a renewable resource. According to the Western Red Cedar Lumber Association, North American forests have grown by 20% since 1970 thanks to the replacement of harvested trees by lumber production companies.
