Clapboard siding, also referred to as wood siding, weather board siding or wood plank siding, offers the classic beauty and charm of real wood. This type of siding has a beveled edge along the bottom and is thinner at the top so that the siding overlaps properly. Cedar is the most popular type of wood clapboard siding because it performs well in adverse weather conditions and high winds, and is both water and insect-resistant.
Benefits of Siding Installed by Landmark Exteriors
Repels Insects: The cedar tree naturally produces its own oil, infused into its wood that acts as a natural insect repellent, turning wood-eating bugs like termites away.
Resists Rot: The cedar oil present in the siding resists wood rot, which makes cedar a good option for homes in climates that experience high humidity and other damp conditions.
Provides Insulation: Because cedar is a low-density softwood, less heat is transported through the wood, keeping heat from escaping in the winter and the cool air from escaping in the summer.
