Cedar wood is one of the most popular woods in the world, and it comes in many varieties, including western red, Atlantic white, and yellow. It’s known for its versatility, durability, and weather resistance, which is why it’s often a popular choice for exterior home siding. At Middletown Lumber, we carry a large selection of western red cedar siding that offers a premium upgrade to existing siding and makes an excellent choice for new construction projects.
Benefits of Cedar Siding
When compared to other types of lumber, cedar has excellent resistance to bacteria, mildew, rot, and fungi. This is why it’s often used in exterior spaces, such as decks, porches, and siding.
Unlike other types of wood siding, cedar siding requires much less maintenance. Twice a year cleaning keeps it looking beautiful, and regular inspection for termites and moisture accumulation is important as well.
Types Of Red Cedar Siding
At Middletown Lumber, we carry tongue and groove cedar as well as cedar bevel siding in multiple dimensions for the convenience of our customers. If you need a specific length or width, you can contact us for a special order. Our large inventory of cedar bevel and tongue and groove siding is drawing customers from all over Pennsylvania, including York, Lancaster, and Mechanicsburg.
For a rustic, original look, cedar siding can be used in its original form. It typically ages and whitens naturally over the years, and to preserve the natural color, a clear finish may be applied. Cedar siding can also be finished or painted if you prefer a different color.
Few siding types have as much visual appeal and natural warmth as red cedar. Many homeowners prefer this type of siding because it blends in well with natural landscapes and has more curb appeal than vinyl or aluminum siding options. Its grain pattern gives it a naturally attractive appearance, and its resiliency to weather and insects only add to its usefulness.
In addition to looking beautiful and being highly resistant to wear from weather and insects, cedar siding is also extremely durable. It’s naturally resistant to problems such as splitting, swelling, and bending. To preserve its appearance and help it last even longer, it’s a good idea to protect your cedar siding with an exterior finish.
Cedar siding requires minimal processing and treatment. At Middletown Lumber, we take pride in carefully milling, cutting, and preparing our inventory of western red cedar for our customers.
Western red cedar siding is an excellent insulator due to its low density and may help you save on energy costs throughout the year. During harsh Pennsylvania winters, cedar siding can potentially help you stay warmer, and when the hot days of summer arrive, cedar siding can keep your house cool.
