Cedar Siding

Cedar is a natural material that is both insect and moisture resistant; it also has exceptional resistance to decay, as well as relatively moderate strength and weight. It’s used not only for exterior siding, but also for interior paneling, because of its beautiful amber color, in addition to a straight, even grain.

The most common type of cedar siding is bevel siding, which is made as beveled boards — thinner at the top edge and thicker at the bottom. During installation, it has to be placed in overlapping layers.

Though installation and repair of cedar siding is relatively simple, it requires more long-term maintenance than other popular solutions (like vinyl or fiber cement). It requires treatment every 5-10 years, depending on the severity of weather to which it is exposed. Cedar siding is very versatile in style and can be painted in any color palette desired.

Benefits of Cedar Siding

Environmental Friendly “Green Building”
Cedar siding products require much less energy to produce than fiber-cement, vinyl, or steel. Wood products make up more than 40% of all raw materials manufactured in Canada, but its share of energy consumption during the manufacturing process is only about 4%. Cedar is naturally renewable building material and can be recycled and regenerated. Also, its manufacturing process produces far fewer greenhouse gases than manufacturing other siding products.

Natural Components
Cedar’s unique, natural preservative oil eliminates the need for artificial chemical treatment. The arsenic and copper compounds that are usually used to preserve other wood siding products can pose a serious health threat.

Durable Material
Cedar’s durability is legendary. It has natural resistance to moisture, decay, and pest damage, which makes it the ideal choice for an exterior siding that is exposed to the elements — rain , sun, cold, and heat.

Incredible Beauty and Aroma
Surround yourself in the beauty of real cedar. For several centuries, builders and artisans have valued the wood for its natural beauty. It compliments any architectural designs and tastes — from retro-style to contemporary buildings. Cedar easily accepts a range of different finishes, from solid coatings and paint to fine oils and stains. Cedar also has unique aroma, which comes from its heartwood.

Exceptional Workability
Cedar material is relatively easy to cut, glue, and finish compared to other alternatives. This type of siding is usually produced in long, lightweight lengths of timber that have a fine grain and uniform texture. It’s easy to saw, cut, and nail with common tools. These features also help it to be planed onto a smooth surface and machined to any desired pattern. The lack of pitch and resin allows quality cedar to hold glue bonds from a wide range of adhesives, while insuring a firm base for various types of paints and stains.

Cedar Siding Installation

In conclusion, cedar is one of the world’s premier woods. The siding is well known for its beautiful appearance, natural durability, light material weight, dimensional stability, and insulation value.

Our testimonials

"Thank you Siding in Vancouver!"

We needed our siding to be replaced as it was installed over 35 years ago. I got 4 different quotes and Siding in Vancouver had the best price. I did some research on them, as there is another company with a very similar name, but after I talked to the James Hardie representative, he explained that it is the only preferred contractor with over 25 installations a year and the other company is not. Quality of installation was perfect, guys knew what they were doing. I am not sure why they gave me such a good price, but at the end of the day I am very happy with the result. Thank you, Andrey!

"Great service, very professional and on budget"

We had our siding removed and replaced by Siding in Vancouver. Andrey (owner of the company) gave us many tips on what style would be the best for our home, gave us some catalogs to read and options on vinyl/hardy/cedar siding. It took us a few weeks to decide, but once we were ready, Andrey ordered materials and guys started demolition and preparation the next day (I was blown away). Overall it takes a lot of time to replace siding on the whole house (now I know), it is a lot of work after all. Site was cleaned every day and Andrey was always available to answer any questions we had.

"Honest, reliable guys!"

Siding in Vancouver is a great company to work with! Andrey explained me all the pro’s and con’s of different siding options, was very open about budgets for different options (as I had a very limited budget), so we decided to replace siding on 2 walls (the most beaten ones) and will do the rest in 2-3 years. Definitely will recommend those guys!

"Excellent experience!"

I am glad we had our house renovated by Siding in Vancouver. Andrey and Eldar were great at communicating step by step all the aspects of the siding and windows replacement. It was quite a difficult project (house is very close to the neighbours), but guys did a great job, were on time and on budget. Thanks again!
