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

"Very Professional Crew!"
They did a good job in lousy weather as the project was done during winter. The crew that was onsite was really good and we had no issues during or after renovation.

Bill C., Delta

"The team was great"

Vancouver Siding informed me of what they were doing and when it would be done. Most important, they showed up when they said they would. We are pleased with the job Siding in Vancouver did for us!

Anthony C., Port Moody

"Great service, very professional and on budget"

We had our siding removed and replaced by Siding in Vancouver. Vladimir (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, they 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 Vladimir was always available to answer any questions we had.

"Honest, reliable guys!"

Siding Vancouver is a great company to work with! Oleg 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!

"They Offered Plenty of Options"

The crew were very professional and pleasant workers. I also received comments from other trades on how helpful they were. I found them doing searches online and glad I chose them.

"Siding Vancouver is Very Professional!"
I was very happy that they were able to complete the work on time. I was very pleased with the materials they were able to come up with to meet our needs and likes. I really liked the quality and the look of the installation. They had creative solutions because they went outside of the box and was willing to use different products to complete the project. If I ever have to redo our roof or build another home, I would call Siding in Vancouver for sure.
