Clear Cedar Upgrade

I write about this stuff all the time, but it's really cool to see how siding can transform a home. Last weekend, while visiting family, I just gasped when I saw how new red cedar siding had transformed this house. Clear grade, no knots, and a rich glow from the natural wood. Truly, this is stunning. The owner understands that the wood is naturally strong and insect resistant, so he's not messing with it. Just a light oil to seal and finish it. Wow, it's enough to make me do my own house...

Woodpeckers Love Cedar Siding

Cedar siding is truly beautiful, I agree, but what the author failed to mention is the incredible damage woodpeckers can cause to the siding. I've seen them damage board upon board upon board, and rarely in the same area. Some of the community associations in our area will not permit a homeowner to replace the existing wood siding with a fiber cement or vinyl product, so the homeowner is left to deal with the destruction caused by woodpeckers.
