My wife and I are looking for a new house. So we found this great looking house, but outside walls are made out of cedar. House is about 25 years old and it looks great, but my wife is concern that cedar is not as strong and practical as brick and dose not last as long.Dose it take more energy to warm it up in the winter and cool it off in the summer? Also what about resale value of the cedar house versus brick house?
Any input is greatly appreciated.
