Solid Wood Siding –
Natural solid wood siding is the winner in the “most popular” category when it comes to siding in America. Wood siding is milled in various patterns giving you numerous choices. The natural beauty and exquisite craftsmanship are undeniable. But this beauty comes at a price; maintenance. Maintenance combined with the fact that the strongest of the wood sidings are cut from old growth trees can prove to be problematic. If you decide to go with solid wood siding make sure it is FSC-certified or made from “re-purposed” wood. Doing so will insure you are taking the Greenest route possible!
