PLASTIC VS. CLASSIC
Here’s what Real Cedar has to say about wood siding:
“When you’re deciding on siding, there are many factors to consider – aesthetics, value, durability, versatility and environmental sustainability. Now, many plastic imitators may claim to rank high in all these categories. But how do they really stack up against Real Cedar? Well, according to most experts, synthetic materials pale in comparison. Here’s why:
Real Cedar siding instantly elevates your home to another level of warmth and beauty. You can’t get that with the plastic substitutes. Try as they might, the look, the feel and the scent of natural wood just can’t be duplicated in a chemistry lab. That’s why synthetic siding always ends up looking a little on the cheap side – odd, considering composite materials actually cost more than Real Cedar.
Western Red Cedar is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attacks. Which makes it incredibly low maintenance whereas the so-called “low maintenance” composite materials require more upkeep because they don’t have any natural defenses against things like mildew. As well, plastic substitutes are susceptible to fading due to sun exposure – only unlike Real Cedar; composite materials can’t be restored or refinished once their color has faded. So if you want siding that lasts decades and just keeps getting better with age, then Real Cedar’s the way to go.
Concerned about the environmental footprint your siding product will leave behind? With Real Cedar, you can take heart in knowing you’re using one of the most sustainable building materials available. It produces the least greenhouse gas, air pollution, water pollution and solid waste. Not only that – Western Red Cedar lumber is harvested from the most sustainably managed forests in the world. So you can feel good about your wood.
SPOILT FOR CHOICE
Western Red Cedar is free of pitch and resin, which means it takes to stains, oils and finishes exceptionally well. So your siding color options are pretty much limitless. The same goes for the style options. So for example, you can go for the warm traditional feel of layered bevel or you can streamline your home’s look with some super sleek, tongue & groove siding or you can get creative with your own board & batten pattern – the list goes on and on. And then there’s texture – with Real Cedar, you can work with a clear grade for a crisp, contemporary look. Or choose knotty for some added rustic charm – trying achieving that look with a synthetic product!
Cha-Ching! That’s the sound of money you can save with Real Cedar siding. Not only does it cost less up front than composite materials. But thanks to its low density, Western Red Cedar is a natural thermal insulator. So if you want siding that doesn’t just look great, but also keeps your heating and AC bills down, the choice is clear.”
