Clapboard is mostly used for exterior siding. It’s typically made from Western Red Cedar and is flexible compared to other types. It can be applied by overlapping wood planks known as clapboards. The siding can be painted, stained, or even left untreated and it will still look aesthetically pleasing. With proper maintenance and care, clapboard siding can last for many years, even outlasting Vinyl.
Benefits of Cedar Clapboard:
- Environmentally friendly
- Painted or Stained in any color
- Easy installation
Is Cedar Clapboard right for you?
Although wood siding may be easier to repair than other materials, it requires more maintenance as you will need wood to be repainted from time to time. One of the biggest downfalls to clapboard is its high-susceptibility rate to insects and animals which could ultimately cost you more than you first anticipated. /p>
