Wood Siding Through the Ages
People have used this type of siding for millennia and across different cultures and locations. In the United States, the use of wood for home exteriors dates back to the 17th century, when European settlers built their homes with materials sourced from abundant local forests. These initial homes typically used a style now known as “log siding” due to their log cabin construction.
Today, wood siding remains a popular choice for its natural beauty, warmth, and durability. While it has traditionally been used in rustic or cottage-style homes, its versatile nature makes it suitable for a wide range of architectural styles – from Cape Cod to modern farmhouse. Here are just a few of the wood siding options from which you can choose:
Clapboard (or bevel or lap siding): This traditional style is made from wedge-shaped boards designed to overlap each other. This overlap creates a distinct shadow line.
Shingles and shakes: Shingles are machine-cut and provide a uniform appearance, while shakes are hand-split, offering a more rustic look.
Board and batten: In this style, wide boards and narrow battens are installed in an alternating pattern, which creates an attractive dimensional effect.
Tongue-and-groove: This type of siding creates a tight, interlocking fit, creating a smooth and clean appearance.
One of the key benefits of wood siding is its environmental friendliness. As a renewable resource, wood has a lower environmental impact compared to many other siding materials. It also provides excellent natural insulation, which can improve your home’s energy efficiency and potentially lower heating and cooling costs.
Regular Wood Siding Maintenance Is an Opportunity to Refresh Your Look
While wood siding does require regular maintenance to keep it looking its best, this upkeep also provides an opportunity to change the look of the building by choosing a new paint or stain color. Maintenance may include periodic cleaning, repainting or staining, and in some cases, replacement of any damaged boards.
Despite the maintenance, many property owners feel that the aesthetic and environmental benefits of wood siding make it a worthwhile investment. For those seeking a siding material that is attractive, versatile, and sustainable, this type of siding is often an excellent choice.
