Cedar Siding Colorado Springs

Wood Siding Colorado

Interior, exterior

Wood has been the dominant siding material across the United States and throughout Colorado since the state was first settled by pioneers in the 1800s. Wood siding, if properly installed and maintained can last more than 30 years and it still covers a majority of homes throughout the state. Some of the Victorian homes in towns such as Silverton, Leadville and Boulder are still at least partially covered by their original wood siding. In Colorado’s dry climate, proper maintenance and a little bit of luck keeping the bugs away can allow wood siding to be a beautiful and functional siding material for decades.

While we have many products that look like wood, solid wood (usually cedar, pine, spruce, redwood, cypress, or Douglas fir) is still a preference for many homeowners. Colorado’s most popular wood siding choices are pine and spruce. Whether you are looking to repair your existing wood siding or replace your siding with wood, call Scottish Home Improvements to schedule a FREE in home consultation.

Restoring cedar siding

There are a few things to check prior to cleaning. First, throw a cup full of water on the siding and see if it absorbs or repels. This will help you determine how well the oil has sealed the siding. There are numerous types of products to use to "brighten" the siding and restore it to it's natural color. Different parts of the country have different products that will hold up to the harsh winters and extreme summers. Best bet is to check with your local paint store, NOT the local Hardware store, paint department.
