It's a common question and it comes in different forms and thus has different answers: "For exterior wall applications, can you install cedar shingles over vinyl siding? Over Hardie Plank? Brick?"

Cedar shingles can improve the look of an existing wall--but it doesn't go over everything. In some cases, you can install cedar but you need to make special preparations before installing the cedar.

Install Cedar Over: Masonry (i.e. Brick)?

Yes. First install wood furring strips to nail the cedar shingles onto.

Install Cedar Over: Wood Clapboard?

Yes. If the clapboard is in good condition, you can nail directly onto it with no furring strips. Yes. Apply as you would for wood clapboard siding, except furring strips are advisable.

Install Cedar Over: Flat Wood Siding Such as Exterior Grade Plywood?

Yes. Even though this is a retro-fit, treat this as you would a new-wall installation. Apply type 30 felt underlayment and then nail directly onto the material.

Install Cedar Over: Stucco?

Yes. First install wood furring strips to nail the cedar shingles onto.

Stucco or wood siding?

I have a house that is in serious need of an exterior paint job. it currently has wood vertical panel siding, which is a pain to paint DIY because of the grooves...which is why it's taken so long to get around to it.
in any case...i really like stucco and was wondering what you all thought about having the house changed from the wood siding to stucco?
- i'm assuming that the wood siding would have to be taken down...or can they stucco over it?
- does anyone have an approximate cost (per square foot) for doing this? i figure if it's not much more than just re-painting (which is going to require a lot of sand-blasting to get rid of the flaking paint), then now is the time to do it
