Cedar is the much preferred choice of homebuilders over other types of construction materials. Cedar siding is resistant to insects and fares better over time in inclement weather. Once properly pre-stained, cedar will maintain its look for years and only needs a fresh coat of stain every 3-5 years, depending on the stain. When quality is your main concern, Lumber Out West will only sell the best cedar siding available on the market. No shortcuts are taken to make an extra buck.
