Wood siding is sustainable, energy-efficient, and can accommodate both rustic and modern design styles. Replacing the wood siding on your home also offers strong ROI, with an average return of 77%.
There are many reasons that your clients might consider replacing their wood siding. In addition to the promise of high ROI, resilient siding is key to protecting a home from insects, moisture, and other environmental factors that can, over time, become a threat to structural integrity.
This Burlington, VA home designed by Cushman Design Group uses shiplap Eastern White Pine treated with a translucent stain for a weathered look that integrates the home with the surrounding landscape and references the historical farmhouses found in the region.
“The home represents and manifests qualities that regularly mark our design work,” writes the designer, “thoughtful use of natural materials, abundant natural daylighting and the employment of talented local craftsmen, artisans and carpenters, as well as a wonderful color palette.”
Cedar, redwood, and fir are also commonly used in siding treatments. To reduce cost, consider encouraging your clients to select a wood species native to their home’s location.
