White cedar shingles protect a building from the elements, have a small environmental footprint, are easy to maintain, and they look good.
After a long summer of too much rain followed by too much heat, I am finally able start painting the clapboards on our house. The house desperately needs it, but I don't look forward to the prepping, scraping, caulking, and eventual painting. It got me thinking: what siding would I choose if I were starting over with a new home? (Hey, I can dream.) The answer was simple for me...white cedar shingles.
