cedar Shake Siding Services

The general life expectancy of cedar siding is approximately 20-40 years, although when proper maintenance and care is taken, it can go up to around 60-70 years. However, longevity is also determined by several factors such as staining, leaving them unstained, type of finish, sealants used, panel style, and even the manufacturer. When you apply proper finishing to your cedar siding, then you’ll be extending its longevity. 


On the other hand, if you leave your siding touching the ground, then there is a higher chance of pest invasion and moisture which both shortens its lifespan. If you leave your cedar shakes untreated, then it will take about 5 years for them to soften and start rotting under moisture conditions.

Cedar siding a beautiful material that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but very functional as well. There are many properties to cedar that help a home maintain heat and cool, as well as smell nice, and have a complementary look.

Using a natural or clear sealant is a great way of preserving cedar siding, and with that the product will remain beautiful and durable for many years.
