Clapboard siding choices
Getting ready to make a siding choice to replace 100 yr old clapboards. GBA or FHB … can’t recall. I reviewed an article that compared the major choices and provided cost per square etc. Can anyone provide the link to that article?
I understand my choices are between Hardie, LP SmartSide, finger jointed or solid Western red cedar.
Neighborhood is full of 100 yr old colonials, contractor is pushing for the wood. I want to minimize paint maintenance. There will be a 1/4″ air gap under the siding.
