Advantages and Disadvantages of Wood Siding
Posted on October 18, 2010 in
More and more home owners are coming forward these days and doing their bit to conserve the environment. Wood siding is not a preferred option these days mostly due to its various disadvantages. This blog post tracks the advantages and disadvantages that come with wood siding:
Wood siding can be installed quickly. It also reduces installation cost and time. Wood siding is cheap and is a low-cost alternative to other siding materials. Because the material is easily available, replacement is quick and easy.
The biggest drawback of wood siding is that it offers no insulation. It is prone to damage and needs frequent coats of paint and weather-stripping.
