The Beauty of Wood Siding

The classic and elegant look of wood siding will never go out of style, and that's why a lot of people still prefer to use it on their homes. Whether the theme of your house is modern or antique, wood will always have a place in your interior and exterior due to its versatile design and various choices. Yet with lots of other, cheaper alternatives out there, is it really still worth it? Below are some pros and cons of using wood siding for your home.

Durability
Wood is very durable and will definitely last a long time. Trees are always exposed to the elements, and they often withstand even the worst tantrums of nature. Wood siding, if cared for, can last hundreds of years.

Style Choice
Using wood siding also gives you many options in terms of choice of style. For example, you can line the pieces up horizontally, vertically or overlapping. You can choose whether to use logs, clapboards or cedar shake sidings.

Natural Materials
Natural wood (not treated by preservatives) is more environment-friendly than prefabricated and synthetic materials. The production and processing of wood siding is also more eco-friendly, which means that manufacturing it does not contribute too much to environmental contamination in comparison to the production of these other materials.


Maintenance
Wood, unlike other materials used for houses, needs to be taken care of. Yes, it is definitely durable, but you must still take proper care if you plan to use wood siding for your home. It has to be painted every 2 years or so to keep it looking new and maintain its durability. Note, however, that certain paints can be toxic to the wood, so be very careful about what paint you use. Be sure that it is as natural as possible and does not contain unnecessary harmful chemicals.

Treatment
Since wood can rot over time, it has to be treated every so often in order to stay healthy. Treating the wood will give it a good seal and will prevent moisture from penetrating the core. This treatment, however, can be quite costly if you need professionals to do this for you.

Termites
Another problem with wood is that it can be targeted by termites. You have to conduct regular maintenance and monitoring. Certain chemicals, although not environmentally friendly, will protect the wood from insects and pests.

What are clients say

I was so impressed with Darrel's wide range of skills and quality of workmanship.  He has a strong work ethic and makes sure the job is done properly before he finishes.  He is dedicated to making the home-owner happy and giving them exactly what they asked for.  He always arrived early and stayed late when the job required him too.  We will definitely use him again for any of our future home projects.
- Jane B. - Allen


Darrel remodeled my bathroom a few months ago. He took care of the tile work, the plumbing, electrical, and painting. People who have seen the remodel are amazed at the transformation and a neighbor ask for his number. He worked very steady and very hard from beginning to end.

When I needed work done on my kitchen, Darrel was the one I called. He installed a new tile floor, new cabinets, counter top, and sink. (He also fixed my broken washing machine.)

Besides being a very good worker, he is also a very good human being. I felt very much at ease going to work and leaving him here in my house unsupervised. The next time I need any kind of work at all done around the house, Darrel is the one I will be calling upon.   - Jerry W. - Carrollton


As an investor, Darrel provided me with a one stop solution for remodeling an investment property.  His knowledge of remodeling saved me thousands.  He completed all work on time and with attention to detail. - David P. - Home Investor


We would highly recommend Darrel at GMS Renovations to anyone looking to remodel his/her home! Darrel did an amazing job remodeling our three bathrooms (completely gutted out master), installing about 2000 sq. ft. of new flooring in our home and redesigning our kitchen ceiling. During the time he was working in our house, he was professional, helpful and above all, did whatever we asked to make sure the job was done right and that we were happy. We are now moving to a new house and are ready to get Darrel started on our next project. He does incredible work for an affordable price.
- Jennifer/Scott S.
