I’m not sure exactly which forum should go in… so I’ll play it safe and post it here. I have a Tudor style house (25 years or so old) with lots of siding on it.
While it may look ok from a distance, seen up close the wood is old and rotting, with nails coming out. It’s about time for me to replace all the old siding and trim. The question is, “With what?” I’ve done a bit of research and it seems I have a number of options, each with pros and cons. What I’ve come up with so far are:
1) pressure treated lumber
I am sure there are other options out there as well that I haven’t come across yet. My question is this. What would YOU use for this project and WHY? I will be doing the work of replacement with my son and maybe one or two others to help, not hiring a “professional crew.” I am sure that there are many people on this forum that have vastly more experience with this kind of thing than I have. Please, share your experience and advice with me.
