Wood Siding House
Wood Siding Completes a House
Welcoming, comfortable, endearing; these are words people often use to describe houses finished with all natural wood siding. Few building materials are as charming and beautiful as wooden clapboard and shingles. Prized for its warmth and workability, wood siding is a perfect choice for finishing the exterior of upscale homes and home additions.
Wood siding comes in many species and grades. What you choose usually depends on how you plan to finish the siding. Using a clear sealer or semi-transparent stain highlights the grain, but you'll need to select more expensive grades of wood that are free of knots and other blemishes. Choose less-expensive grades for use with paint or opaque stains.
Cape Cod Finished Wood Siding takes this to another level. Their all-wood siding solutions let homeowners enjoy the benefits of natural wood with a low maintenance finish. Wood siding adds prestige and increases a building's value, and it makes new houses look warm and cozy.
Wood is beautiful and versatile and Eastview Homes offers a wide range of siding options to compliment your home’s design, the neighbourhood and your own personal style. Whether you choose a classic horizontal clapboard or vertical board & batten, or a sleek contemporary channel, Eastview Homes gives you artistic license to get creative and add your own signature style to your house.
Eastview Homes prefers working with Cape Cod Finished Wood Siding which comes pretreated and ready to install. The coating is good for ten years and afterwards the colour can be refreshed with the application of an architectural coating. Architectural coatings are surface coverings such as paints and stains applied to buildings and exterior structures. Coatings are multi-functional in that they are decorative but also protective. They reduce the effort needed to clean the sides of buildings and structures, and provide protection against moisture and rot which extends the life of wood.
Architectural coatings available for wood generally include paints, stains, varnishes and water repellents. There are a number of ways to classify coatings. One common method is to differentiate based on appearance. Coatings are often identified as: 1) Opaque; 2) semi-transparent or 3) transparent. These terms indicate how much of the natural wood features will be visible through the finish.

Natural wood siding works well with paint and stains which gives more design options to homeowners who choose to customize the appearance. By contrast, vinyl and aluminum siding may look pretty, but they do not easily hold paint and stain the same as organic materials and that means homeowners must either pay higher costs or accept the synthetic materials’ more limited paint / stain options.
Horizontal patterns that lay flat against the wall such as tongue-and-groove, shiplap, and channel rustic are milled with edges that interlock to shed rain.
Vertical siding such as board-and-batten is generally nailed to wooden strips that are attached across wall studs. As its name suggests, board-and-batten siding is made by nailing boards vertically along a wall and then covering the spaces between the boards with narrow strips of wood called battens or “batts.”
Board-and-batten siding doesn’t seal out blustery weather quite as effectively as most patterns of lapping or interlocking horizontal siding, so it’s best reserved for temperate climates. Because it runs vertically, it can’t be nailed directly to wall studs; instead, it is applied over solid sheathing or fastened to horizontals.
Natural wood siding creates the timeless, finished look yearned for by many modern consumers. Although typically associated with higher upfront costs, the increase of curb appeal and monetary value from designing a home with this material has more and more builders revisiting this classic aesthetic.

Adds Value to Houses

Although typically associated with slightly higher upfront costs, the increased curb appeal and property valuation is dramatic. Houses with wood siding appears more comfortable and get more attention in competitive real estate markets.
Easily and Effectively Treated
Natural wood loves paint and stain, and so it gives designers more options and homeowners enjoy more creative license. They have more freedom to modify the colours knowing they can easily paint it themselves. Vinyl, plastic, and aluminum may look pretty, but they do not easily hold paint and stain which forces homeowners to either pay higher costs for customization or accept the material's limited options.

Due to the recent success of tiny and sustainable living movements, new focus has been put on using renewable and eco-friendly materials such as natural wood to complete a home’s exterior. Wood itself, of course, is biodegradable, and depending on the brand and origin of the lumber used can actually be produced using less energy than vinyl and aluminum alternatives.
