Capture That Curb Appeal: Wood Look Siding
Do you love the look of wood siding? Are you hesitant to have wood siding installed because of the required maintenance? If that is the case, you should consider alternatives to wood siding that look just like wood without any of the disadvantages.
There are a few options that we can recommend if you want siding that looks like wood. If you decide on one of these the necessary amount of maintenance will be far less than with natural wood siding. Additionally, it is often cheaper to install than cedar siding. They can also often be repaired or partially replaced, if necessary.
Here are three great alternatives for wood look siding. You can take a look at all three and see which one is right for you and your home. Undoubtably, they all raise the curb appeal of your home and make it look beautiful.
The Woodtone Rustic Series™ is a wonderful alternative to traditional wood siding. It is very durable and low maintenance while having the wood look that you love. It combines that traditional look with the advantages of engineered wood siding and fiber cement.
This series is the original two-tone composite wood siding and offers you many beautiful choices. You can pick from 23 different color combinations. Additionally, the Woodtone Rustic Series™ is available in the lap, panel, and shake styles.
Both James Hardie and LP SmartSide can be used as substrates with Woodtone used on top. That way you get all the benefits of each of the materials. The result is a very durable and versatile siding that looks like wood.

James Hardie is the leading manufacturer of fiber cement. They produce superior products that are very durable and virtually maintenance free. They offer a large variety of styles and textures. You can choose fiber cement as a substrate or pick any of the wonderful styles that imitate the wood look.
The James Hardie fiber cement is resistant to impact damage (from hail for example), mold, rot, mildew, and insects. Insects like termites can damage wood siding, even engineered wood siding, but not fiber cement. This will increase the lifespan of your siding and result in it looking great longer.
Fiber cement siding is cheaper than cedar siding to install. You will save even more over the years because it needs far less maintenance. It is very durable and James Hardie offers amazing warranties on top of it, with a 30-year product and 15-year finish warranty.
James Hardie fiber cement siding comes in over 700 colors. With the different styles and colors, you can come as close to cedar wood siding as you would like. That way you can have the look of wood but in durable fiber cement. The curb appeal of your home will drastically increase without the maintenance requirements increasing.
- LP SmartSide
This siding is an engineered wood siding that has the wonderful warm wood look. The biggest advantage of this siding is that it does not need nearly as much maintenance as natural wood siding. It only needs to be painted every five years instead of every other year or so.
The LP SmartSide siding is very durable and engineered to last longer. It is also more resistant to water damage and insects than natural wood. This siding comes with a great warranty which will give you peace of mind for many years to come.
You can choose LP SmartSide as a substrate for the Woodtone Rustic Series™ or by itself. LP offers a wide selection of styles and colors. That way you can get as close to the wood siding look as you want or go with something more contemporary.
