How Long Should Wood Siding Last?

How Long Should Wood Siding Last Does this sound like you? You want to update the siding on your home, but you don’t know which siding option to buy. Indeed, there are numerous siding options available, including aluminum, vinyl, composite, fiber cement, fiberglass, and wood, and they all boast to be the best option for your home. However, thanks to its durable construction and visually pleasing appearance, you are most intrigued by wood siding. It is clearly the perfect complement to the Northern Virginia landscape where your home resides. Yet, taking care of wood siding is notoriously hard work. You must commit a lot of time and maintenance to make sure it looks good year after year. But, how long should your new wood siding last with this extra work?

The Lifespan of Wood Siding

Thankfully, with a little maintenance, your wood siding should last for at least 20 years. If you take special care, then your wood siding could last as long as 40 years. However, there are some variables that can affect the longevity of your wood siding. These include the quality of your paint, finish, and sealant water exposure, wood type, and siding style.

Tips for Maintenance

To ensure that that your wood siding lives up to its maximum lifespan, make sure to:

  • Protect it from moisture with paint, stain, and clear sealants
  • Keep it away from the ground to reduce rotting and fungal growth
  • Wash your siding regularly
  • Repaint and reseal it every two to five years
  • Replace damaged panels immediately to prevent further damage
