Wood siding is one of the most attractive of home siding options. The main drawbacks of wood siding are its high cost and relatively high maintenance needs. Wood siding is available in a wide variety of styles, textures, and finishes.

Typically, people choose either vertical or horizontal wood siding. Another option is the use of thin or thick boards, and/or large wood panels. Modern or contemporary home design often incorporates clean lines and wood siding is a perfect material to use.
