About Real Cedar
Looking for a foolproof way to crank up your home’s curb appeal? Look no further. Real Cedar shingle siding (say that four times fast!) is hands down the easiest way set your beloved home apart from all the indistinguishable and uninspired facades on your block.
Oh sure, you could go for one of those newfangled cladding designs or trendy paint jobs – of course, then you’d have to worry about your home looking dated within three years. With Real Cedar shingle siding, on the other hand, you still get all the same wow factor – only in a way that’s completely timeless. In fact, like a fine wine, Real Cedar shingle siding only gets better with age as the warm undertones mature into a beautiful lustrous grey patina – in other words, Real Cedar is a total “silver fox!” And now thanks to some of the 8-foot panels on the market, it’s easier than ever to install Real Cedar shingle siding. So there’s no excuse for putting it off anymore – it’s your home’s time to shine.
