Paint or Stain my cedar clapboard siding?

mrmichaeljmoore

I have gotten a few estimates to paint my ranch style home (cedar clapboard siding).

But one thing the contractors can't seem to agree on is:

Paint or Stain??

My home is in Connecticut, ranch style home that faces due West (so it gets a lot of sun in the evening).

Which is better to use? Paint or Stain?

If there is no definitive answer either way (which is what it seems to me), what are the pros and cons of each?

Finally, any opinions on the various products? Benjamin Moore, etc.

Most of the contractors I got estimates from use Benjamin Moore....which I assume is good quality stuff.

Thanks.
