What Houzz contributors are saying:
Cedar sidingObstaclesMake sure you check with your homeowners association, if you have one, to make sure it doesn’t prohibit certain materials and colors. Insurance and payment plans. If your home is insured to cover damage from storms or accidents, you may get money to cover the cost of siding repair. But insurance companies will likely only cover the cost to the damaged portion of the home, not the entire siding, so be prepared to foot the extra bill to re-side your whole house or live with a somewhat mismatched area of your house. Heller suggests clients get insurance money first before starting the project to prevent any holdups. Budget. Many contractors offer 12- or 24-month payments for siding so you don’t have to pay everything upfront.
