Cedar Siding Maintenance, Installation, and Repair in Greater Washington

Cedar shingle siding is made from natural cedar, which offers homeowners the natural look of wood without the maintenance required of wood clapboard siding. Cedar shingles are typically stained in browns, grays and other earthen tones and blend in well with the natural environments of Northern Virginia and Southern Maryland. 
Cedar siding quick facts 
  • Cedar shingle siding is durable and has a natural resistance to rot and insect infestation.
  • It holds up well to the elements, rain, hail, snow and winds.
  • Cedar invites woodpeckers, so attentiveness and diligence may be required on part of the homeowner to prevent damage.
  • Cedar shingles are susceptible to mold and mildew if not well maintained.
  • Cedar shingles should be treated and stained every five years to maintain durability and resistance to the elements, mold and rot.
  • With proper installation and care, cedar shingles may last up to 75 years.
Cedar siding cost comparison
  • Cedar shingle siding is more expensive to manufacture than vinyl siding, is considered a higher-quality product, and these components of cost and quality are reflected in the price when compared to vinyl.
  • The homeowner must also take into consideration the cost of upkeep and maintenance, and time allowance, through the years when deciding upon the best and most appropriate siding material.

Exterior Medics recently accomplished a face lift of our front porch and carport. We had three windows replaced and removed shutters and replaced vinyl siding with James Hardie board and batten panels. We also installed vinyl soffit coverage to entire carport and porch ceilings. Finally, we blocked out our 7 existing wooden columns around porch and carport with PVC. Everything was painted and it looks fantastic! We were pleased with Ben, our sales representative who guided us through our concept to get to our vision of the project locked in. Eric Holmes, the project manager provided excellent communication through the scheduling and during the actual construction phase by discussing each detail of the renovation to assure he and the crew were clear on our expectations of what the finished product should look like. He visited with us and the crew on site on the morning before the work got started and was there to rectify a problem with the supplies that were delivered. And called on the second day to check on the progress and after completion to check on our satisfaction. The 3 man crew led by “Chapes” was phenomenal. They were very skilled and made suggestions as the work progressed to make the final outcome even better than we hoped. I appreciated their experience and expertise very much.

When I decided to replace my crummy vinyl siding, I was referred to Exterior Medics by a trusted contractor who said "they won't be the cheapest, but they'll do the best work and it'll last a lifetime." Exterior Medics quickly scheduled a consultation with Ron, who walked me through a range of options, products, and price points. He was extremely knowledgeable and made time for multiple follow-ups that accommodated my busy schedule and my first-time homeowner's need to understand every last detail. We designed a project I love, and he was able to make it work with my budget. His wasn't the lowest quote I received, but Ron gave me confidence that the quality of the work and the professionalism of the company were worth it.

I am employed with an HOA Management company, and we work very closely with Exterior Medics for a number of our communities' needs. Melanie has excellent customer service skills, she is very professional, and always quick to respond to emails or phone calls. I would definitely recommend this company if you care about quality service and workmanship!

Replaced old vinyl with new. Wrapped all windows with vinyl trim. Did an outstanding job. I would recommend them for any job they have listed. Completely cleaned up after the work was done.
