Question:


i am building a lake cabin in sw mn i would like put log siding on it. i've read that cedar is best but very expensive i found some 10" notty pine reasonable price and like look very much conserned about maintance and how long it will last. would like your opinion on ceder, white pine, spruce, and notty pine siding pros vs cons thank you

Answer:

No matter what you use it is all wood and needs constant maintenance. Cedar is less susceptible to rot, but also has more tannins that make it more likely to peel. Bottom line..they all require maintenance.
