Looking to get that natural weathered look on your wood siding? Unfortunately, nature might not give you the consistent look you want. Here's how to help it along.
There is a comfortable elegance to the smooth gray, "Cape Cod" look of weathered siding. Achieving it, however, may not be as easy as leaving it to nature. When wood siding weathers without any additional treatment, it could get an uneven look due to a disproportionate exposure to moisture and sunlight.
Choose the right exterior stain color and opacity for your home's wood siding.
Vertical surfaces require far less maintenance and preventive treatment than horizontal.
