My wife likes the look and color of real natural cedar siding...that is, when it is new and fresh and not turned to basically she likes the look for the first one or two months the siding is new.

Our house has cedar siding, but it was always painted a color. 50 years later the siding is cracked and beyond repair. Time to replace.

I have seen down in beach communities the same cedar-style siding, but in painted fashion, molded in vinyl. I have also seen weathered-look siding (clapboard-style) made to look like faded paint or stain.

Does anyone make a cedar-look-alike siding that also has the color of unweathered natural cedar? It does not necessarily need to be vinyl, but I do not want to replace or paint or stain any of this again.

Thanks - TomR

You can get wood textured FC boards.

Then stain them with a product like this.
