I was building my own siding but I am getting impatient and want to
finish shop construction this year. The building is to look like a
small barn so vertical siding is the most appropriate choice. I am
surprised that there is not much available here in Indiana. I have found one place that will supply 1x8 T&G or shiplap pine boards which are primed on all sides ready to be painted. The price sounds reasonable at $140/square. Some other lumberyards who have panel products are saying that pine will not last very long.
Can anyone tell me how long on average well maintained pine siding
My 2nd option is to use the engineered panel siding by LP. I just do not like the looks of panels.
