Relative costs of siding: cedar shingle, clapboard, Hardiplank?
In a perfect world I would love to see oil-stained cedar shingles on our house reno, but the budget is so tight that if we can't trim it, we can't afford to do it this year.
I know I can get prices from the lumberyard, but off the top of your head, do you know what the least expensive siding is (not vinyl or aluminum, though)? We used pine clapboards (painted) on a previous old-house reno -to match existing- and that was fairly cheap if I recall.... but I have no idea how it compares to the other options. Anyone priced these out lately? I am in New England...
