Fireplace enclosure


Moved in to a house last year and it has a fireplace enclosure on outside of the house they used cheap plywood barn siding and need to replace what is the best replacement material to use in it place. A rot resistant material and should it be plywood then a house wrap and then a exterior siding.

I suspect that using whatever is on the rest of the house would look best. Plywood or OSB then a house wrap and then a exterior siding.

I guess that depends on your budget and your taste. Once you get past the basic construction already mentioned, the finish materials are numerous.
Do you want the fireplace to blend into the house or do you want to be a focal point?

I need to reside the hole house but can't at this time so in the mean time need to tear off what is on there and replace with something it roted and bees are making a home in it.
