cedar siding


Hi, I just bought a home and it is sided with cedar. It seems to be bubbling and leaking reddish oil. Is that from the siding and how can I stop this from happening?
It is presently painted.

it could be extractive bleeding or it could be a reaction with previous finishes.Can you post some pics?

The bubbling and leaking you describe will not be from the cedar, if in fact it IS cedar. Western red cedar has nothing in it which will leach from the wood. I am not certain about the eastern white cedar, but I believe it holds for that also.
It sounds to me as though it is from something which has been applied.
As struble asks, can you get a couple of close up pics?

there are tannins and oils in cedar that provide decay resistance that can bleed from the wood
