The gables of my 1951 home are sided with vertical cedar boards. At some point they were painted white, then later covered with aluminum siding. The aluminum siding needs to go, and I'm trying to decide if I should replace it with vinyl, or instead, repaint the cedar siding, or strip it and stain. They are high and hard to get to, and I'd likely need to hire someone each time they needed paint or stain.
Was hoping some folks with long-term experience with cedar siding can give some opinions about this. The cedar planks appear to be in good shape.
