Should I replace my vertical cedar siding?

i think a vertical panel would look better at least in the front..just my opinion

You can somewhat mitigate that with a variation on the exposure but nothing looks as tall as vertical runs.

Should I replace my vertical cedar siding?

So any regrets with the cedar to Hardie on your home? I am in need of a more durable siding also, I have lost the war with Woodpeckers, insects, and other rodents... I have covered at least two dozen 2" to 4" holes at various points in my siding. Tried having the house sprayed to no avail. Oh yes and lets not forget the yellow jackets in my attic space. A friend bought some 12X paint to cover his deck and I was impressed, so I was wondering if that paint could be used on siding also? I was told by a store clerk that it was to heavy and that there was a 4X option to use. Not cheap but would be easier than filling in holes and fighting with the locals who choose to live here with me. I have bat and board. Anyone ever used this paint on siding verses decks and concrete? Would like to know the outcome if you have.
