Q: Can I use maple boards for siding? Will they hold up to the weather? My friend told me they will warp. What do you think?

— Lester, Moran, MI

A: Tom Silva replies: Your friend is right. Maple boards are not a good bet for siding. Try cedar or redwood instead. They'll hold up to the elements better.
