Best Woods for Siding
Choosing the best material to withstand the elements
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?

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.
