This really depends on a couple things. Budget, maintenance importance, curb appeal and age of structure. If you want a low maintenance exterior and never have to paint again, vinyl siding is the best decision.
If you want a modern style siding with curb appeal and Shake or Board and Batten accents on walls and don’t mind paying to paint every 7-10 years, James HardiePlank is a great option.
Cedar is the most expensive and will eventually rot. We do not recommend any wood siding here in the Portland OR, Vancouver WA and surrounding areas. Many residential homes and multi family buildings have T1-11 panel siding which also rots very easily.
