I am siding my own house and am considering using finger-jointed cedar. Since it is my own house, I'm willing to take more risks than on a customer's. The price and the 16' lengths are attractive, but obviously having finger joints pull apart etc. is a concern. This is a factory primed product that I am painting with latex. Also using a rainscreen. So I would like to hear from people who have used the product successfully or unsuccessfully.
Yes, I know about fiber cement.
