Repairing Damaged Cedar Siding Using the Festool TS 55

Fast set-up and break-down of material cutting area. 

A contractor who uses Festool recently did some repair of cedar siding for a customer's 5,000 square foot vaction home in Southampton, NY.

Small, patchwork areas of damaged cedar siding needed to be replaced in numerous locations.  This was accomplished more quickly & accurately because they didn’t have to move a cumbersome table saw around the perimeter of the house. Instead, the Festool TS 55 was used to cut/install siding onsite in narrow spaces. New siding was easily measured, cut, and install in individual sections to line up precisely with the original (which is stained grey in the photo) cedar siding.
