I would just go by how much it would cost to replace the wood, when I am buying the house and try to take it off the purchase price. Therefore, an easy way to figure this out is to find out the labor rate to install new siding and the cost of the materials. Simply say this is the cost to replace the siding vs the cost to perform my maintenance.
Those who trade liberty for security deserve neither.
