Siding Types & Which is the Best Fit for your Home

If you’re thinking about siding for your home, there are a lot of choices to consider when deciding which is the best fit for your home. Some are high-quality and others will more than likely cause you problems. The first thing you need to do is choose a high quality and experienced company. Here at Precision Home Products, we only put our name on the very best products and that includes our vinyl siding. Our product is definitely a standout product. We are proud to carry the American Classic Insulated Siding. It is fused with contoured insulating foam and is so energy efficient it has earned the Good Housekeeping Seal. It is a proven product that will lower your heating and cooling bills every month. While our Vinyl Siding is a great choice, there are other options worth checking out. Years ago, there weren’t many options when it came to siding. Times have definitely changed.

Home siding is now available in many materials including:

  • Vinyl siding
  • Wood siding.
  • Aluminum or steel siding.
  • Cement fiber siding.

Let’s start with Vinyl siding. A very popular option. Installation is crucial to a job well done. Make sure you choose an experienced company. Cost is lower to moderate and maintenance is very low. It also never needs to be painted.

Wood siding or Wood Clapboard siding is perhaps the oldest type of house siding and is gorgeous on historic or older homes. A big downfall is that it is very high maintenance and requires yearly painting and caulking.

Because wood siding is so high maintenance, home owners were craving other options. This is when Aluminum/Steel siding came onto the scene. Aluminum siding has proven to be much more low maintenance compared to wood siding. It has increased in popularity especially when used in newer homes. This siding option is available in a wide variety of textures and colors. It is a very durable but some downsides include the fact that painted finishes can significantly fade. Aluminum can also dent and be noisier than other siding. It can also be more expensive than other siding choices.

Cement Fiber Siding looks a lot like natural wood without some of the drawbacks of wood. The cost for this type of siding is in the moderate to high range. It is virtually maintenance free and you will not have the problems with insects that you have with natural wood.

These are just a few of the more popular siding options. You have a lot of choices when deciding which is the best fit for your home. We here at Precision Home Products, would love the opportunity to come out and meet you and help you choose the right siding for your home. We do excellent work and treat our customers like family.
