Educating yourself on all the Different Siding Types & Advantages

When it comes to choosing new siding for your home, it’s important to arm yourself with knowledge. After all, knowledge is power so let’s get started. When it comes to siding types, you will be faced with a handful of options. One type of siding is aluminum siding. This is not a good siding choice at all! A respected company won’t even sell this product. It’s hard to keep clean, dents easily and is not energy efficient.

If you’re looking for a more rustic look for your home, wood siding is an option. It is very strong and durable, however, with wood siding you will have a good amount of maintenance to deal with. To keep the wood in tip top shape, you will have to regularly stain it. This requires maintenance, at least, every two to five years, depending on the stain that you use.

Another option is fiber cement siding. This choice can be made to look similar to wood siding and has a lot of the same characteristics. Problems with this type of siding were serious and included problems with asbestos. You can rest assured that fiber cement siding no longer contains asbestos or anything harmful to your health. Fiber cement siding is durable and will last a long time but it does come with a hefty price tag. You will also have to re-caulk the joints periodically but if you choose pre-colored siding, you will not have to paint or stain the siding.

Last but not least, vinyl siding is a solid choice because it is energy efficient, economical, and available in a wide array of different colors. It’s also incredibly durable in all sorts of inclement weather and is extremely low maintenance. How does power washing it every few years or so, sound? That’s how easy and convenient, vinyl siding is!
