Your choice of material is one of the most important factors that determine your home’s comfort, energy efficiency and longevity. This includes siding. To better understand which siding type best fits you, you’ll need to look at the features, benefits and possible disadvantages of each option. You can easily do this by having a thorough consultation with a trusted remodeling company.
Durability, versatility and ease of maintenance are the qualities that set vinyl siding apart. It has the ability to withstand high winds reaching up to 110 mph or higher, is available in multiple colors and only needs minimal washing to keep it looking new.
Fiber cement is the perfect siding alternative for homeowners who want the genuine look of wood without the hassles generally associated with it. Unlike wood, you won’t have problems with termites, water damage and fire hazards. It’s a reinforced siding that can last up to 50 years. A good roofing company, such as Up and Above Contractors, offers fiber cement as part of their home improvement services.
There was a time when every homeowner wanted this siding option. It has lost ground since due to the availability of more modern materials on the market, especially because it can dent and fade. It is still a viable siding option because of its rot resistance and minimal maintenance requirements, though.
The most traditional of siding options, wood comes in either shake or clapboard form. It’s been in use for as long as siding has been needed for houses. While it is an attractive choice, it should be noted that wood is prone to issues, such as chipping, flammability, water damage, rotting, sanding, termite infestation and warping.
