Whether replacing old siding or choosing siding for a new build, the choices can seem overwhelming. There are many different siding options, each having a different look, durability level, and price point. Here are some choices that may help you narrow down your decision.
- Vinyl: Vinyl siding has many convincing benefits; it’s affordable, comes in many different colors and styles, and is easy to keep clean. It can easily be installed on new builds but can also be installed over existing siding in certain situations.
- Fiber cement: Boasting many beneficial properties, fiber cement siding has become popular for homeowners, especially those in wet or humid climates. Fiber cement is moisture and rot resistant, will not catch fire, cannot be ruined by pests such as termites, and can withstand rough and dangerous storms.
- Engineered wood: Engineered wood is made of a compressed wood composite, making it a more affordable option than traditional wood vinyl. However, it may not be as durable as a conventional wood option.
- Pine or cedar: Many homeowners like the overall aesthetic traditional wood siding provides. However, this option is not fire-resistant and does not stand up well to insects, water, or UV rays. It is advised that homeowners protect wood siding with a UV seal and water protectant to ensure the durability of their investment.
