Siding is such an integral component of your home, affecting its curb appeal and energy efficiency while protecting it from the elements day in and day out. That’s why it’s so important to do your research rather than invest in just any cladding. After all, there are so many different types of siding out there, and each offers its own unique features and benefits—how do you know which one is best for your home and budget? Consider the following benefits of three of the most popular siding materials to help you make the best decision:
Vinyl siding is the most popular siding material on the market today because it is so cost effective. While it is more affordable than many other cladding options, it still offers numerous benefits, such as durability and energy efficiency. Furthermore, it is available in a wide array of colors, styles, and other design options, making it an exceptionally versatile choice for homes that are traditional, contemporary, and anything in between.
If you love the charming look of wood but don’t want to deal with the intensive maintenance requirements, fiber cement siding is ideal. Fiber cement is a composite of cement, wood fiber and other sustainable materials that withstand weather and insects exceptionally well compared with other siding materials. While the upfront costs of fiber cement may be higher compared with those of other materials such as vinyl, it lasts for decades without warping or deteriorating. Bonus: It is also fire resistant, so you can rest easy knowing you have an added layer of protection against a house fire.
Engineered wood is an excellent siding choice for homeowners who want the polished look of wood and the durability and low maintenance characteristics of a composite material. Engineered wood siding is treated to protect against termites and rot that are common threats to traditional wood siding. It is also coated with a moisture-resistant overlay that creates a cedar-grain pattern for an authentic wood appearance that ensures you never miss the real thing!
