If there is a key material in the aesthetic of a building it certainly has to be siding. This exterior material is mostly applied on structure walls to protect them from the effects and damages of the weather. Siding can transform the appearance of your home dramatically.

Siding material comes in different thicknesses, materials, colors and finishes resulting in what may seem like an overwhelming amount of choices. We can guide you to the right solution for you and your home. Here's a quick overview of the most common types of siding.

Different Types of Siding

Siding can be made of cement fiber, aluminum, wood or vinyl. Depending on the material, it may be installed horizontally, vertically, in panels or shake/shingles.

Cement Fiber - This material is the newest out there. Usually made from recyclable materials it's environmentally friendly. Cement fiber siding can look like wood to the untrained eye due to its detailed finish. It comes in shingle, panel or beveled styles. Rot or insect damage is not an issue with this very durable material.

Aluminum siding – This is a material that is available in an assortment of colors, styles and metals. Aluminum siding has been around for years and is known as a low maintenance, durable choice, but it can dent easily and does not help with noise insulation.

Wood siding – The beauty of wood siding is timeless and lends a classic look to historic or older homes. Despite this beauty, wood siding requires diligent maintenance, specifically frequent painting. Wood siding can also be subject to rot and insect damage. However it comes in many styles, finishes and textures that will appeal to the homeowner that is looking to give their home that time-honored look.

Vinyl siding – This material is readily available in a stunning array of color choices and textures. It tends to crack in cold temperatures when struck with impact, otherwise it is a low maintenance choice. Vinyl siding is a great choice if you want to cover existing wood siding. However, if not installed correctly it will buckle or warp, so it is critical that you select a company like ours with years of experience with siding.
