Exterior Home Siding Materials
What are Some of the Most Popular Home Siding Materials?
Vinyl Siding - the single most popular option for siding today. Environmentalist detest the long life of vinyl siding but consumers love not needing to paint every few years and the quality has increased in recent years.
Aluminum/Metal Siding - less maintenance than wood siding but not as easy to maintain as vinyl siding. Stainless steel siding requires less maintenance than the more common aluminum.
Wood/Cedar Siding - great beauty and long life characterize wood siding but there is that nasty painting every 4-8 years to contend with.
Brick Siding - About the longest lasting product available it's cost is the only real negative to contend with.
Stone Siding - As long lasting as brick (or longer)but more attractive and expensive! Both Veneer natural siding and faux siding are more affordable options.
Fiber Cement - a very popular siding option over the last few years. A middle ground for cost in between vinyl and wood siding this is definitely an option worth considering.
Stucco Siding - stucco is a very hard low maintenance siding product that has been used for a very long time. Not everyone is partial to the style or appearance of stucco but it is a solid siding product.
Engineered Wood Siding - available in a multitude of textures and finishes engineered wood will require less maintenance than traditional wood siding but will still need more care than several of the options above.
Seamless Steel Siding- seamless steel siding is custom-fit to your home, eliminating unsightly seams or splits in the surface of your siding. Besides the obvious aesthetic benefits, no seam means less opportunity for exposure to the elements.
