A popular choice for homeowners since the late 80’s, Vinyl siding provides an economic, maintenance-free product of a uniform color throughout. Homeowners must be careful to research the various products available as there are many different grades. Vinyl siding offers many different accessories that can compliment an otherwise basic job.
Because of expansion and contraction, vinyl used to be only offered in lighter colors, but great strides in technology have been made to provide darker colors. Most recently, insulated or foam backed vinyl siding has made it so that wider profiles can be offered to mimic cedar and cement board with no maintenance.
Steel siding offers a premium alternative that can overcome many of the shortfalls of other sidings. Because there is much less expansion than vinyl siding, steel offers flatter walls, less noticeable seams, and is available in light and dark colors. Steel is also available in a wide range of styles.
Cedar & Wood Siding
Cedar siding will be around as long as we have lumber. Cedar siding like its roof counterpart, creates a very distinguished and exquisite look. However, it requires much upkeep and maintenance to keep it looking good over the years.
If you have cedar siding, you no doubt have encountered woodpeckers from one time or another. South side exposures tend to need more attention due to sun that is very hard on wood sidings. Homeowners should stain or paint cedar every three to five years to maintain its look.
