Different Types of Siding

When it comes to replacing your siding, you have many materials to choose from, each offering distinct aesthetic and functional benefits. Here are a few kinds of siding you can ask your local roofing company about.

Different Types of Siding

Vinyl

Vinyl siding is one of the more popular types of siding. Easy to maintain, vinyl siding comes in a variety of colors, giving you many choices in terms of design. It’s also extremely durable and can easily withstand severe weather conditions.

Aluminum

Aluminum is very effective in wet climates, making it one of the more popular options. It is also one of the more affordable options.

Fiber Cement

Fiber cement siding is composed of sand, cement and wood fiber made through pressurized steam. It comes in a wide range of styles and textures. In fact, it can even be made to look like wooden planks, giving it that rustic look of authentic wood, but without the weaknesses of actual wood like rot and vulnerability to fire.

Fiberglass

One of the newer types of siding, fiberglass is rising in popularity due to its durability, beauty and convenience. Siding repair also is easier with this material. Given that it requires little to no maintenance, it has become the ideal siding choice for busy homeowners.

Stucco

Stucco is a classic option that has been used for hundreds of years. It provides a home not just with a classic look, but it is also an energy-efficient, fire-resistant and low-maintenance choice.

Wood

The most traditional of all the options available, wood looks beautiful, but it does require a high level of maintenance. It is susceptible to fire and corrosion and may need frequent repairs or replacements.
