Choosing a beautiful, efficient and long-lasting siding for your home can be an overwhelming task—and that’s partly because of the broad range of materials that are available on the market today. It is important to consider different factors that can affect the performance and value of the material you will install. In this article, a professional roofing contractor breaks down the key ingredients that make up the perfect siding.
Durability and Maintenance
Every homeowner wants a product that can last for a long time, especially when it comes to large investments such as siding replacement. You may require a highly durable material that can bear up against strong winds and heavy snow, as well as hot, humid temperatures during the summer. It’s also best to learn about repair and maintenance schedules before choosing your siding.
Vinyl is one of the most durable materials. It can resist weathering across all seasons, however, it isn’t exactly fire-resistant. Fiber cement is another great option. Commonly warrantied for 50 years or more, it can resist expanding and contracting with temperature changes.
Cladding your exterior from the basement to roofline, siding is a crucial element in curb appeal. If you want to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home, an expert roofer recommends searching for material, texture, and color that work well with the overall style of your house.
Stone looks naturally attractive and classy on certain homes; wood siding gives off an effortless home-like, rustic charm; while aluminum siding comes in a variety of styles and finishes.
Budget is another important factor in siding replacement. Your project estimates will vary depending on the material you want to install, the size of your house and the expertise of the contractor. Vinyl and aluminum are often two of the most affordable options, while brick and stone fall in much higher price ranges.
