Types of Siding Materials

There are many different types of siding materials available for homes. Each material has its own benefits and drawbacks, so it is important to consider these factors when deciding which material is right for your home. Siding materials include:

Vinyl Siding

Since the early 1960s, vinyl siding has been a popular choice due to its low-maintenance properties. The only thing you typically have to do is wash it once or twice a year. It’s also inexpensive as siding materials go. Today’s manufacturers offer vinyl in many colors and patterns to emulate real wood siding. However, it also has many disadvantages. It can easily be torn off a home in high winds, and hail can crack or put holes in it.

Fiber Cement Siding

Companies like James Hardie have perfected this new siding material. It’s made from a mixture of cement, sand and wood fiber that is cured with pressurized steam to increase its strength and dimensional stability. Looking at fiber cement siding, you may think it’s real wood. Other benefits include its resistance to rot, fire, wind and insects. Because fiber cement doesn’t expand or contract like wood, it holds paint exceptionally well.

Aluminum Siding

Before vinyl siding, aluminum siding was the leading siding product. It has lost market share because it easily dents and fades faster than other siding products. It tends to have little dimension. On the other hand, aluminum doesn’t crack or rot is low-maintenance and fireproof and comes in a variety of styles and colors.

Wood Siding

Wood is one of the oldest siding materials. Because wood siding requires frequent maintenance, particularly in regions with extremes of moisture and temperature, it has lost ground to low-maintenance siding materials in recent decades. Some homeowners still love the natural look and the ability to paint or stain it, so it remains an option some homeowners choose for new siding despite the maintenance required.
