From seamless and Fiber Cement to vinyl, shake, and board and batten, homeowners have many options when it comes to siding. With all of these choices, how can you decide what type is best for your home?
Think about the architectural your home. Whichever siding you choose should fit in well with its style; if you live in a 1920’s bungalow, for example, you might consider a Hardie siding that can be painted to suit the era in which your home was built.
How long do you plan on living in your current home? If you’ve got a young family and to raise and wish to stay in the house until the youngest has left for college, be sure to factor in the cost of replacing and/or repainting the siding about every 10-15 years.
Direct, strong sunlight can take a toll on your siding, fading it unevenly. Extreme cold temperatures and strong winds can crack or peel siding over time. If your region is known for extreme temperatures or changes in temperatures, consider a highly resilient siding. If you live in a mild climate, or your house is positioned so that no one side receives more direct sunlight, you can probably get away with a less expensive option.
Different siding products will have different environmental consequences. Choosing a siding with a long life, or one that is made up of materials that can be recycled can lessen the impact on our environment.
