Fiber Cement Siding

This type of siding is known for its ability to effectively mimic the look of a wealth of different materials, including masonry, stucco, wood, and other exterior cladding materials. Aside from appearance, however, it offers a lot in terms of practical benefits. For one thing, fiber cement siding is low-maintenance. It can also stand up well against factors that can cause damage, such as extreme temperatures, water and moisture, UV rays, fire and pests. Available in a wide variety of styles, textures and profiles, fiber cement siding is an option most often associated with top manufacturer James Hardie™.

Cedar Siding

A more traditional material, cedar siding is a type of wood siding that is most ideal for cottage-style homes. It gives the home a rustic, timeless appeal. Wood siding such as cedar shake siding is relatively durable and long-lasting as long as it is installed and maintained properly. Well-maintained cedar siding brings uniqueness and stability to the home.  LP Siding is the most trusted manufacturer of high-quality cedar siding today.

Vinyl Siding

This type of siding has become largely popular because of its generally low cost, aesthetic versatility, and maintainability. Vinyl siding comes in a wide range of colors and styles. Some products are even designed to mimic the look of other siding materials. Vinyl siding is also easy to install, so labor costs are also relatively more affordable.

Indeed, it can be a challenge to choose from among these siding materials, given that each has unique benefits to offer. To make things easier,  talk to a trusted and experienced exterior improvement contractor in your area who can properly evaluate your home and your needs, and give you solid professional recommendations based on their assessment.
