How to Choose the Best Siding for a House

Get tips for choosing the best siding material for your home.

Choosing Siding for Your Home

The siding you choose for your home matters. Re-siding your home can be a major investment. But the right siding makes it worth it. The siding you pick impacts things like energy efficiency, maintenance, attractiveness, and property value. Popular siding options include Engineered Wood, Fiber Cement, and Vinyl. Engineered Wood siding consists of wood fiber or strand, resin and binders, and zinc borate. It’s lighter weight than fiber cement, easier to install and maintain, has curb appeal and is durable. Fiber Cement is a composite made from a mix of Portland cement and wood pulp. It’s durable and resistant to fire and insects. Some drawbacks of fiber cement are its weight and recommended practices with installation related to tools and product composition. Vinyl siding is made from polyvinyl chloride, the same plastic used in water sewer pipes. It’s energy-efficient and relatively affordable. But the color might fade under UV and sunlight and it’s vulnerable to warping. You should also ponder the siding profile, architectural style, regional preferences, and homebuyer preferences. Also, find a dealer who understands the manufacturer’s installation requirements.
