Vinyl siding

Durability: One of the main reasons homeowners want to install vinyl siding is because it is long lasting and durable. Vinyl siding can stand up to most weather conditions without worry of severe damage. Newer vinyl is even stronger than the older versions and is less likely to crack and become brittle. In addition, vinyl siding can withstand years of sunlight without fading.

Maintenance: Vinyl siding is easy to maintain. There is no need to ever paint the siding and it never fades from the elements. The only regular maintenance vinyl siding needs is to be spray washed once or twice a year. Vinyl siding has a new look year after year.

Cost Effective: Over the long term, vinyl siding can be cost effective. Siding is much more inexpensive than repainting and repairing wood on a home. The initial cost of vinyl siding will vary depending on the size of the home and the quality of the siding. Vinyl siding comes in many grains and thickness that will affect the total cost. Some also believe that vinyl siding can help reduce energy bills by serving as an extra layer of insulation.

Looks: Vinyl siding comes in many grains and colors to suit most homes. The good news about newer siding is that the color is baked through the vinyl instead of applied. This means that the color stays true over a long period of time and will not show scratches or small imperfections.

Cedar siding

A Wood Of Warmth And Beauty

Cedar Siding is, above all, a wood of exceptional beauty. In its natural, unfinished state, it has a richly textured, tactile grain combined with a palette of warm, mellow tones ranging from light amber to deep honey brown. Cedar Siding also remains subtly aromatic, and the characteristic fragrance of cedar adds another dimension to Cedar Siding’s universal appeal.

The Gift Of Durability
Cedar Siding contains natural oils that act as preservatives to help the wood resist insect attack and decay. Cedar siding is also a dimensionally stable wood that lies flat and stays straight. Properly finished and maintained, Cedar Siding ages gracefully and endures for many years.

Beautiful Benefits
Beauty aside, the purely practical, dollars-and-cents value of cedar siding offers other benefits: the cedar siding wood’s cellular structure creates interior air spaces that give it an insulation value higher than most woods and much higher than brick or concrete. Buildings which feature cedar siding tend to stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Cedar siding also has excellent sound suppression and absorption qualities

Fiber-Cement Siding

Fiber-cement building materials earn green points for durability. Fiber-cement, the new generation of what was once an asbestos-containing material, is today made from Portland cement, sand, clay, and wood fiber. Most fiber-cement siding is available factory primed. It takes paint very well, and proper painting is important for long-term durability.

Pros

  • Considerably more fire-resistant than vinyl or wood siding
  • Imprinted designs imitate wood-grain remarkably well, even from close-up
  • Tougher, stronger than vinyl siding
  • Can be cost-effective when compared to a full-scale refurbishment of wood clapboard.
  • Can be painted, thus giving homeowner more design choices

Cons

  • Cost. Fiber-cement is far more expensive than vinyl siding
  • One advantage–painting–is also its downfall. Exterior painting is difficult and expensive
  • Slower installation time than vinyl (though faster than refurbishing wood siding)
  • Typically not a do-it-yourself job. Most types of siding (and especially fiber-cement) should be installed by professionals
