Siding contributes to your home’s visual theme and helps protect it from the elements. When it comes to siding, there are four materials in particular that are popular for their form, function and cost.
Vinyl siding is one of the most popular options for residential homeowners, with around 30% of homes using vinyl. Vinyl siding has been around since the 1950s and has remained a popular choice since. It’s affordable, easy to install, and requires a lot less maintenance than other siding materials because it doesn’t need to be painted, or repainted. It still does require regular maintenance in the form of occasional washing to eliminate mold and dirt that develops on the siding.
Though aluminum siding has diminished in popularity since the 1970s, it remains a popular choice because of its durability and minimal necessary maintenance. It’s fireproof and won’t rust, unlike steel, and is 100% recyclable.
Seamless steel, on the other hand, is a favorite of both homeowners and contractors. Unlike other siding materials, seamless steel is cut to the dimensions of your home, avoiding an unattractive seam. The lack of a seam also prevents moisture from seeping in and causing mold and rot underneath the siding. It also lasts a long time, with some manufacturers offering warranties of more than 50 years.
Lastly, fiber cement siding is another siding option that can last just as long as seamless steel. It is made of cement, sand and wood fiber and comes in a variety of textures and colors. Not sure which siding option is right for you? That’s where John Beal Roofing comes in.
