Wood Siding

Many people love wood siding. They get the benefit of a beautiful veneer without the hassle of having to care for actual wood. In fact, wood clapboard is one of the oldest types of building materials, and you can still see this in historic homes in the United States. There are different styles of wood siding available, such as wood planks, boards, panels, and shingles, so you can customize the look of your home. However, wood siding can be a bit pricey, and it does require more maintenance than other types of siding.

Metal Siding

Metal as a building material has grown in popularity in recent years due to its longevity, durability, and aesthetics. This building material is low maintenance and comes in many styles, including horizontal or vertical strips, panels, and shingles. Metal siding can resemble wood siding quite closely. You can apply metal siding directly over wood siding, and now there are special plastic or vinyl coatings that you can put over metal or aluminum siding that will slow down the fading and weathering process significantly.

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding is one of the most popular siding choices and one of the most affordable. It comes in many styles, such as horizontal and vertical panels, as well as many colors. Vinyl siding is very low maintenance; it never needs to be painted. Repairs are super simple with only the panel requiring replacement if it cracks. However, vinyl siding is very durable and very resistant to heavy wind, hail, and rain, which helps to prevent rotting of wood and corrosion. Vinyl siding is also easy to install, won’t warp, and is very long-lasting.
