Types of Siding for Your Home
The purpose of siding is primarily to protect the interior structure of a home and secondarily to present an attractive appearance of the property. Choosing the right home siding is a big decision and requires you to evaluate options and consider factors such as cost and durability.
Many Maryland homeowners and builders choose vinyl siding because it is durable, water-resistant, and requires little or no maintenance such as painting.
Vinyl siding comes in many different styles including straight board and cedar shake,that produce an aesthetically pleasing appearance. Vinyl siding is made to withstand the heavy wind and impact from hail. In addition, vinyl resists excessive moisture, meaning it will not rot or corrode over time. Adding to its popularity, many vinyl sidings comply with specific green practices, making them an environmentally-friendly siding option.
Insulated Vinyl Siding: Insulated vinyl siding includes all of the advantages of traditional vinyl siding, with the bonus of being exceptionally energy-efficient. Insulated siding offers superior durability, environmental benefits, savings on monthly energy bills, and added protection against mold, rot, and mildew.
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding is made from cement, wood fiber, sand, and other components. This type of siding is termite-resistant, water-resistant, and non-combustible. Although fiber cement siding may need to be painted every 7 to 10 years, its overall durability and minimal environmental impact make it a viable vinyl alternative in any climate. Cement fiber siding can create the appearance of natural wood without wood’s maintenance. It is naturally bug, rot, and water-resistant. As does vinyl, fiber cement siding offers many customizable options for color and style. Fiber cement siding provides superior weather protection and durability. A bonus of fiber cement siding is its insulation qualities mean better home energy efficiency. Fiber cement siding is thicker than regular vinyl and can be shaped into a variety of textures and styles, such as wood grain.
Wood siding is highly versatile and comes in a variety of styles, including shingles, clapboards, drop siding, and vertical boards. Wood siding can be painted or stained virtually any color and provides more insular and structural benefits compared to thinner siding materials. Although susceptible to ant and termite damage, wood siding can give your home a unique, timeless quality with proper care and maintenance. Wood siding is very durable. It can last longer than vinyl siding.
Color of Wood Siding:
- Western Red Cedar – While this wood is more costly, it is the longest-lasting wood siding available. You can paint it or stain it to retain that rich wood look.
- Douglas Fir – This is a great middle-of-the-road choice that includes durability with a nice smooth finish for a traditional look.
Styles of Wood Siding:
- Cove Lap – the oldest and most traditional design that features a decorative groove at the top of every board.
- Channel Rustic Lap Siding – a smooth-finished siding without cracks or splits.
- Bevel Siding – the most common choice with cedar siding, with a simple but beautiful appearance.
Metal Siding: Aluminum and Steel
Metal siding tends to lend a retro or modern style to a house. Common materials include aluminum and steel. This siding option does not mold or rot, and when sealed properly won’t rust or discolor. Metal siding comes in a broad range of styles, including horizontal and vertical strips and panels, as well as shingles. At a distance, it is hard to distinguish metal siding from wood. It typically includes a factory-applied finish for maximum corrosion resistance. Plain, unfinished panels are usually galvanized for corrosion protection.
Aluminum siding has developed into a very low-maintenance and popular siding choice for newer homes. It is relatively affordable and easy to install because it is light-weight and easy to cut.
Aluminum siding is entirely recyclable, energy-efficient, and environmentally friendly. It comes in different textures and patterns.
It is long-lasting and maintains its appearance because protective chromium is mixed in with the steel, unlike the zinc coating on galvanized steel that eventually wears away. Steel siding offers fire and water resistance and can withstand extreme weather. It is more expensive because of its weight.
