5 Types of House Siding to Think About

With many different types of siding, you need to know what you are buying when looking for siding for your house. Here are a few types of siding that you should think about when buying new siding for your house. 

Vinyl Siding 

Vinyl Siding is an increasingly popular, low maintenance, cost efficient siding for your home. Vinyl Siding comes in many different colors as well as different styles. It is very easy to install and can even be a DIY project. Vinyl is perfect for your house if you are looking for a new affordable, good looking siding. 


While brick has a high cost for the materials as well as the installation, it is a classic look. Having a brick exterior can be costly, but it will be sure to last a long time with very little maintenance. Brick being strong and fire resistant is always a great choice for your house that will not go out of style. You also have the ability of painting the brick any color, which adds an extra element to having a brick house. 


Wood siding brings a very natural look to a house, but it does come with its cons. Wood siding is expensive and is not easy to keep up. Wood siding requires regular maintenance, but it can be replaced relatively easily. It is easy to change the color by painting it or putting a new stain on your wood, which most people love.  


Metal siding is not as popular as some of the other types of siding, but it does have its benefits. Although it is expensive, most people find it to be worth it in the long run because of the low maintenance and durability. Metal siding is also susceptible to being dented or damaged because of its light weight. Metal can also rust depending on the climate that you are living in, so be careful when picking out metal siding. 

Fiber Cement 

Fiber cement is a man-made siding, which is a combination of cement, sand, water, and fibers. Fiber cement is known for how long it has the ability to last, which can be up to 50 years. It requires little to no maintenance, which increases its value to homeowners. Fiber cement is a good looking natural siding that can come in many different colors and styles. 

There are many different types of siding that you can choose from, but these are the five that we recommend you think about.
