How to Choose the Best Siding for Your Climate

When tackling a siding installation project, you shouldn’t only consider the cost, warranty, style and color of the products available. You also need to determine whether your siding is right for your local climate.

Ridgeline Construction Roofing & Exteriors, one of the top local siding and roofing companies, shares the features you need to look out for when choosing the best siding for your climate.

Heat Resilience

Property damage as a result of concentrated sunlight during the summer is not that common, though it may occur under a unique set of conditions. This includes siding distortion, also known as “melted” siding. So, you must choose a siding material that can stand up to the sweltering summer heat.

Moisture Resistance

In wet and humid areas in Alabama and Florida, choose siding that can resist water absorption, which ensures that the siding won’t flake and rot. For further protection against wind-blown moisture brought about by rainfall, roof repair companies like ours recommend that your roof should have a good overhang as well.

Making Your Choice

When making your siding selection, consider your choice of contractor as well. Refrain from entertaining out-of-state home improvement companies that offer too-good-to-be-true prices. Apart from their shady credentials and low-quality workmanship, it is possible that they are offering siding products that are not engineered for the local climate.

This is why you should only choose siding from Ridgeline Construction Roofing & Exteriors. We can repair or replace any type of siding, including vinyl and fiber cement siding. Speaking of the latter, we offer various siding products from James Hardie®, which leverage the HardieZone® system that ensures that your siding can withstand your local conditions.
