Posted on March 13th, 2015
Looking to add more color and meaning to your house? What can be a better way than a perfect siding that gives the aesthetics and the appeal to your house while also giving protection to the exterior facade of your house? Find out some of the most popular type of siding options, their greatest quality and their biggest flaws:
Wood: Wood, no doubt, has been one of the most popular choices among homeowners when it comes to choosing the best material for sidings. However, with the introduction of a myriad of other easy to maintain materials in the market, wood has lost its importance greatly. Wood needs to be maintained and taken care of regularly and also do not have good insulation properties.
Vinyl: Irrespective of the climate, vinyl gives an extremely good performance. Besides, it also does not demand much maintenance and cleaning once a year with soap and water is enough to keep up the good look. But, it also comes with certain drawbacks. Vinyl sidings are not available in as sleek design as the other options. This is because of the trim pieces that are placed at the doors and windows.
Composite: The biggest disadvantage with composite sidings is that they are tough to work with. They may also require specific tools for cutting and therefore is much costlier than vinyl sidings. However, the good news is that composite sidings are fireproof and resistant to rot.
