Vinyl siding has been around since the 1950s, proving its reliability. Vinyl siding is low maintenance and cost effect and is available in various widths, exposures, and designs. With high-pressure injection mold technology, vinyl siding can be manufactured to exhibit realistic “faux” wood grains. In addition to standard lap, vinyl siding offers designs in board and batten, shake or scallop panels, and even in stone.
Engineered Wood Siding:
Natural wood products are difficult to find, costly, high maintenance, and not long-lasting. For these reasons, engineered wood siding products were developed for the consumer to offer cost-effective, low-maintenance siding with a natural wood appearance. These engineered wood siding products were designed to eliminate the flaws that natural hardwoods have. This siding is weather-resistant, long-lasting, damage resistant from insects and small rodents, and environmentally friendly. Engineered wood siding is easier to install than real wood siding at a lower price point. Engineered siding is lighter in weight and has designed features that make the overall installation easier.
Fiber Cement Siding:
Fiber Cement Siding has been around for nearly a century. Fiber cement siding is comprised of mostly cement, cellulose, wood fibers, and sand. Fiber cement has high and long-lasting durability and is available in most siding patterns. This siding is resistant to warping and accepts most paint applications for customization. When it comes to the long-term functionality of this product, when installed properly, it has an expected lifetime rating of 25-30 years.
