What to Consider When Siding

There are so many products to use for siding your home.  When making your decision think about your surrounding environment.

You should use at least a mid-grade vinyl if you are not looking to upgrade.  If you use a lower end vinyl you will see warping and buckling when hot weather beats down on the siding.  The mid-grade is a thicker vinyl and if nailed properly so it slides with the expansion and contraction of weather there will be no buckling.

If you live in a very wooded area with lots of birds, particularly wood peckers, consider not using a wood product.  Wood peckers do terrible damage.  If you want a lasting product think about fiber cement products.  Certainteed Weather Board and James Hardie Board offer many styles, textures and colors.

Vinyl isn’t what it use to be.  There are so many styles to appeal to every home owner with the need to think out of the box.

Steel siding is another option.  If you have a contemporary style this is another direction to go.  Steel comes in many colors and designs.

When siding your home, this is also a great opportunity to consider rigid insulation.  The R-value is dependent on the thickness.  Your contractor will help you determine what is right for your home.
