When it comes to making sure that your home is strong and has the curb appeal to impress, you must consider your siding. There are many factors to consider before taking that step including types of siding, materials, and colors.
Pros: Affordable & Lots of Variety
Cons: Not the most durable option
Vinyl siding is a fairly popular choice for homes for a few reasons. In addition, it is also one of the most affordable types of siding, as it is an economic option. However, this does make it not as durable as some of the other siding options available. But, it does come with a wide range of colors, which is another reason people are drawn to it.
Insulated Vinyl Siding
Pros: Improved home insulation and durability, with the same variety of traditional vinyl.
Cons: Still not as durable as other siding options.
Next up, we have insulated vinyl. What makes this different from regular vinyl is that the insulation is built right into the ridge of the panel. Having the insulation set up this way helps to insulate the home better and overall helps secure the temperature of homes — which can help save you money. It also helps make it more durable, meaning you may be spending less on repairs or replacement siding.
Hardie Board Siding
Pros: Highly durable & top-notch quality control.
Cons: More expensive than vinyl
If you think siding that contains cement would be very durable, then you’d be right. Hardie Board siding is extremely strong and can handle all sorts of objects and elements thrown it’s way. They offer a 30-year warranty and you can once again get any custom color for your home.
