What Are the Different Types of Siding for a House?

Types of House Siding If you’re planning to have new siding installed on your home, you may be overwhelmed to discover just how many options are available. The type of siding you choose can affect your home’s curb appeal, energy efficiency, and exterior maintenance requirements, so it’s important to consider all options before making a decision. Some of the most popular types of house siding include:

Polymer Siding

Polymer house siding has become increasingly common in recent years. This type of siding offers impressive durability and will never warp, crack, bend, chip, or peel, even in regions where extreme weather is common. Plus, it requires almost no maintenance, making it ideal for those who don’t want to waste time and money on upkeep.

Vinyl Siding

One of the most commonly installed options, vinyl siding is revered for its versatility. It can be made to mimic natural materials such as stone and wood, allowing homeowners to achieve an expensive look at an affordable price. It’s also available in almost any style and can be easily stained or painted.

Wood Siding

Wood siding is a traditional type of house siding that has been used for hundreds of years. It’s prized for its natural beauty, though this does come at a cost. Because wood is an organic material, it breaks down easily and is highly susceptible to water damage, insect intrusion, and rot. This leads to expensive upkeep, which can be a hassle for homeowners.
