Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding represents a popular choice for property owners. It is the most affordable, compared to other kinds of house siding. Vinyl siding is easy to install because it comes in long, narrow slats that fit easily together. Vinyl also comes in a wide range of colors. Homeowners need to wash vinyl siding occasionally after dirt and grime build up on the panels.

Fiber Cement

Fiber cement house siding is extremely durable, has low maintenance, and is made of sturdy materials. It’s also fire- and bug-resistant. Because fiber cement is heavier than vinyl siding, it requires more labor to install. However, the results are beautiful and resilient, ensuring that you get colorful and durable house siding that lasts for 30 years or more.

Brick and Synthetic Stone

Brick and synthetic stone house siding combine the best of masonry’s sturdiness and easy installation of slats of material. Brick is heavy and requires reinforcement against the building’s structure. Synthetic stone looks like real stone, but it’s much cheaper than real stone masonry. Both brick and synthetic stone house siding are more expensive compared to vinyl siding, fiber cement, and wood. However, the results last for many decades.
