Vinyl Siding is a cost- effective way to increase curb appeal and energy efficiency. For many people, price isn’t the issue at all; the real seduction of vinyl siding is reduced maintenance. Ongoing changes in the product’s chemistry and installation techniques have improved its performance and furthered its acceptance by builders and homeowners. Vinyl has captured 32 percent of the U.S. siding market for new homes, with no end in sight to its growing popularity. The reason, in part, is because it’s often (but not always) cheaper than red cedar or redwood and takes less time to install.

One of the advantages of metal cladding is its low maintenance. Compared with some other siding choices, metal requires very little maintenance from a homeowner once it is properly installed. This is especially true for those areas of the country subject to severe winters. Snow, sleet, frost, rain, wind and even heat have very little effect upon metal. Metal also does not absorb moisture or promote the growth of mold or fungus, both of which can destroy a home’s framing and can pose health hazards to the occupants. The thicker the metal, the better it will withstand day to day abuse, as well as any extreme events. Metal is also extremely unfriendly toward insects. Insect damage can be a problem with many home sidings, and the regular spraying which some sidings require in order to repel insects can be costly over time. All insect problems are eliminated with metal.
Cedar siding can stand out as rustic and beautiful, it gives any home a natural rich warmth that only cedar can provide. There are a variety of options for finishes and colors, it’s a classic look that goes with all types of homes. Cedar is naturally water – resistant, it is also resistant to decay and insects. It does gradually age over the years but with the proper maintenance can last for years.
