Factors To Consider When Choosing Your House Siding

There are many types of siding out there, but the low price, easy maintenance, and versatility of vinyl siding help it be the most widely used siding option. Meanwhile, people who do not like the plastic-like appearance opt for wood siding.  Frequently used for bungalow, Cape Cod, as well as cottage exteriors, wood siding provides a rich appearance and is long-lasting if maintained properly. If you’re drawn to this particular appearance, keep in your mind that periodic maintenance is required by it (painting and chalking or staining to avoid weather damage), and it is prone to insect and rodent attacks. Depending on upkeep, your wood siding is able to keep going from ten to sometimes a hundred years.

Wood siding is available in clapboard (also referred to as bevel or lap siding) along with shakes and shingles. Clapboard siding applies planks of wood fitted horizontally with an upper portion, which overlaps the lower portion. Redwood and Western red cedar, woods noted for being durable and attractive, are regarded as the very best house siding options. They may be cut into various styles to add visual interest to the outside of your house. Several producers also supply shingles treated with fire retardant chemical substances, often a necessity in high-risk locations. Make sure you check into the regional rules in your area. Wood siding generally costs around five dollars to ten dollars per square foot fitted, which does not count extra price for painting or perhaps staining.

Next, we have bricks. Manufactured from fired clay, genuine brick is packaged in different textures and sizes. Brick is often used on Colonial, English cottage exteriors, and Tudor, giving a gorgeous appearance that’s been utilized for countless years and has now stood the test of time. Since water can penetrate brick veneers, a membrane set up between the brick veneer and home can guard the framework. Under normal conditions & when fitted correctly, brick siding is able to keep going the lifetime of your home. Installing brick is labor-intensive, therefore, the price is on the bigger end as compared to other siding options.

Providing the appearance of masonry, wood, or stucco at a reduced cost, fiber cement siding has turned into a favorite siding option for a lot of homeowners. Fiber-cement siding is termite-resistant, non-flammable, and low-maintenance.

The typical price is six dollars to twelve dollars per square feet installed (expense higher with trim), and the siding can last 25 – 50 years, based on the manufacturer. Traditional stucco is produced from building sand, water, lime, and Portland cement. While stucco could be put on to homes with brick and stone surfaces, the traditional look is often used on Mediterranean, ranch, and Spanish mission exteriors. Annual cleaning with a hose and assessment of the siding ensures it is going to last the lifetime of the building.

Materials For Your House Siding

Not many home upgrades or perhaps repairs are able to enhance the performance, curb attractiveness, and the worth of your house like brand new siding. Various siding materials came and survived the years, though a couple of requirements have remained, together with the unexpected newcomer. Below is a glimpse at maintenance considerations, pricing, and the features of these famous siding and roof materials, in addition to the timeless options of metal and wood.

On top of its aesthetics and durability, structures with brick masonry are much better at cooling down during weather that is hot than framed & sided houses. Although brick siding is going to last the lifetime of the structure with little upkeep, masonry ultimately does deteriorate, typically at the mortar joints. Today’s vinyl house siding is insect- and weather-proof, fade-resistant, and practically indestructible under ordinary circumstances. Vinyl siding does require a little maintenance, nonetheless, because grime and mold are able to accumulate.

Before settling for a wood species and quality, question your building contractor concerning rot resistance, splitting, cupping, and checking. While you are able to pick from a selection of wood siding choices—pine, cedar, fir, spruce, redwood—only a few could be suited to your climate or region. Proper maintenance consists of power washing, sealing, and staining whenever the heat of the sun fades the surface or dampness causes mildew or mold.

Both easier and cheaper to put in, engineered wood is an excellent eco-friendly option to high maintenance natural wood. That’s why it is essential not just to select the proper siding replacement for your house, but also to ensure you can keep up to date with any maintenance it might require. To ascertain the proper exterior siding option, you will have to think about the cost (including installation and materials), durability, aesthetics, and energy efficiency.

Pros And Cons Of House Siding Materials

Brick Siding – It is a traditional look found in many suburbs, particularly new construction, which makes it the go-to option when updating or buying a home. It can able to stand up to intense weather and temperatures. Thus, the longevity of brick is a big advantage when deciding on exterior siding for your house. Aesthetically, it is also a great option in case you are going for a classic look. On the other hand, one disadvantage is it is a far more expensive alternative than other siding choices. You are able to reduce costs by making use of a substitute referred to as the brick veneer, which utilizes thin levels of brick.

Engineered Wood – Unlike wood-imitating vinyl or fiber-cement, engineered wood is composed of mainly wood, with a couple of added components to develop a far more natural-looking final product, which means it is a far more convincing wood alternative. Additionally, it has a very long warranty. In case you’re interested, a lot engineered wood alternatives are available. When you are searching for a substitute to wood, engineered wood, while convincing for feel and look, can’t be repainted or restained, meaning any finish you installed originally is exactly what you will have for life.

Glass – Used in conjunction with another siding material, glass is excellent for letting in ample natural light, and if installed properly, it should still get rid of most sun rays. Nevertheless, they are also a pricey choice for siding.

Metal Siding – Initially used in industrial buildings and factories, metal outside siding is turning into a far more popular option for homes due to its durability and strength. Together with being weather resistant, it is also resistant to fire, insect damage, and rot. Furthermore, while metals like copper usually change their look after being subjected to the components, other metals maintain their surface over the years. Metal is economical with regards to keeping a home cool, as sunlight is reflected by it, it doesn’t keep some warmth and additionally will minimize heating bills because the underside on the top will reflect heat back into the house instead of allowing it to escape. On the downside, it is an expensive option for exterior siding, having to shell out around $9,000 and more. When you choose the appearance and feel of steel siding, many homeowners choose lightweight aluminum that is more affordable in material & labor costs.

Stone Siding – Both organic and fabricated stone siding create an upscale, beautiful look to a house. Unlike brick, it is a far more natural choice for a house and can make a distinctive exterior design. Stone is a sturdy material that is resistant to rain, and with other components, little maintenance is required by it, and it is long-lasting. Because a specialist is going to need to install the stones correctly, both the cost and the material of labor are higher than brick. Expect to shell out more than $100,000.

Stucco Siding – Derived from standard Spanish architectural components, stucco is made from cement, lime, sand, water, and oftentimes epoxy. Stucco is usually utilized in pueblo-style homes, usually on the West Coast. Due to the substances utilized to generate stucco, it hardly ever involves painting or even chipping maintenance, which makes it the perfect option for weather wear. In comparison to other siding options, it is relatively cheap, coming in at around $4,500.  While it is a more affordable material, installation generally takes an expert, making labor much more pricey compared to other exterior sidings.

Vinyl Siding – Vinyl is a hard plastic material that joined the exterior siding industry in the late 1950s, substituting for the once-popular aluminum siding. Additionally, it differs in thickness—usually the thicker the substance, the higher the price, while still being easy and lightweight to set up. There is actually a more recent choice, which enables you to put in insulated vinyl siding, but the cost is higher compared to conventional vinyl siding. Unfortunately, because the vinyl siding cost is very cheap, the quality is a little lower compared to some other exterior siding options. It may be harmed in severe weather conditions, just like wind and high temperatures, which can compromise the siding by developing cracks. Not to mention, in case you do not choose the insulated vinyl siding, it is not so energy efficient—a thing to remember when making your choice.
