Siding is a material that’s installed over the top of the exterior walls of a house or building, also known as cladding. This can be done for both decorative and protective reasons, and a variety of materials can be used as siding, including wood vinyl, metals, asphalt, or composite materials.
High-quality siding protects the outside of a house from the weather, helping to prevent damage caused by strong winds and heavy rain or hail, as well as sun damage. This extra layer can also act as an insulator, helping to better control the temperature inside the home and, therefore, reducing the home’s reliance on HVAC to heat and cool the inside of the house.
Siding is available in lots of different styles, materials, and colors as well. When chosen well, siding can improve the attractiveness of a home and help to boost its curb appeal, which can make it more attractive to buyers when you decide to sell your house. Even if you’re not planning on selling, attractive siding can make your home more aesthetically pleasing to you and your family.
The style, color, and material of your siding should all be considered when choosing and installing new siding. Even a fresh coat of paint on existing siding can help to spruce it up and give your home a new lease on life. Think about the colors and style of your roof, doors, and trim to help you choose a color that complements these other elements well.
Siding is very versatile when it comes to styles and designs. You can have either vertical or horizontal style boards, or other shapes such as those seen in shingles or scallops siding. You can create a glossy, modern look with smoothly finished siding or a more rustic look log siding or boards that have a work or weathered look. Even when painting and finishing over your siding, you can decide whether you want a wood grain coming through or a sleeker look from materials like vinyl.
