Selecting new siding can be a daunting task. You want to make sure that you get the right product because you certainly don’t want to do another siding replacement project within a few years. But with so many choices, how do you know which product is right for your home, budget and aesthetic requirements?
Moss Roofing understands the importance of this choice. That’s why we’ve broken down the many different types of siding and some pros and cons of each.
Which Siding Material is Right for You?
One of the most popular siding options on the market is vinyl siding. It’s known for being affordable and it is impervious to termites. It’s also available in a number of colors and doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. Where vinyl falls down is that it can melt during a fire and it isn’t as weather-resistant as other options.
Everyone loves the look of wood siding and it is highly insulative. It can be easily painted if you want to change the color. But wood does require a lot of maintenance and it is fire-prone. It also doesn’t last as long as other siding materials.
Oriented strand board (OSB) siding is rot- and termite-resistant, but it’s not very durable and it can’t mimic the look of traditional materials.
Fiber cement siding, on the other hand, is resistant to moisture, impact, shrinking, warping, termites and rot. You can repaint it, and the best products come with a 30-year, non-prorated warranty. It’s also non-combustible.
