Additional Details on the types of siding:
Vinyl Siding Materials
Vinyl siding is the number #1 most used siding in the nation today. Many people prefer vinyl siding materials over other siding materials because it can be relatively inexpensive, doesn’t require painting, is very low maintenance and typically comes with a 50 year warranty or more. Vinyl siding comes in horizontal (lap), vertical, shingle/shake siding & soffits material types. Many other options are available.
Fiber Cement Siding Materials
Fiber Cement siding materials are made from compacted layers of fiber and cement. The product is very heavy and special care must be exercised when installing the product due to health concerns with silica dust from cutting the product. But never the less, this product is very popular. It is flame retardant due to it being made from concrete. Some fiber cement products are pre-painted but most are just pre-primed and require painting. Fiber cement siding materials comes in (lap), vertical T-111, shingle/shake siding & soffits material types.
Cedar Siding Materials (similar: Redwood)
Cedar siding materials are made from cedar trees and are typically more cost prohibited than vinyl siding. Redwood is very similar to cedar but looks a little different. Cedar siding is usually pre-stained or pre-primed at the supplier but not always. Cedar shake siding materials are often left ‘raw’ and naturally weather and turn a ‘silver’ color, you typically only see this look at the beach since salt is hard on painted surfaces.
Composite Siding Materials (aka: Wood)
Composite siding materials include manufactured wood products. Typically this category is made from wood chips, wood discs, wood wafers or sawdust.
Metal Siding Materials
Metal siding materials include Corrugated Aluminum, Steel & Aluminum lap siding. Steel and aluminum lap siding are not very common anymore though used commercially.
Veneer Siding Materials (aka: Stone)
A veneer is a wall made up stone or bricks and can last for a very long time. Providing a solid wall of protection from temperature and moisture, it’s, however, more expensive than many of the other sidings. Veneer rock siding is often used only on the front of a building and even more often as only an accent.
