Most Affordable Siding
If you are looking for a budget-friendly siding that won’t sacrifice style and quality, vinyl siding is a great choice. Vinyl siding is quicker to install than metal siding and it offers a larger selection of colors and textures at more affordable prices. Wood siding requires a more intensive installation process than vinyl siding, which can even be installed over existing materials if needed. This reduces labor costs and makes for a quick and easy installation.
Most Durable Siding
Metal and vinyl siding both provide excellent insulation and steadfast performance against wind, rain, snow, and other weather conditions, but metal siding gains a slight edge when it comes to durability. Metal siding is usually made from aluminum or steel, both of which can both last upwards of 50 years with little to no maintenance. This is due to metal siding’s increased resistance to corrosion, rotting, insects, mildew, and fire. If you are looking for the longest lasting siding for your home, ask your siding contractor about metal siding.
You can’t overlook the importance of aesthetic appeal when choosing the right siding for your home. Lots of homeowners are drawn to the massive variety of styles, colors and textures available with vinyl siding. With vinyl siding, it’s easy to find the right color to compliment the exterior of your home and you can choose between many texture and profile styles including shake, clapboard, dutch lap, shingle, board & pattern, and more. On the other hand, metal siding is a great choice for those looking for a clean and industrial look. If you want to experience the benefits of metal siding but you prefer a more natural look, you can opt for metal siding that imitates the appearance of wood.
Repairing Vs. Replacing Your Siding
Repairs aren’t always enough to restore damaged siding. If you just need to replace sections of your home’s siding, it can be tempting to find a product that closely imitates the rest of the siding on your home to save money. Don’t go that route. Mismatched siding looks bad and it can decrease the value of your home, so you should always replace all of the siding on your home when replacements are needed. Exteriors Plus will work closely with you to find a siding replacement solution that fits your budget and enhances the value of your home.
