Types of Siding

The most common type of siding chosen for homes these days is that of vinyl siding. This material can come in just about any color and is one of the most durable types available. Vinyl siding is remarkably strong. Unlike metal or aluminum, it won’t conduct electricity or dent. It won't wear down in the humidity. It’s also one of the cheapest materials around. Installation is quick and easy, which also helps to reduce the overall price of the product. It can cause moisture and decay problems when improperly applied over wood. It's durable, but not impenetrable. If there are high winds, it'll come off. Entire panels will need to be replaced. It can leak. Luckily, vinyl siding is extremely easy to care for and maintain; simply power wash or hose off as needed to keep it looking like new.

Wooden siding is also very durable and many homeowners enjoy its more rustic look. An advantage of wood is the choices when it comes to the exterior appearance. It's easy to create a great-looking exterior for your home. However, one of the drawbacks is the fact that wooden siding can rot and be damaged quite easily. Therefore, it requires a lot more maintenance over time and can be quite expensive as a result.

Aluminum siding tends to be the cheapest option, but many homeowners agree that it is also the least attractive and is not very durable. Those who go with aluminum siding often find that they spend a great deal of money simply repairing and replacing it over time. However, aluminum siding is weather and corrosion resistant. It doesn’t rot, rust or otherwise break after usual weather patterns. It can be repainted and mimic wood siding. It does dent easily.

Average Costs to Install Siding

The cost to install siding at your home can vary greatly depending on the type of siding being installed in addition to the amount of it that needs to be installed. In general, however, the installation of siding at a home costs between $9,000 and $10,000. 

Any homeowners considering the option of siding for their homes should contact professional installation companies in order to find the best deal. Furthermore, reading reviews of companies before hiring one for the job can help to ensure that the job is done right.
