Maintenance Free Exterior Siding

Vinyl Siding has become a very popular choice!

There are many types of siding, so choosing the right one can change the look and the way you maintain your home. Some of the most popular types of siding that we discuss here are vinyl and cement-fiber siding. Whatever siding you choose make sure you chose the right home improvement contractor as installation of siding is 50 percent of the project.

Vinyl siding has become a very popular choice when upgrading a home. And believe me, vinyl siding today’s not your grandpa’s siding. It has come a long way since the days of many seams and limited textures, styles and colors. It has become quite advanced from the formulation, to its strength, to choices of profiles and colors. Vinyl siding is the low maintenance choice. It never needs painting and can be maintained by just spraying it down with water and mild detergent once a year. Nice!

Fiber Cement Siding - If you’re looking for an option that’s low-maintenance, fiber cement siding is one of them!

Fiber cement siding refers to a relatively new type of siding material that looks like wood but doesn’t act like wood (in the sense that it doesn’t burn like wood). It doesn’t require that you strip off your existing siding. It shares some indestructible qualities with vinyl siding. Yet unlike vinyl siding, it can be painted.

One of the most desirable qualities of fiber cement board is that it is so durable. Unlike wood siding, fiber board siding doesn’t rot or require frequent repainting. It is fire-proof, insect resistant, and is able to withstand climate extremes. Impressively, some manufacturers offer warranties that last for up to 50 years, a testament to the material’s longevity. If you’re looking for an option that’s low-maintenance, fiber cement siding is one of them.  Aside from being low-maintenance, fiber cement siding is also energy efficient and contributes to insulating your home.

There are many other projects you can tackle, but only re-siding your home with fiber cement gives you one of the best returns on your investment.
