Siding might be the first thing that people see when they look at your home. It not only plays a huge role in the overall appearance of your home, but it also impacts your property value. Siding is the outer covering or cladding of a house meant to shed water and protect from the effects of weather.
There are many types of siding available, including cedar, fiber-cement, and vinyl siding. Learn more about options, including vinyl siding, below!
Siding may be formed of horizontal boards or vertical boards (known as weatherboarding in many countries), shingles, or sheet materials. In all four cases, avoiding wind and rain infiltration through the joints is a major challenge, met by overlapping, by covering or sealing the joint, or by creating an interlocking joint such as a tongue-and-groove or rabbet. Since building materials expand and contract with changing temperature and humidity, it is not practical to make rigid joints between the siding elements.
There are many types of siding, including wood, metal, cement, composite, or vinyl siding. It may be attached directly to the building structure (studs in the case of wood construction), or to an intermediate layer of horizontal planks called sheathing.
Vinyl siding is the most popular choice for remodeling or new construction. It delivers the warm, quality appearance of wood without the costly, time-consuming maintenance and repairs. Vinyl siding won’t split, peel or rot. And because its color goes clear through the panel, it never needs to be scraped, stained or painted.
