There are several types of stunning siding materials available—vinyl, fiber cement, wooden shakes, etc. Use our guide below to help you make an informed decision on what will work best for you.


Everyone wants a stunning home and siding is the quickest way to boost the aesthetic look of your home as it nearly accounts for about half of the overall exterior surface—the other being the roof, windows, and doors.


It's an important to take durability into account when doing a siding replacement as you wouldn't want to buy something expensive that wears down quickly.

Water Resistance

Some materials will be naturally water resistant. However, you'd want to use professional installers or pay extra attention to detail when doing yourself. This will help prevent water from seeping in which will decay and rot the structure of the house resulting in a more expensive siding replacement down the line.

Energy Efficiency

Siding materials come with an R-value. The R-value measures the energy efficiency of the material; the higher the R-value the more heat the siding retains. This will help you lower your lower your energy bills and save you money in the long-run.


For many, the budget is often the number 1 variable in many home improvements. Choose a siding that fits your needs best.
