THE IMPORTANCE OF
The factors that make exterior siding so crucial are the same ones that undermine its long-term performance. In other words, when exposed to elements such as hot sun, bitter cold, strong wind, and heavy rain, siding eventually succumbs to the very threats it's meant to repel.
When siding fails, and your homes interior is left unprotected, the likelihood for deteriorated infrastructure grows each day. Much like insulation, siding must deter insects, dirt and moisture from entering the area between the exterior and interior walls of your home. If damaged siding produces moisture buildup, it may cause mold and mildew, while also endangering the structural integrity of your home by bowing or warping the foundation.
When in optimal condition, siding surpasses its intended purpose of weather protection—offering eye-catching curb appeal, improved energy efficiency, higher home resale value, and considerably lower maintenance requirements.

Although siding is known for its durability, nothing lasts forever. To determine whether new siding is required or not, you must first evaluate the condition of your current siding. If you suspect damage to your home but are unsure of what to look for, explore the following signs that suggest new siding is in order.
Different types of siding, such as vinyl, aluminum, or wood panels, provide different degrees of protection. Some materials are more durable than others, while some may offer better aesthetic value. In order to determine the right exterior siding option, you’ll need to consider the material’s durability, energy efficiency and aesthetics. Here are some popular siding materials to choose from:
Unlike fiber-cement or wood-imitating vinyl, engineered wood is comprised of mostly wood, with a few added materials to create a more natural-looking final product, meaning, it’s a more convincing wood alternative. Engineered wood is manufactured to be more cost effective than traditional wood siding while still imitating the traditional look.
Fiber-cement siding, often compared to vinyl siding (because it’s also man-made with the purpose of mimicking another material), is a great option for homeowners who want the look of wood siding. We’re proud to offer America’s #1 brand of siding, James Hardie, who offers an array of fiber cement siding options with beautiful designs and superior performance. Additionally, James Hardie products are engineered for climate, meaning they offer specific performance attributes relative to your climate.
Vinyl is a tough plastic material that entered the exterior siding market in the late 1950s replacing the once-popular aluminum siding. Its durability and low-maintenance profile made it a fast fan-favorite for homeowners who wanted to save money on exterior siding.
The most common profiles for vinyl include horizontal, vertical and shingle.
Like vinyl siding, wood siding is versatile and durable. The surface of the wood can be painted or stained in any desired color, requiring maintenance every two – five years depending on the type of finish.
The most common profiles for wood include board and batten, shingles or shakes, clapboards, drop siding, vertical boards, wooden sheet siding and log.
