How to Choose New Siding
There are many variables to consider when choosing a new siding material, including performance. Before you lock in your new siding choice, make sure the brand and material you choose check all the boxes:
Water-resistant types of siding will have longer life spans.
Check the R-value rating for energy savings and understand what will be needed as far as insulation beneath the cladding.
Your siding will be in full view as you come and go, so make sure it is beautiful to you.
Make sure the siding has the versatility to meet the varied needs of your specific project. If there are aspects of your home’s exterior that will make using a particular type of siding more challenging than others, make sure you understand what the added costs or necessary adjustments will be.
