Siding has virtually replaced exterior wall paint as the standard exterior wall covering. It’s simply the cost-efficient and superior choice when it comes to protecting your home and improving the look of your frontage. But not all siding is made the same, and the material actually affects its performance and looks. BEE Window® discusses more.
The “classic” siding material has always been wood and cedar shakes, but this material is often no longer a viable choice for many homes. While there’s nothing quite like a wooden exterior wall covering, cedar siding is very weak against heat and moisture. So if you experience a lot of rain and dry spells, this isn’t the right choice for your home.
We recommend you get our vinyl siding instead. These can replicate the look and feel of wooden siding, but it doesn’t have its weaknesses. In fact, vinyl actually boasts one of the highest water and heat resistance out of all the siding materials available. It’s also guaranteed to make your home more energy-efficient.
Easy to Maintain Siding
Vinyl is one of the easiest to maintain siding options available since it’s high resistance to moisture and heat means that it doesn’t warp or crack. It’s also virtually resistant to rotting by virtue of the material used. But there is one other siding material that has no peers when it comes to durability – fiber cement.
This material is the most durable out of all the options and is often virtually maintenance-free. It also has the longest life span, with some reported to last decades! Our fiber cement composite siding is made of a wood and cement mixture which means it looks visually appealing and has plenty of color options, too.
