Materials for Siding Replacement
There are several different types of siding depending on the home style and your budget. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we focused primarily on vinyl and wood siding. Here are some of the benefits, advantages, and disadvantages to different types of siding replacement materials.
Fiber cement is traditionally available in planks, but can be found and installed as shingles or flat boards for vertical applications. It comes pre-painted or pre-stained, and can be painted any color you desire. Fiber cement siding is durable, long-lasting and low-maintenance. It’s used on residential and commercial projects. As a semi-rigid material it provides substantial protection, while still maintaining some flexibility. Since it’s cement, it’s fire protection is superior to wood siding
This is probably the most common type of siding, especially on newer homes and when replacing siding. It offers great value for your budget, it’s tough, long-lasting, and easy to install. You can choose from a wide variety of styles and colors including products that even look like wood grained lap siding, shingles, and stone. The color of the siding is part of the material some dings, scuffs, and scratches don’t even show and routine cleaning with a brush and hose is all you’ll need.
Wood siding is traditional but it does need a little bit of maintenance. It comes in a variety of styles and designs and includes board and batten, shakes, shingles, and clapboard. It offers a natural appearance with timeless beauty.
Pine and Cedar
Pine and Cedar are two main wood species used for exterior siding replacement. There are several different styles of cedar such as white cedar, red cedar, yellow cedar, and pine, while although affordable, doesn’t necessarily resist rot and insects like cedar dust. Cedar is also more stable and it won’t expand or contract like pine.
Some types of wood siding can even be installed over existing siding. Installing wood shingle siding over older clapboard siding can be an option but it’s better to remove old siding prior to installing any new. Wood shingle siding requires refinishing ever 4 to 6 years depending on the type of finish you use so while it offers a unique look, it can require more maintenance.
Engineered wood siding offers many of the aesthetic benefits of regular wood siding but without some of the downsides. Being made of robust materials it is more durable and has a more consistent looking finish. Additionally, it may be more cost effective, particularly during spikes in lumber prices.
While there are many options, it can be a little overwhelming. Let Nordic Home Solutions discuss pros and cons to each of these, what fits into your budget, and what type of maintenance you want to undertake over the next 10 to 15 years. Each of these siding options has their own appeal but perhaps only one is the right option for you.
