When you decide to purchase new home siding, you’ll have many choices to make. One of the first decisions you’ll need to make is, what siding material is right for you? Here is an overview of four of the options – and some of the brands you may see.
- Fiber cement. James Hardie fiber cement is designed to stay strong against moisture. It also helps protect against fire. The company has created fiber cement products to suit different climates – including the frozen weather Minnesotans know so well.
- Engineered wood. Engineered wood is easy for installers to deal with. Further, it holds up against impact from small objects, and it can handle strong winds and rains. LP SmartSide engineered wood siding is designed to take on difficult weather.
- Vinyl siding. Vinyl is a popular – and low-maintenance – option for home siding. ProVia offers several lines of vinyl siding, to suit different needs. HeartTech by ProVia comes in a wide range of colors that stay beautiful for years. CedarMAX insulated vinyl siding gives you further energy efficiency and resistance to impact.
- Steel siding. Steel siding is long-lasting and easy to care for. And did you know you can buy steel siding with a wood-like texture? Rollex and EDCO are two quality brands of steel siding.
