Particularly at this time of year, Minnesotans are keenly aware of our state’s changing temperatures. It seems like just yesterday we were sitting by the lake, enjoying the sunshine – but soon we’ll be watching snow float down and surround our homes. So when it’s time to update your home exterior, what kind of siding is a good choice in Minnesota? The answer is, several kinds of siding can provide real benefits. Here are four kinds of siding that can help your home stay beautiful and well-protected in the Minnesota winter – and summer.

• Vinyl siding. ProVia offers CedarMAX insulated vinyl siding. CedarMAX can help your home stay warmer and cozier in December. Energy-efficient CedarMAX can help keep your energy bills more manageable, too.
• Fiber cement siding. James Hardie offers different lines for two different areas of the country, to help customers deal with their particular climate. James Hardie siding can handle moisture, and it’s also made to face harsh temperatures.
• Engineered wood siding. LP SmartSide is made to stand up against powerful winds. It’s also designed to keep out the rain. It can proudly face Minnesota’s July sunshine and January chill.
• Steel siding. If you’re looking for siding that can last a long time and not need much maintenance, steel siding is definitely an option to consider. Rollex and EDCO are two quality brands to seek.
