The different types of siding
Engineered Wood – As the most durable siding on the market, engineered wood combines the aesthetics of real wood with engineered wood strand technology for superior durability
Vinyl Siding – Is a popular choice, thanks to its affordability and little need for maintenance. It is not one of the durable siding types, however, as it offers relatively low impact resistance and can be prone to cracking, melting and buckling.
Fiber Cement – is a versatile option that fits many different building styles—though it can be difficult to maintain in climates with excessive moisture or frequent freeze/thaw cycles, conditions that can cause breaking or cracking.
Traditional Wood – Offers aesthetic charm, but it is prone to durability challenges associated with a naturally biodegradable material. It can be subject to damage from moisture and termites that leads to rotting and warping. It also requires frequent painting or staining.
Cedar Shake – While it boasts a rustic appearance similar to traditional wood, cedar shake siding is a more durable siding type that also offers natural insulating properties. It also requires much more maintenance than any other type of wood siding.
Aluminum – Aluminum siding is usually made from aluminum coil stock, which can make it a durable siding type—though one that doesn’t always stand up to weather elements. It can be susceptible to dents and dings and requires frequent painting.
