Call us here at Sundance Custom Homes, LLC, if you would like more information or to schedule an appointment for an onsite consultation.
Vinyl Siding: We’ll begin with the most popular of siding options. Vinyl is popular for several reasons. It’s less expensive than most other siding materials. It requires very little maintenance; you only need to wash it off with mild soap once per year. Some homeowners prefer to use a pressure washer, but they can be damaging if the pressure is too high.
Wood Siding: There are several benefits to using wood siding, regardless of the additional costs involved in the initial installation. Wood provides a natural beauty that other types of siding cannot match. It is not a low maintenance siding option, as stain should be reapplied every two to three years. Wood is a sustainable material that breaks down easily in landfills, making it a very ecologically friendly option for siding.
Stucco Siding: Many people love the appeal of stucco. It requires a good amount of prep work before it may be applied. Toners may be applied to the stucco before it is applied; making it unnecessary to paint it once it has been applied and dried. It may be colored any color you desire to create a truly unique appearance.
Engineered Wood Siding: This option is available in a variety of colors and looks like real wood siding. It is created using real wood fibers and heavy duty plastic compounds to bind the fibers together. They’re then pressed and made to mimic rough-sawn clapboard, shingles, or beaded lap. Engineered wood siding is roughly the same price as vinyl siding.
Synthetic Stone: This siding option is created using a mixture of sand, cement, and aggregate. It is poured into molds and colored to mimic the look of real, stacked river rock. It is light weight and easy to install. It is one of the more expensive siding options.
