Siding Choices for Your Exterior WallsApr 17, 2015
The siding is an extremely important part of a home’s exterior. As with the roof, it is important to know what choices you have when it comes to this product. Let’s look at some types of exterior siding for your house. At Sundance Custom Homes, we are well aware of the benefits of choosing the right type of siding for your home. We understand the need to use a product that is best suited to an area based on weather conditions and the design of the house.
For many homeowners, this is one of the more affordable options. The cost plus its versatility makes fiber-cement a popular choice as a siding material. A good construction contractor knows how to use this material to give the look of stucco, wood and even masonry. Two great benefits of this siding material are that it is fire resistance as well as being termite resistant. Needing very little maintenance, your home will keep on looking good for years. The only drawback to using fiber-cement is that it does absorb moisture if it is not installed properly. Some suppliers provide high quality fiber-cement siding that can last for up to 50 years.
Stucco is not the easiest siding to use, but when the job is done well, this type of material will last for the life of the house. This type is ideal for ranch houses and Mediterranean and Spanish style buildings. The experienced plasterer can also do amazing stucco siding work on modern style homes. It works well on large buildings that have a basic design. The cost is within the mid-range for this kind of material.
For the homeowner who wants a long lasting exterior finish that requires very little maintenance, brick siding is the right choice. It can last for the life of the house with only a periodic need for repairs. Being labor intensive, the cost for installation is on the high end compared to other types. Installation costs are normally calculated by the square footage. Brick gives the homeowner a variety of design and color options which makes it a popular choice.
