As you begin to cover the frame of your home, you need to consider the following:
When you are deciding between wood, brick, and vinyl, choose the one that will best protect against water.
“Water penetration is far and away from the most disastrous effect that can happen on a house. It’s the easiest way to have a house see all sorts of problems, whether it’s structurally or in terms of mold growth — or just having it break down,” said John Broniek, manager of building programs at IBACOS.
Aluminum and vinyl siding are better than others for keeping moisture out. Wood, stucco, or stone tend to be less effective as water barriers. Avoid using these materials if you have heavy rainfall in your region.
“Another aspect of exterior building products is the aesthetic value that they give to a house. They’re often the first thing that a person sees as they drive up to a house, so it must be very presentable because it adds to the quality and the character of the house,” John said.
People differ, therefore, their siding taste will differ as well. Some people prefer cultured stone, while others prefer a more modern look. Always balance your choice of siding with your budget.
Research before purchasing the materials. Prices vary because of the water-resistance and aesthetic value.
Constructive Advice: When choosing your siding product, make sure to not only look at the showroom sample but also compare large scale versions in your neighborhood. Seeing it on a larger scale will help prevent disappointment and expensive replacements in the future.
