Siding’s main purpose is to protect your home from rain, snow, wind, and other weather elements. Moreover, siding takes up a majority of the homes outside surface, the attractiveness is an added appeal to any resident. Below we have listed different siding materials.
Brick is the higher-priced option, due to the cost of materials and labor for the installation. A lot of people prefer to imitate the handmade look of homes. Therefore, they will spend a lot of money. Cheaper options include stucco or vinyl.
Wood is the next big option after bricks. It may also cost up to 25% more than vinyl or fiber-cement siding. Lumber products are volatile not only in their price fluctuations but also the supply.
Natural stone is costly for a different reason — because of it’s heavier weight. This makes the installation more difficult, consequently raising the labor costs as well.
Achieve the look you want by using synthetic substitutes. If you want wood siding, consider engineered wood.
Engineered wood takes wood chips, breaks them down into the size of the fiber, adds resins and wax, and, with heat and pressure, bonds them back into a homogeneous panel. That yields a very stable product that can provide an excellent finish and a lot of versatility when it comes to siding the house.
An alternative for stone is “cultured stone”. This synthetic alternative looks exactly like stone, without the higher price tag.
Cultured stone is actually a manufactured stone veneer product that replicates natural stone in size, shape and texture. It’s a lightweight product, Therefore, it has installation advantages. Unlike quarried stone, which may be limited to a geographical area where it’s available, this product can be available anywhere in the country.
