How to Compare Siding Materials

Siding has several tasks to perform around your home. It always needs to provide an aesthetic quality—you have to love the way it looks. At the same time, you also want to be sure your siding is energy efficient and even affordable for your budget. Choosing a name brand or going with just any product isn’t usually desirable. It’s best to compare siding materials carefully to find the one best suited to meeting all of your needs.

What to Think About When Choosing Siding

Work with experienced siding contractors who can help to answer all of your questions. Take a look at a few types of products we offer at C&T Siding and what they may offer to you:

●        Seamless Siding

Having a cohesive look is important to many people. This type of siding never fades, which means the unique color and look will last for years. That’s because it has a high-end paint coating that helps emit the sun’s rays. This can also help keep your cooling costs more in line with your budget. Seamless siding is a bit higher priced, but quality products pay for themselves with their long lifespans.

●        Fiber Cement

This type of siding is perhaps one of the most common. It’s widely known because of the James Hardie brand name. One of the nice benefits is that it looks like real wood but has none of the maintenance that typically comes with maintaining wood siding. It’s a good option for energy efficiency, as well. And, there’s a large range of options to choose from here, which means the color, texture, and even the material type can vary to fit your goals.

●        LP SmartSide

Yet another option, LP siding has a few key benefits. Products such as LP SmartSide trim and siding tend to be long lasting and beautiful. It’s designed using engineered wood, which makes it perhaps one of the best options for those who want a traditional look. It is also designed to handle even the toughest winters in the area.

Which One Is Right for Your Needs?

You do not have to make the decision on your own. When you meet with one of our siding contractors, you can see, touch, and talk about each of these and other products available.
