Home improvement and remodeling season is officially here, and many decisions need to be made. One area of the house homeowners often focus on during the good weather is the exterior, and siding replacement is often at the top of the list.

The Lowdown on Siding

Mazzi Contractors is a Main Line home improvement expert with extensive experience working with an array of siding materials. Homeowners are often unsure which siding is best for their home. Some aspects to consider are:

  • Energy efficiency: In today’s world, saving on energy costs is a huge bonus. To guarantee you get the best, make sure to look for a siding material that maximizes efficiency over time.
  • Weather resistance: Some siding materials are better suited for particular climates, and determining which siding will hold up to the Pennsylvania seasons can save money and help you avoid disappointment.
  • Durability and Care: How long do you plan to be in your home? Most people want a siding product that will outlast their time in a home and that will remain effective and attractive without too much care. Varying levels of care will be required for each option.
  • Aesthetics: For many, the way siding looks is the priority. You have to see your house every day, so choose an option that inspires pride of ownership.

Siding Materials

Cement Siding – Cement siding can be made to look like wood, stone or stucco in various colors. Some features about cement that homeowners appreciate are its termite-resistance, inflammability and ease of maintenance. Depending on the manufacturer, cement siding is warrantied for 25 to 50 years.

Vinyl Siding – One of the most affordable options, vinyl siding comes in hundreds of colors and many styles. Due to competition and new technology, vinyl siding no longer necessarily has a “plastic” look. Vinyl is easy to maintain and can be combined with other siding types, like stone veneer, as accents.

Wood Siding – Although costlier and a bit more work, wood siding has an unmatched aesthetic. The beauty and texture of wood adds an eye-catching appeal to any house. Some wood choices are extremely durable, and can last for generations when proper maintenance is performed. One consideration is home location, as wood is susceptible to termite or other insect damage.

Stone Siding – Stone is beautiful and the natural look appeals to many homeowners. Stone is a more expensive siding choice, however, little care is required and your home will look as good in 30 years as on the first day. Stone veneer is a common option, allowing more variations in appearance and offering easier installation.
