Is your home’s siding showing signs of wear and tear? Are cracks and buckling becoming all too familiar? It might be time to consider a siding replacement. As the shield against the elements, it plays a critical role in safeguarding your home and family from structural damage, moisture intrusion, and mold growth.

Wood Siding: Known for its timeless appeal, wood offers a warm and natural aesthetic. Available in various styles such as board and batten, shakes, shingles, and clapboards, wood siding provides versatility in design. However, it requires regular maintenance to prevent rot and insect infestation. Finishing with paint or solid stain can enhance durability and weather resistance, but must be done at least every 3 years.

Engineered Wood: Engineered wood products offer the look of real wood with enhanced durability. Manufactured by bonding wood fibers with a resin composite and treated for moisture and mold resistance, engineered wood is a popular choice for homeowners seeking low-maintenance solutions. However, engineered wood has disadvantages such as color fading due to UV ray exposure, non-eco-friendly binding agents, and cracking in extreme weather conditions.

Vinyl Siding: Vinyl is an affordable and easy-to-install option available in a wide range of colors and textures. While it requires minimal maintenance, routine cleaning is recommended to preserve its appearance and longevity. Vinyl contracts and expands depending on different weather conditions which makes it susceptible to warps and buckles, .

Fiber Cement: Composed of cement and cellulose fibers, fiber cement offers exceptional durability and resistance to moisture, rot, pests, and fire. Although the installation may require specialized tools and expertise, fiber cement boasts longevity and minimal maintenance requirements. It is also moisture, rot, pest, and weather resistant. Many fiber cement siding options come with exceptional warranties. D&G Roofing and Restoration recommends James Hardie siding options.
