As the most inexpensive siding option, vinyl can protect your home from UV rays, water, and insect damage. This material is durable against denting and can lower your energy bill with its outstanding UV resistance. Vinyl requires low maintenance and never needs repainting, but instead only rinsing a few times per year. However, vinyl siding is prone to cracking from brittleness caused by temperature fluctuation. It’s also susceptible to fading and cannot be painted, so its color will be its color until you replace it.

Wood Shakes

This type of siding is beautiful and extremely resistant to UV rays and denting. This siding option can last years without fading or losing resilience and can be painted to suit. However, wood shake siding options are more susceptible to insects and problems like mold and mildew.

Aluminum Siding

Aluminum siding options are known for being resistant to UV rays as well as mold, mildew, insects, and weather. They are strong and long-lasting and need little maintenance. However, these systems are prone to rust and can be dented easier than wood or vinyl. Aluminum options can also be painted to suit your needs and are available in reinforced varieties for extra protection.
