There are numerous types of siding available for today’s homes. Vinyl siding is the most economical choice and has come a long way in profiles, thicknesses, and colours. Many dark colours are now available, as well as insulated vinyl sidings. Blended wood grained sidings give a nice cottage look. Vertical profiles, like board and batten, are available giving vinyl sidings the appearance of true wood.
Composite, fiber cement or engineered wood sidings are a nice way to get a genuine wood look, without the maintenance of real wood. However real wood siding, with it’s rich texture, continues to be a popular choice. Usually made from pine which comes in many horizontal and vertical profiles, including board and batten. It can be stained or painted and comes in a variety of colours.
For a modern look, steel siding is high strength and low maintenance with the look of real wood. A rust resistant paint coating provides long term durability for a beautiful finish for many years.
