When you are trying to choose the type of siding for your home, it can get quite overwhelming. Siding is the defining characteristic of a home and any change should be a well thought out process. Below are the most common siding choices today.


Wood siding is one of the most popular types of siding due to its classic and high-quality look with the low price. Types include clapboard, plywood, hardboard/composition, rectangular plank, cedar and wood plank. Wood siding however is not a great choice in areas that experience harsh weather conditions or have wood-eating pests like termites. While it looks beautiful, it is not as durable of a siding as some of the other choices.


There are several types of materials that are available with composite siding including: fiber cement, aluminum and asphalt. It is often sold in shingles or slats like wood and installed in a very similar way. Because it can be made into different shapes, there are endless possibilities with siding accessories.
