When you’re ready to compare siding options for your home, Treasure Valley Exteriors is here to help. We can explain your options to find the right materials and style for your budget.If your home’s exterior is in need of a fresh look, then your first step is to compare siding options to find out what’s right for your needs. There are many types of siding to choose from, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. There are engineered wood products, green products, and real wood options all to create visually stunning choices. Treasure Valley Exteriors is here to help you find the best siding at the best price for your home.
Here are some of our most popular siding types for you to consider.
1. Vinyl Siding
Vinyl has become a very popular choice in siding. Why? It’s a durable siding option that usually lasts for decades (often with a warranty), and it eliminates the hassle of needing regular repainting. Vinyl siding comes with an opportunity to upgrade your insulation, improving your home’s weather resistance and energy efficiency. On top of that, it’s often less expensive than other choices and is offered in many appealing colors. This combination makes it popular among those who are looking to save money and want a long-term siding solution.
As with anything, there are compromises for homeowners who choose vinyl siding. One drawback of vinyl siding is the fact that it can be dented by impact, and can warp or bend under extreme weather conditions.
Some of these concerns are alleviated by choosing a quality product. New vinyl products, such as those from Mastic or Alside, can offer realistic-looking wood grain patterns, long-lasting color, and are very resilient.
2. Metal Siding
Metal siding isn’t just for warehouses and sheds. Color-coated siding can be beautiful, especially with the right finish and an added coat of texture to give it the appearance of freshly painted wood siding. Metal siding offers a degree of protection for your home that other options don’t.
Wind and rain stand little chance against this siding choice. Steel is especially rugged and is virtually unaffected by the weather, moisture, and even fire. Metal siding has the longest life of any product, and at the end of its use it can be recycled, making it an eco-friendly choice.
3. Engineered Wood Siding
Wood gives your home a natural, beautiful look. There’s a reason that every other product out there attempts to look like wood: nothing else compares to the warmth and character provided by natural wood products. Wood siding is easily repaired and repainted without having to redo the entire home. Wood siding comes with an opportunity to upgrade your insulation, improving your home’s weather resistance and energy efficiency.
While wood can be susceptible to insects or the elements, choosing quality products like Real Cedar or TruWood can mitigate the risk. They have natural defenses against threats, so you can sleep soundly.
Wood siding is practically limitless in options for design, allowing homeowners to get exactly the look they want. Do you prefer that rustic appearance? Look for shingle or shake siding to make your home one of a kind.
4. Stone Siding
Stone veneer siding is one of the most popular choices for beautiful homes in the Treasure Valley. Many people utilize stone as an accent for entry ways, columns, garages, and many other appealing applications. The application of stone siding can make a dramatic difference in your home’s appearance. Installation is straight forward, typically applying thinly cut stone to the house with mortar. There are a variety of colors and shapes in both natural stone and manufactured stone. As you might imagine, stone is pretty darn durable. It never needs painting, it’s impervious to insects, and it doesn’t burn.
Its only real weakness is not the stone itself but the gaps between the stones. If installation is left to amateurs, moisture problems can develop that can ruin your exterior walls. That’s why we’re a big fan of InsulStone. This stone veneer completely eliminates moisture issues using interlocking insulation panels. The mortar-less installation is much cleaner and faster than traditional applications of mortar and stone.
