House Siding: Which Kind is Best?

November 17, 2021


In the process of remodeling or building your home, you might consider new house siding to increase your home’s protection and curb appeal. However, there are many types of siding out there, and it can be confusing which one to pick. You might be unsure which one will protect better or which kind looks better with the style of your house. But there’s no need to worry. Bailey’s Roofing and Construction in Sulphur, Oklahoma, has put together a short guide for you to use to choose which kind of siding is best for your house. 

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding is a widespread choice in the industry for many reasons. It’s priced reasonably cheap, and it comes in various colors. The housing community is also very familiar with vinyl siding since it’s been around for so long, so that makes it a safe choice. However, the price and material of vinyl siding make it more susceptible to damage from hail, debris, baseballs, and anything else. 

LP SmartSide

LP SmartSide is a type of siding that is engineered hardwood made to last. It’s very durable, so manufacturers commonly offer 50-year warranties for the materials. This makes it worth the extra expense of this material because it lasts a long time, longer than you may be planning to stay in your home. That’s a good thing, though, because LP SmartSide will bring up the value of your home if you choose to sell. 

Hardie Board Siding

Hardie board siding contains cement which makes it highly durable. However, the downside to this type of siding is that it doesn’t have the same length warranty as LP SmartSide, and it is more expensive than vinyl siding.

Everlast Composite Siding

This type of siding is one of the most durable on the market, but it comes at a price. However, if you’re looking for something that will last while you live in the house, everlast composite might be the right option for you. One con is that it doesn’t have as many color options like vinyl, but a pro is that the warranty lasts the “length of ownership.”

Natural Wood Siding

Natural wood siding is an eco-friendly option for siding that’s easy to repair. It’s also easy to change the paint or stain color, seeing as it’s wood and would need a little TLC to do so. The downside to natural wood is it’s expensive and more challenging to maintain than most siding options.
