James Hardie siding, also known as Hardie board, has become an increasingly popular siding choice. It is cement board siding. It is an extremely long-lasting siding option, with a lifespan of decades. Hardie board siding options are extensive, practically unlimited. And these colors do not tend to fade. It is durable and resistant to rot, insects, storms, and fire, among other things. Although Hardie siding can be pricier than other siding types, its lifespan is longer thereby making it worth the investment. This siding material has been being perfected since its creation in the 1980’s, becoming even stronger and more durable throughout the years.

When you walk down any street, you are likely to see mostly vinyl siding. Why? It is a highly popular, highly affordable siding type. But what makes it so great? One of the biggest benefits of vinyl siding is how low maintenance it is. When vinyl first appeared in the 1950s, it was not a particularly durable choice, but today a lot of advancements have been made, resulting in much more flexible and durable materials. At Lakeland Exteriors we provide top-class vinyl siding installation, repair and replacement services.
Though not as popular as vinyl siding or Hardie board, aluminum siding is still a popular, and traditional, type of siding. It is durable and can last up to 40 years with proper care and maintenance. Painting aluminum is easy, making touchups possible without too much hassle. It comes in a wide variety of colors. For the sustainably minded, aluminum siding is recyclable. If you ever need to replace all or part of your home’s siding, the materials can be recycled rather than placed in a landfill. It is also highly resistant to fire and water. Aluminum siding can come in several different thicknesses for greater durability. It is a little more prone to denting than vinyl, but unlike vinyl, aluminum will never crack.
When it comes to charm and class, cedar siding is unbeatable. Cedar siding’s warm, natural appearance provides homes with a homey feel. It is an excellent insulator, keeping heat inside in the winter and cool air inside in the summer. It is extremely durable, especially compared to other types of wood siding. Cedar is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, meaning that cedar left untreated will still hold up. Another benefit of going with a natural building material is that it has natural safeguards against moisture, decay, UV rays, and insect damage. You can stain the cedar for a specific look, which requires a bit more maintenance, or leave it unstained. Unstained cedar will change color a bit over time, but it will always maintain a natural, wood look.
You may have heard shake siding referred to as “shingle siding.” This is because a shake is essentially a specialized type of shingle. Shingles are uniform shapes cut from wood (or created from another material) while wood shakes are split from logs. However, shakes are also available in vinyl. Siding installation is a bit more complicated with this type of siding, but a professional will be adept at this installation type. A benefit of shake siding is its unique look. It will differ from the everyday siding panels you see on most homes. It requires a bit of upkeep, such as replacing caulking or paint every ten years or so, but beyond that, it remains durable and can last a long time.
