The exterior of your home has a big job. Not only does it have to protect you and your family from the onslaughts of nature, it must continue to look inviting no matter what Mother Nature throws your way. If you’re in the market for improving the facade of your home, and you’re unsure which type of siding to choose, this comparison will help.
Before we jump into the different types of siding, it’s important to note that any exterior siding project should also include some consideration of exterior trim–the casing treatment used around window and door openings. If the existing siding on your house has deteriorated, it’s likely that the exterior trim could also use replacement. You’ll want any new trim treatment to be compatible in appearance and function with the exterior siding you install.
