Siding is the durable material that wraps around your home and protects it from the elements. It’s also one of your home’s most defining characteristics. When choosing siding for your Aurora home, it’s important to be aware of the different options available to you. Below, we’ve discussed some of the most popular choices.
How Do I Choose the Right Siding?
When comparing siding, it’s important to consider more than just how a certain option will look. You also want to think about its durability, fire and pest resistance, cost, and whether or not it’s a good option for your home’s particular architectural style. Here are some important factors to consider:
- Price – Does it fit in your budget?
- Moisture resistance – Will water damage be a concern and cause the siding to warp, rot, or break?
- Durability – How does it hold up against impact, hail, and over the course of time?
- Fade resistance – Is it UV resistant? How often will you need to repaint?
- Style – Does this option match your home’s architectural style and your neighborhood in general?
Popular Siding Choices for Aurora Homes
Now that you have a better idea of what to look for, let’s talk more about the different siding options out there. Here’s some information about popular choices.
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding is a great option for Aurora homes. It’s super durable and moisture resistant. Its textured surface gives homes that “real wood” look without the upkeep. For brands, we recommend James Hardie.
Engineered Wood Siding
Another great alternative to cedar siding is engineered wood. Engineered wood looks just like authentic cedar, but is ten times stronger. You’ll get the same gorgeous color and texture, but won’t have to worry about rotting, warping, and other concerns. For this option, we recommend either LP SmartSide or Diamond Kote.
Insulated Vinyl Siding
Insulated vinyl siding is a good compromise between price and durability. It’s much hardier than standard vinyl, but still relatively affordable. Alside produces some excellent insulated vinyl siding.
