Siding is more than just visual
Siding is a protective material attached to the exterior side of a wall of a house or other building. Besides the roof, it forms the first line of defense against the elements. It protects from the sun, rain, snow, heat and cold. Siding helps create a stable, more comfortable environment on the interior of the home.
Siding consists of weather-resistant material that are smaller than the wall they cover. This allows for expansion and contraction of the materials due to moisture and temperature changes.
The siding material and style can enhance the appearance of the home or business. There is a wide and expanding variety of materials to side with. Some are natural and others are artificial. Every type of siding has its benefits and drawbacks.
Vinyl siding is plastic exterior siding for houses and small apartment buildings. It is great for decoration and weatherproofing. Vinyl siding is an engineered product, manufactured primarily from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin.

Wood siding is very versatile in style and can be used on a wide variety of building structures. It can be painted or stained in any color palette desired. Installation and repair is relatively simple. Wood siding requires more maintenance than other popular solutions, requiring treatment every four to nine years depending on the severity of the elements to which it is exposed. Ants and termites are a threat to many types of wood siding. Wood is a moderately renewable resource and is biodegradable. It can also provide some minor insulation and structural properties as compared to thinner cladding materials.

Metal siding comes in a variety of metals, styles, and colors. Aluminum siding is ideal for homes in coastal areas (with lots of moisture and salt). Steel can form rust, which can weaken the structure of the material, and corrosion-resistant coatings for steel, such as zinc, sometimes fail around the edges as years pass. However, an advantage of steel siding can be its dent-resistance, which is excellent for regions with severe storms—especially if the area is prone to hail.

Importance of Proper Siding Installation
The primary purpose of your home’s siding is to protect the home, as well as foundation and contents within it. Siding protects the home from rain, snow, wind, and any other strong weather elements. When it is colder, a well installed siding can protect the interior of the home from the cold weather outside. It can also help keep in the heat that is produced for your home, so you can stay warm and comfortable in the winter.
