Information about 3 Things to Consider While Planning a Siding Replacement
Always do some research before starting any home improvement or siding replacement project. What do you need to research and consider when planning a siding replacement?

The durability of the facing material and the local climate
No matter how durable your siding is, it won’t last long if it’s not adapted to the local climate. Remember: there is no one-size-fits-all approach to home improvement projects, and siding replacement projects are no exception.
Here is an overview of some of the most popular types of siding:
- Vinyl siding – Vinyl siding is a smart choice when you simply don’t have time to do tasks like siding maintenance, or wish that siding maintenance was a little more convenient. Compared to other facing materials, vinyl requires less maintenance. It does not have to be repainted and dirt that adheres to its surface can simply be washed off with water.
- Fiber cement siding – Fiber cement siding is durable enough to withstand high winds and hail damage. It’s also resistant to common siding problems like insect damage. (There are no cavities for pests to nest in. Not to mention, pests cannot draw food from the mix of sand, portland cement, water, and cellulose fibers that make up fiber cement siding.)
- Cedar siding – Cedar wood facades (also known as cedar shakes or cedar shingles) can add a refined elegance to your exterior and add to the attractiveness of your home.
To find out more about your options, contact one of your local roofing companies or sales representatives. Because they are familiar with the local climate, they can make better recommendations.
Installing insulated siding can help lower your utility bills. The higher the R-value of a siding, the better its insulating properties.
When it comes to exterior design, consistency is crucial. Because of this, it’s important to choose a siding replacement that will compliment the other parts of your exterior. Matching the colors can be difficult, however. If you have difficulty choosing a trim color, don’t hesitate to consult an experienced contractor.
