What Type of Siding is Right for my Home?

You choose a particular type of siding for your home based not only on aesthetic preference but also based on cost and functional requirements. While each type of siding available on the market has its own advantages and disadvantages, modern home siding materials are by and large well-engineered, durable, and cost-effective. With material quality at an all-time high, the one variable is installation expertise. It’s critical that your home’s cladding and underlayment are installed with skill and precision. In Milwaukee, Waukesha, and Ozaukee County, JBS Construction is your best choice for Milwaukee siding and exterior remodeling.

For many homeowners, having siding is a great way to keep their homes looking good without having to invest in repainting, caulking, and sealing. And a practically maintenance-free home exterior isn’t the only reason to invest in siding for your home. Siding can provide additional insulation, lower utility bills and increase resale value, and the work can be completed in just a few days. If you’re looking for a fast, affordable way to transform and improve your home’s exterior, siding should be on your short list.

We install three of the most popular types of siding: vinyl, fiber cement and engineered wood. We have found these types of siding to be popular with homeowners for a number of reasons, including good durability and lifespan, reduced upkeep over real wood siding, and having a nice selection of color and trim choices available.

Vinyl siding is made from flexible plastic, and it is popular with homeowners because it is durable, requires much less upkeep than wood, comes in a wide variety of colors and styles, and can last a long time. In fact, some manufacturers offer lifetime warranties for their vinyl siding. And, in many cases, these warranties are transferable if a house is sold.

Fiber cement siding is made from sand, cement and cellulose. It is popular with some homeowners because it offers even more durability than vinyl, and it needs even less upkeep. Like vinyl, it comes in a wide variety of colors and styles, and it has an even longer lifespan than vinyl, due to its damage-resistant nature.

Engineered wood siding is made from wood fragments that are bound together with a resin binder, creating siding that looks like wood but doesn’t have any of the material flaws found in real wood. It is popular with price-conscious homeowners because it offers the classic beauty of real wood siding at lower, more affordable prices. Like other modern types of siding, it is also durable (often lasting up to 30 years or more) and practically maintenance free.
