Siding is a major part of your home’s exterior appeal. For this reason, you want to pick siding that is going to draw out the aesthetic of the rest of your home. However, many types of siding require pretty regular maintenance to look the part. Here are some options of low maintenance siding that you can take advantage of to improve your home’s function and overall look...
Fiber cement, which we offer and service in the form of Hardie Board from James Hardie, is a mixture of wood pulp and cement. This mixture is pressed together to form hard boards that offer a variety of benefits. Not only is fiber cement siding incredibly durable, making it easy to maintain, but it is also very affordable and comes in a variety of different designs (including many that mimic the look of wood grain).
Stucco is a type of plaster that is mixed together from cement, limestone, sand, and water. Because of how porous stucco is, it is incredibly resistant to water damage. Stucco doesn’t really need to be cleaned, which already makes it a low maintenance siding. On top of that, stucco is designed to last a long time, meaning that you won’t have to worry much about it beyond the initial application.
Vinyl is one of the most affordable materials to use for exterior siding. In addition to being so cheap upfront, vinyl is also incredibly weather resistant, and will withstand the elements to a greater degree than almost any other material, meaning it does not have to get replaced often. The drawback to vinyl siding is that it will start to look dirty, over time, and needs to be power washed more often than other types of siding.
