Choosing a Siding Contractor

HomeProMatch - Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Siding replacement is one of the best investments a homeowner can make in their home. New siding can add curb appeal and make your home more energy efficient. Proper installation is key for long-term siding performance. When installed properly, some siding materials can last up to 50 years. Vinyl, fiber cement, wood, and aluminum are commonly-installed siding materials. Replacing your worn out or damaged siding can increase property value and help your home sell faster during resale.

When should I replace my siding?

Many types of siding last for decades with proper maintenance. However, all siding eventually needs to be replaced. Check for these cosmetic symptoms when determining if it’s time for siding replacement: rot, cracks, gaps, bulging, warping, bubbling, blistering, or fading. Dents or chips in siding are common signs of hail damage. Damaged siding can allow moisture buildup behind the siding that can lead to mold, mildew, or rot. New siding can offer less maintenance, greater energy efficiency, and higher resale value.

What is the most durable siding for a house?

Siding materials all have advantages and disadvantages. The durability of siding depends largely on the weather. Temperature, humidity, and moisture all affect siding performance. For example, metal siding outperforms vinyl in extreme cold, while wood siding isn’t ideal in humid climates. When choosing the best siding for your home, consider the performance, cost, and maintenance. A HomePro Match contractor can answer your questions about the durability of specific siding options.

What is the cheapest siding material?

Vinyl siding is the most affordable and versatile siding material available. Metal siding is second to vinyl, followed by wood, and finally, stucco. When it comes to installation, metal siding installation is typically the cheapest, followed by vinyl siding installation. Wood siding and stucco tend to be more expensive due to the installation. In terms of long-term savings, stucco typically offers the greatest efficiency, especially in warm climates, while metal outperforms other materials in cold climates. Siding prices vary depending on the specific style, availability, and region. Your HomePro Match contractor can help you choose the best siding option for your budget.

How long does vinyl siding last?

Most vinyl siding lasts over 20 years. The longevity of vinyl siding depends on several factors, including the manufacturer, style, maintenance, weather, and temperature changes. Vinyl siding doesn’t rot like wood or easily dent like aluminum. With occasional cleaning and very little maintenance and repair, vinyl siding can look good and last for decades. Learn more.
