There are a lot of great choices when it comes to siding your new or existing home, garage or workshop. Learn more about the pros and cons of the most popular materials, so you can make an informed choice.
The siding on your home is an important component of curb appeal, and by extension, the value of your home. It’s also what protects the structure of your home against the elements – high wind, heavy rain, ice, snow, UV radiation, insects – and the damage they can inflict.
When it comes to choosing siding for your home, garage or workshop, there are a number of factors to consider, including aesthetics, installation, maintenance, price and life expectancy. Fortunately, advances in manufacturing mean the latest siding products are more durable and last longer than ever, and many of the products now come in a much wider range of styles and colours. Always check your local building codes when installing siding, as some areas have certain rules about what can, and can’t be installed.
