How To Choose The Right Siding For Your Aurora Home

When it comes to residing your Aurora home there are a lot of decisions to make like who to install your siding and which siding to install. Choosing the best installer and the right siding for your home go hand in hand. This is because, not all siding companies install every type of siding, so you want to choose an installer that is well-versed in the siding you choose for the job. Getting a good idea of which type or types of siding you are interested in, is a good way to begin your home siding search. At Colorado Siding we offer a number of different types of siding and have outlined some of the pros and cons of the most common siding styles that we install.

Pros and Cons Of Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding is probably the most common siding in the US today. The reasons why people love it for their homes is because it’s long lasting, inexpensive, and virtually maintenance-free. It never needs to be painted, is easily cleaned and lasts about 40 years.

Cost For Vinyl Siding: $1-$6 per square foot, uninstalled

Pros and Cons Of Wood Siding

Wood siding is one of the oldest types of siding on the market and a favorite for those seeking a rustic look. Although the types of wood used for wood siding (Cedar and Redwood) are naturally decay-resistant, it is flammable which could be a problem in Colorado. It requires more maintenance than other types of siding but damaged boards are easy to replace.

Cost For Wood Siding: $1-$4 per square foot, cedar uninstalled; $5 per square foot, redwood uninstalled

Pros and Cons Of Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber-cement siding is a composite of cement, sand, and cellulose fiber. It has all the fantastic qualities of vinyl and the look of wood, making it a great choice for form and function. It is less expensive than wood but more expensive than vinyl. However, the look and quality make it well worth the extra expense.
