Siding protects the exterior side of a wall of a house or commercial building. The material is attached on the outside of the home for looks and features. There are multiple kinds of siding: vinyl siding, metal siding, wood siding, fiber siding, brick siding and many more. Above and Beyond will walk you through the types of siding, the use of these types of sidings and how we install them for you.
Choosing a Siding
There are multiple kinds of siding as stated above. We will go through each of the core groups of siding. Although there are multiple choices to choose from, it’s important to look at the factors around your home that could affect certain types of siding.
Things to consider when determining the types of siding:
- • Weather
- • Energy
- • Design
- • Durability
- • Cost
When your home is being built or reconstructed, it’s beat to think about the weather conditions it will face each season. Here in Kansas, we know our seasons are very distinct. Make sure to choose a water resistant siding versus one that is not as susceptible to variations in climate.
Because our seasons change distinctly from one another, some siding seals thermal insulation better than others. With cold seasons, you will want to make sure to choose a siding that allows for heat to stay trapped inside. This saves money and energy in your home and helps you rest easy for the entire season of winter.
Neighborhoods may have a certain code of style or look you are allowed to implement. Be sure to abide but the guidelines but also make sure you choose a siding that best suits your style.
Some siding styles require more maintenance than others. If you enjoy repainting your home every so often and love change, then select styles are best for you. If you want one installation of siding to go up and never have to change it again, there are other options best for you.
All siding is priced differently than others. Your look and durability don’t have to suffer because of cost. Thanks to the multiple variations of siding, you can choose the look you want, for the price range within your budget.
Types of Siding
Siding is important for many reasons because it is the main feature of your home in looks but also keeps your home grounded and protected. There are multiple kinds of siding. Above and Beyond wants to get you to your dream home so we make it possible to choose from a wide variety.
- • Vinyl siding
- • Metal siding
- • Wood siding
- • Fiber siding
- • Brick or stone siding
Vinyl siding is very durable and lasts for decades long. There are a vast amount of options for vinyl siding and texture. You can choose from a wide range of colors to different textures like wood. This is an added benefit because unlike wood, vinyl siding doesn’t decay and requires very minimal maintenance. This is also one of the cheapest options if you are trying to stay within a certain budget.
Metal siding, although not as popular in Kansas, is a different look. It’s a very modern and unique look. The metal requires pretty much no maintenance and can withstand any type of weather that comes its way.
Wood siding is one look that many people love. It draws a cozy feel of the mountains and nature. Although some maintenance may be required, the wood makes it easy to remove and replace pieces. Because it’s lightweight, the installation time drops and so does the price, making it a more affordable type of siding.
The fourth type of siding is fiber siding. The fiber cement is a popular option because of its resemblance to wood without the possibilities of insect issues in wood. It’s very durable and withstands all seasons. This siding requires a contractor, like Above and Beyond, to properly install because of its specific measurements and need of certain tools.
Brick or stone siding is becoming increasingly popular in Kansas. Its look adds value and resale value to the home. It’s classy; it lasts a lifetime and require no maintenance. The brick or stone siding is fire resistant and durable. Though it can be expensive and time consuming to install, the ending product is well worth it all.
