Siding: Material Options

Siding: Material Options

Webfoot Painting understands that when it comes to siding, you’ve got questions. And why wouldn’t you? Siding plays a huge part in making sure you have a home that not only meets your aesthetic dreams but is also protected for years to come.

Let's face it, most of us aren't experts when it comes to our home's exterior. And that's perfectly okay! You don't need to be a siding guru because the experts at Webfoot are here to help. We’re addressing each of your frequently asked siding questions 

What are my siding options?

Choosing the Right Option for Your Home

Selecting the perfect siding for your home involves a careful consideration of various factors, ranging from budget constraints to enhancing your home's visual appeal. With a multitude of house siding options available, including vinyl siding, wood siding, brick siding, fiber cement siding, and stone veneer, we like to categorize them into three main groups:

Natural Wood Siding:

  • Natural wood siding is the pinnacle of elegance but also comes with a higher price tag and more demanding maintenance requirements.
  • The unparalleled charm of its natural wood grain significantly boosts your home's curb appeal and overall value.
  • The intricate textures it introduces to your home's exterior lend a timeless, rustic aesthetic.

Cement-Based Composite Siding:

  • Cementitious siding occupies the middle ground in terms of cost, making it a popular choice for homeowners seeking a balance between aesthetics and budget.
  • Notable options in this category include James Hardie hardieplank lap siding, a recommendation from Webfoot.
  • While these siding materials are heavier and may require a bit more time for installation, they excel in longevity and minimal maintenance.
  • Their superior paint retention prevents issues like chipping or peeling, contributing to long-lasting visual appeal.
  • Additionally, they offer excellent fire resistance and serve as a robust shield for your home, ensuring protection for years to come.

Wood-Based Composite Siding:

  • Engineered wood siding, exemplified by the proven success of LP SmartSide siding with over 20 years of use, represents a cost-effective alternative with the visual warmth of wood.
  • This category is a budget-friendly choice that doesn't compromise on aesthetics, providing a wood-like appearance without the hefty price tag.
  • Similar to cement-based composite siding, wood-based composites boast excellent paint adhesion, ensuring a fresh and appealing exterior for your home.

Looking into the details of each manufacturer's warranty for your chosen siding material is also important. This warranty not only offers peace of mind but also reflects the manufacturer's confidence in the product's quality and durability.
