Types of Siding

There are many factors to consider when choosing a siding material. The best option will enhance your home’s beauty, boost energy efficiency and satisfy your tolerance for maintenance. It sounds like a tall order, but our siding contractors in Manassas, VA, offer several materials that could be the perfect fit for you. Let’s take a look at the most popular.

Vinyl siding. Manufactured from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), vinyl siding is produced in a variety of colors and profiles. Horizontal panels simulate lapboards, while vertical panels simulate boards with battens.

Insulated vinyl siding. Insulated vinyl features rigid foam insulation to increase efficiency and reduce exterior noise infiltration.

Fiber cement siding. One of the latest siding innovations, fiber cement is produced from a mixture of sand, cement and wood fiber. Planks are molded to closely resemble wood or can be smooth-finished. When painted at the factory, fiber cement typically offers a 15-year paint warranty.

Shingle and shake siding. Shakes are thicker than shingles, and both are primarily sold unpainted. However, this type of siding is also available pre-stained, painted and treated with a fire retardant or preservative. Shingles and shakes are often custom-cut in specialty patterns to add character to a home’s architecture.

Solid boards. Another alternative to wood siding, solid board siding is typically milled from redwood and cedar for rot resistance. It’s sold untreated, treated with water repellent, primed, painted or stained, and can be applied horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

Exterior plywood siding. Most plywood siding species are Douglas fir, Western red cedar, redwood and Southern pine, and come in a broad range of textures and patterns.
