If you’re looking to upgrade your home’s exterior, installing new siding or exterior finishing is a great option. Not only can installing new siding improve the way your home looks, it can also improve indoor comfort, energy efficiency, and home values. Here’s a look at four different siding materials to consider when updating your home’s exterior.

Fiber Cement

Fiber cement is a durable amalgamation of sand, cement, and cellulose fibers. Largely unchanged over the last 100 years, fiber cement is known for being extremely durable and low maintenance. It will require occasional painting, but will otherwise require very little attention. Another advantage to fiber cement is that it’s very energy efficient.

Natural Cedar

If you’re looking for a more natural look, consider the benefits of cedar siding. Cedar is a lightweight, insulative wood that can protect your home from all types of weather. Additionally, cedar is naturally decay- and bug-resistant, which means you’ll never have to worry about failed siding or repairs.


One of the most popular siding materials available today is vinyl siding. Vinyl siding is very affordable, durable material that is available in a wide range of colors, styles and sizes. This siding option is deal for homeowners who are looking for maximum flexibility in choosing the look and style of their home’s exterior

Engineered Stone Veneer

Finally, consider finishing your home’s exterior with engineered stone veneer for a high-end look. Engineered stone veneer is a manufactured finish that mimics the look of real stone down to the minutest of details. Even up close, you won’t be able to tell that it was made in a factory!
