Red James Hardie Siding

Your home’s siding plays a crucial role in keeping your house safe, comfortable, and damage free. It also boosts your curb appeal. If you are considering a siding replacement or installation, you are probably wondering how to choose the right siding for your West Michigan home.

Why Does It Matter What Type of Siding You Choose?

There are many different types of siding, and it is important to find the one that works best for your house. Every customer will have their own preferences regarding siding material. Whatever material you choose, however, it is essential that you select siding products that come from reputable manufacturers. Good siding brands are dedicated to research and innovation and will ensure that their siding is durable. The last thing you want after doing a siding installation or replacement project is a product that gets damaged or loses functionality quickly. At West Michigan Roofing, we have partnered with some of the best manufacturers in the industry, including CertainTeed and James Hardie to ensure that our clients get siding that will hold up.

Factors That Impact Your Choice of Siding

Among the factors that will impact your decision when it comes to siding type are:

  • Budget: Every homeowner has a different budget for their home renovation projects, and the type of siding you select for your home will be impacted by price. If you want to keep things affordable, our vinyl siding offers excellent value, is of high quality and is durable. Aluminum siding and wood also offer great value. Options like stucco siding are often the most expensive.
  • Aesthetic Preferences: You want to love the way your home looks, and siding is a great way to add curb appeal. It is important to look at pictures of different siding types so that you can get an idea of what you like.
  • Energy Efficiency: You might want to consider energy-efficient siding, which can save you money on utility bills while also helping the environment. Insulated vinyl siding like Mastic is a great option to boost energy efficiency.

Benefits of Common Siding Materials

Different siding materials offer different benefits. For example, as CertainTeed 5-star contractors, our knowledgeable siding specialists often recommend CertainTeed polymer and vinyl siding for its quality and longevity, ease of cleaning, and wide range of style and color options.

Our Mastic vinyl siding is another great choice because it is durable, insulated, and available in different styles including cedar shake, clapboard, and board and batten.

You might also choose to go with wood, which is an environmentally friendly choice and can be painted or stained many different colors, but also requires extensive maintenance. Aluminum siding is another option and offers fire-resistance, but can be prone to rust, dents, and damage.
