Vinyl vs wooden siding; as siding installers, we can provide both types. We supply other styles as well, such as masonry, cement, and cultured stone siding. However, vinyl and wood are the most typical. Which is a better fit for your house exterior?
Let’s begin with vinyl. This is the most mainstream siding and the one homeowners most often request. The reason vinyl siding is so commonplace is simple: it’s affordable yet high-quality. Vinyl is also mainly maintenance-free and only needs a light washing every three to four months.
With vinyl, you also have a multitude of color palettes, ranging from the typical neutral shades to the more eye-catching bold hues.
What about wooden siding? Vinyl is quite attractive, but wood has no equal with its natural and organic appearance. It gives the house a cabin-like feel without an overly rustic vibe. This is especially the case when the renovations include new windows. Wood, however, does need staining every few years. It also requires preventive measures for stopping the growth of mold and mildew. Finally, wood tends to be more expensive than vinyl.
If you’re undecided between vinyl and wood siding, then we suggest a “middle-of-the-road” option in the form of faux wood. These are constructed from vinyl but have the surface texture of weathered wood. Vinyl is versatile and can even mimic the look of other siding types, such as brick and stucco.
