Siding is the building material that secures to the exterior of a home’s structure. Siding protects against mould, mildew, termites and other critters that could get into the side of your home. Moisture levels will determine what types of material will protect your home from condensation and other water-based damages. Common materials include wood, vinyl, fibre cement, aluminum, stucco and stone/brick veneer. Siding can be installed horizontally, vertically or diagonally and comes in all different textures, sizes and colors.
Vinyl siding is durable and more common, with a variation of colors and textures available.
Metal siding such as aluminum and steel is usually associated with retro and modern looking homes and gives a unique appeal if installed correctly.
