New siding can transform your curb appeal, raise your property value and provide you with the functional requirements of increased energy efficiency and better insulation.
Sounds great but where do you start? When you live in the Minneapolis–St. Paul area, siding for homes needs to take on the extremes from temperature fluctuations, weather events, insects, mold and more. Thus, siding needs to be durable and long-lasting but look great with minimal maintenance. A tall task indeed. As a result, numerous types, styles and contractors tell you their options are the best.
Re-siding a home is not an everyday occurrence. We typically see a major storm or weather event thrust homeowners into an unexpected situation: re-siding part or all of their home. TD Roofing and Remodeling professionals help determine the best option in terms of style, longevity and budget.
Here are some siding options to consider:
Fiber Cement Siding
Made popular by brands like James Hardie. Does not require painting, minimal maintenance and is fire, insect and mold resistant. A great product but it is on the higher end of the price scale.
LP SmartSide Siding
A popular and less expensive option, SmartSide siding requires more maintenance compared to fiber cement; maintenance includes painting, scraping and removal of mold and mildew.
Traditionally, cedar siding has been a top choice for homeowners because it is a long-lasting and beautiful option. Deep woodgrain patterns and deep shadow patterns create a charming style for Minnesota homeowners looking for a custom-crafted look.
Steel or Aluminum Siding
Sturdy and long-lasting; steel or aluminum siding holds up well to in the Upper Midwest climate. It won’t rust, chip or peel and is virtually maintenance free. The downside: it is prone to denting in significant hailstorms and the color may fade over a long period of time.
A more economical choice for siding. Looks great, but lacks longevity of cedar and fiber cement. Color and texture can take on the look of handcrafted wood siding with less maintenance and care required than wood. Insulated vinyl siding can provide even more energy efficiency—warm in winter and cooler in the summer.
