Exterior Siding Options

The cost of siding a home largely differs on the type of materials you choose. Vinyl for example isn’t the same cost as wood. The material also plays a role in how easy or difficult the project will be.

There are a variety of options available when it comes to siding. However, in the Pacific Northwest, the most popular choices include vinyl, fiber cement, and wood siding.

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl is one of the most popular choices for home siding because it’s affordable ($5 per square foot) and comes in various colors. Vinyl isn’t prone to splitting, cracking, or warping and it’s also low-maintenance. All that is needed is an occasional rinse. For colder climates, it’s recommended to use insulated vinyl for energy savings and warmth.

Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber cement is another popular option for siding because it’s highly durable and has a long life span. It’s around $6 per square foot and is heat and fire resistant. Fiber cement siding isn’t prone to splitting, warping, or rotting. Fiber cement is manufactured from sustainable materials and can be made into virtually any style, shape, and color. It can also be designed to replicate the look of wood. Fiber cement is also very low maintenance. It just needs an occasional rinse.

Wood Siding

From spruce and redwood to fir and cypress, there are various options when it comes to wood siding. Each with their own price range which varies between $2 and $6. A popular choice when it comes to wood siding is cedar because it’s strong, durable, and resistant to mold and mildew. Cedar siding is also low maintenance.
