Siding Reviews

Not all siding is created equal, and we take great pride and reviewing the options on the market, so you don’t have to. What Factors Do We Look For? When we’re reviewing siding, we look for the factors that would help you decide, including color, style, material, warranty, availability, and price. Other factors can come into play with certain brands if special features are available.

House siding review process

Siding Colors

What colors are available? Are their patterns? Different textures? Designs? Different sidings brands offer different variations, so we list all available. Often select siding models are available in select colors, so it’s best to select your color first before you decide on your model.

Siding Styles

Siding can come in different styles, including lap, board & batten, log, shake, Dutch lap, beaded lap, alternating exposures, T1-11 siding, and more. We’ll break them down into different types if you don’t know what these are. For example, lap siding is horizontal, while board & batten is horizontal. Shake siding looks like shingles, while T1-11 siding is actual plywood. We try to break down the look and feel of each, as well as any pros and cons.

Siding Materials Review

Siding comes in all materials, including vinyl, fiber-cement, wood, steel, stone, brick, and more. Some materials can come printed, so they appear like other materials. For example, steel can appear like wood, so you get a more durable siding without the headache of actual wood. The material will impact the price, and vinyl siding is often the most popular and cost-efficient siding on the market.

We Review Also The Siding Warranty

Siding is a big investment, so you want to ensure it’s protected. We look at any warranty, explaining what’s covered so you can sleep easy knowing that it will be replaced free of charge if something happens. Depending on where you live, you’ll want to watch the different types of warranties. Some only cover paint and fading, while others will cover weather damage. Some warranties have a lifetime guarantee, while others have a double lifetime, covering the siding if you sell your house.

Siding Availability

Some siding is only available in limited geographic locations, so we share if there are any distribution limitations. Siding that retails through big box stores like Home Depot will be readily available, while others smaller brands are limited to certain areas.

Siding Price Review

Budget is a huge factor when it comes to picking a siding for your home, so we consider the price of the materials and the price to install. Of course, each project is different, but a ballpark can give you a sense of what to expect. 

Siding Companies Reviews – What’s the Process?

To review a siding company, we explore their company offerings, noting all the information that may be helpful to know. Then, we look at customer reviews, exploring the good, the bad, and the ugly to understand the product fully. Then, we get to work, writing everything from a fair and impartial positioning so you can make the decision that’s best for you and your home.
