Your home’s siding plays a vital role in protecting your home from the elements. It also creates the biggest piece of your home’s curb appeal and is the most visible element of your home’s appearance from the street. When choosing the right siding, there are a number of considerations you need to take into account. At The Construction Group in St. Paul, we understand the importance of making sure your investment in siding is the right one. This guide will walk you through the things you need to consider when choosing the best siding for your home.


1.      Cement Fiber

Cement fiber is some of the most durable siding options out there. Cement fiber offers fire-resistant protection for your home and is also resistant to insects, mold, mildew, and other biological elements. It is also incredibly impact-resistant. Best of all, it maintains the same great look as its wood siding counterparts and won’t age or fade over time.


2.      Steel

Although it doesn’t have the look of wood siding, steel siding is a terrific long-lasting siding alternative. Steel is also eco-friendly, making it a great option if you’re interested in reducing your family’s footprint. Steel siding is also attractive and will not fade over time.


3.      Vinyl

Vinyl has stood the test of time as the traditional alternative to wood siding. This popular siding comes in a wide range of looks and is incredibly versatile. But the thing that makes vinyl the most popular choice for homeowners is its affordability.


4.      Hardboard

Hardboard siding is a synthetic wood siding option. This synthetically constructed wood option is a composite of wood and other materials. It has the appeal of cedar, but it is resistant to insects, rodents, mold, and other unwanted biological materials.


5.      Cedar

If you are dreaming of a natural look for your home, cedar is the best option. This beautiful, traditional siding looks incredible on older homes. Cedar is also insect resistant and resistant to rust.
