Planning to replace your siding? Here’s some basic information on two installation options that you’ll want to know about first.
Though originally used on barns and farmhouses, vertical siding today is used by creative homeowners to give their houses a quaint rural charm. That’s because by installing boards upright, you create vertical lines that make your home look taller and more interesting.
Siding installed in this manner generally gives off an old-world, countryside appeal, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have it on a contemporary style home. Use it to complement shake or slate roofing in Troy, MI homes like yours or have it installed next to tall glass windows with simple grille designs for a more updated look.
HardiePanel® vertical siding from James Hardie® can give your modern home a rural-inspired visual boost. Made from top-grade fiber cement, this sturdy siding option can provide your home years of outstanding weather protection. Special ColorPlus® Technology also gives it low-maintenance beauty that lasts for years to come.
Installing siding this way may be the norm, but who said traditional can’t be stunning? These days, you can have horizontal lap siding in a variety of colors, textures, and sizes. While this siding choice blends well in virtually any home, it works best with the simple, symmetrical Troy roofing found in many Cape Cod or Colonial homes.
Vinyl lends itself well to horizontal siding application. Many homeowners appreciate its understated beauty, minimal upkeep, and relatively long service life. It provides sufficient protection from the elements as well. Some vinyl siding even comes with advanced insulation properties to help with heating and cooling inside the home.
Mastic Home Exteriors manufactures some of the best horizontal vinyl siding in the business. The traditional lap siding variety creates clean, crisp lines across the home’s exteriors. You can even choose from 13 different product lines with varying textures, colors, and grain finishes. Mastic also offers an insulated vinyl option if you’re concerned about energy efficiency.
