Exploring Siding Options for Your Home

Finding the right siding for your home can be a delicate balancing act. On one hand, you want to choose something that brings out the best in your home and represents its authentic character and beauty. On the other, you also want to keep your home safe and protect it from moisture, pests, and weather.

Here are some popular siding choices for Colorado Springs homes:

  • Fiber cement – one of the most durable siding options, fiber cement is very strong and beautiful but it is also one of the more expensive options
  • Wood/cedar – wood siding adds character and aesthetic appeal, but it’s also prone to water damage and requires more maintenance
  • Engineered wood – a good compromise if you want cedar siding, engineered wood looks like authentic wood siding, but is more durable and requires less maintenance
  • Metal – steel and aluminum siding are quite popular for commercial properties as well as homeowners who look a more modern look
