This is a hard question we get a lot and my answer is, it depends. There are many different factors to consider when you are looking for home exterior siding options.
What to consider when deciding on home exterior siding options?
- What is my budget?
- How long will I live here?
- Is it maintenance free?
- What is the warranty?
- Who is installing my siding?
These are all good questions that need to be answered. The biggest deciding factor I see when I meet with a homeowner is what is your budget.
Typically vinyl siding could be a very cost effective solution. Things to consider when looking at vinyl siding for your Omaha home:
- do you have a good nailable surface?
- Are you going to use insulated siding vs non insulated
If you live in a windy area, vinyl has an easier time of blowing off the house than other materials.
Fiber cement Siding
Fiber cement, is a good choice if you have the right conditions. It can give you the look of real wood siding without the headache of wood siding. Fiber is very heavy though. We do not recommend putting it on older houses as we have seen this cause issues to foundations.
Metal siding, typically in the Midwest we do not recommend this type of siding as we always get hail and metal is not a good insulator.
Hardboard, is a cheaper solutions, however if you do not keep up with maintenance, it tends to absorb water and cause mold and rot.
LP Smart siding
LP Smart siding is relatively newer and an amazing alternative to the rest. Its the most durable and uses zinc borate to resist fungus and decay. This is what most installers recommend.
