Vinyl siding has been around for a long time. First introduced into the market in the 1950’s, decades of development has kept this material as a ranking top contender in the siding market. Low-maintenance and cost-effective. Vinyl siding today is available in various widths, exposures, and design. Unlike its predecessors, vinyl is now manufactured in widths of up to .046. With the high-pressure injection mold technology available, vinyl can now be manufactured to exhibit realistic “faux” wood-grains, and in addition to standard lap, vinyl now offers designs in board and batten, shake or scallop panels, and even in stone.

Engineered Wood Siding
Let’s face it. Wood and natural conifer products are
expensive. They are hard to maintain, and if not given regular and
costly repair, the life-span of these materials will be limited.
Engineered wood siding products were developed for the consumer
to offer a cost effective, low maintenance siding. Whether it’s called
LP SmartSide, Truwood or any other manufacturer, these products were
designed to eliminate the flaws that natural hardwoods have. These
products in large are weather resistant, help prevent

Engineered wood siding is easier to install than real wood siding, and less costly. This is because engineered siding is typically lighter in weight and has designed features that make the over-all installation easier. Available in horizontal lap, board and batten, trim and panels, these products are typically available pre-finished, or primed; and offer warranties of up to 30 years.
If you are considering whether your project is a good candidate for engineered wood siding, one of our siding experts at Built Strong Exteriors will gladly assist you.
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber Cement Siding products have been around a very long time. For almost a century, there have been variations of this engineered wood in the exterior industry. Though it was once made with asbestos, fiber cement siding is now comprised of mostly cement, cellulose, wood fibers and sand. The main selling-point of fiber cement is its durability. Available in most siding patterns, this product is resistant to warping and accepts most paint applications. When it comes to the long term functionality of this product, installed properly, it has a Class A Fire Rating and an expected lifetime rating of 25-30 years.
