Different Siding Materials for Your Home?

There are many different types of siding materials for the home. Siding is the house's outside skin and helps protect the home from weather. Different types of siding include wood shingles or shakes, which are expensive to buy, difficult to install and not fire resistant. Vinyl siding is inexpensive to install but might melt in the case of fire. Aluminum makes an excellent siding, however. It's still moderately expensive to buy and a bit difficult to install, but it lasts much longer than wood siding and resists fire. Its one drawback is that chalking might happen after about fifteen years, but chalk can be removed by scrubbing, then coating with a metal sealer.
