As spring rolls around here in the Monticello area, it’s common to start to think about hiring exterior siding contractors to finally get that project done. After all, whether you’re seeking new siding for aesthetic or functional reasons, the warmer weather is a perfect time for your exterior contractor to get to work. Summer is often considered the busy season for home exterior contractors too, so it’s a good idea to get a hold of your siding company now and start planning early.
Of course, aside from calling your siding installation contractor, there’s plenty you, as a homeowner, can do to get ahead of the game this season. For one, you can determine what siding type will be right for your home. Perfect Exteriors is here to help. Below, we’ll list a few common types of siding, what they look like, and what kinds of households they might work best to accommodate.
A Brief Word of Caution: Individual Consultation is Always Best
Though we at Perfect Exteriors present the below for informational purposes, we know that a one-on-one consultation with us is the only way to address your individual circumstances and match you with the perfect siding. Education and research are useful tools, but always seek the advice of a professional when you’re considering any type of home renovation, as they might be aware of factors you don’t have the expertise to consider.
It goes without saying, though, that you can still come to the table with your own ideas after you’ve considered the following siding types:
- Vinyl siding | Able to mimic many textures and available in a variety of colors, vinyl siding renders itself a popular choice for households all over Minnesota. Its low-maintenance nature and affordability also are appealing.
- Engineered wood siding | The classical beauty of the real wood in this siding type is difficult to replicate. Hardier than full wood siding, engineered wood siding is perfect for homes looking for the aesthetic of wood without as much of a maintenance requirement.
- Fiber cement siding | Durable and long-lasting, fiber cement siding, much like vinyl, is available in many colors and styles. It’s a great fit for homes looking for the highest quality in color and durability.
- Steel siding | Sleek and modern-looking, steel siding is ideal for homeowners looking to add a touch of contemporary chic to their homes, while refusing to compromise on strength.
