To find the best option for your needs, weigh the benefits of each to your unique expectations.

Vinyl siding for your home

With Vinyl siding you’ll choose from a wide selection of vibrant colors, colors that won’t fade over time and do not require scraping and repainting. The low maintenance of vinyl siding is just part of what sets it apart from metal or wooden siding. Vinyl siding is far more energy-efficient and durable than either wood or metal. It is also easier to install, which makes for quick and easy projects. Vinyl is a budget friendly option that is low in both material and installation cost. Vinyl or composite siding is the most popular option in America today. It lasts an average of 30 years depending on the elements and it’s easy to clean. All States recommends their composite siding with contour foam that holds up better in our Kansas weather than traditional vinyl siding.

For a natural look for your home consider wood siding

Wood siding is a good option if you want that natural wood finish on your home, cabin, or barn. Keep in mind that the installation and material costs are relatively high. Wood siding has a decently involved installation process – it is not a quick project. The cost may vary depending on the type of wood you select for your home. Wood must be regularly maintained or else you could experience insect or water damage quickly after getting it installed.

Metal siding is a good option for industrial-style buildings

If you’re wanting an industrial look for your home – metal siding could be for you. It’s very low maintenance, you’re less likely to experience mold or fungus growth, and it repels insects. Metal siding generally is on the more expensive end when shopping for siding options. It’s also more prone to dents and damage from hail or severe weather and replacing a damaged panel can be very tricky and expensive.
