This type of siding comes in a vast abundance of different colors and styles, and it is a sure bet to keep your home protected from the various weather ailments which impact all our homes. Not much else to say about vinyl siding, except that if you're unsure about which type of siding to get for your home, standard vinyl siding is typically a good bet...
Insulated Vinyl Siding
As you may have probably guessed, insulated vinyl siding is essentially identical to vinyl siding, albeit one important difference. This type of siding comes with built in insulation. Before any siding project, a house is always insulated with the proper insulator, and then siding is installed over top of it, but with insulated vinyl siding, one major step is cut out, and the built-in insulation provides the necessary insulation for your home, so it just goes on top of the structure, and it's one and done!
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding is a mixture of sand, cement, and cellulose fibers. Whoa! Sounds complicated, doesn't it? No, not really. Fiber cement siding is a strong type of siding consisting of overlapping horizontal boards. It looks quite like wooden siding, except of the materials that is composed of. Fiber cement siding has the added benefit of being more resistant to fire damage, and it is also a good option for use on soffets and such.
