When choosing new siding for your home, why not choose one of the two most popular siding options in the country: fiber cement siding or vinyl siding in Northern VA? Both of these are wonderful choices and there are benefits to choosing either one.
Both vinyl siding and fiber cement siding are known for their beautiful, detailed appearance. In fact, they are both often chosen for their ability to look like just about any other siding choice. Vinyl can be molded to look like wood, with all of the rich detail that wood has but without the maintenance. Fiber cement siding can be molded to look like just about any other siding material so that you can even mix and match looks for your house. Whether your style is board and batten, plank, or shakes, both vinyl siding and fiber cement siding can give you the look that you want for your home.
When it comes to maintenance, both of these two siding options are a good choice. Vinyl siding is extremely low-maintenance. Other than washing with simple soap and water (if it needs to be washed) every few years, your vinyl siding will have virtually no other maintenance. In fact, your vinyl siding in Northern VA is one of the lowest maintenance siding materials available. No painting, sealing, or special tools are needed. Fiber cement siding requires very little maintenance, as well. If you choose fiber cement siding, you might need to have it sealed or painted every once in a while in order to maintain its water-resistance, but if you do this minimal care, this siding material far outlasts many other siding options.
If you choose a trusted contractor in Northern VA, your siding will come with a great warranty. Not only will the siding itself come with a great warranty, but if you choose the right contractor, you should be offered a lifetime warranty on workmanship, as well. If for any reason your siding needs repairs or replacement in the future, you have the peace of mind knowing that it will be taken care of. Once your siding is in place, you will never have to worry about it again.
Both vinyl siding in Northern VA and fiber cement siding are considered affordable choices, especially when you consider the long-term value. Neither choice requires expensive maintenance or repairs and both last a long time. When compared to more expensive siding options such as brick, wood, or stone, both vinyl siding and fiber cement siding cost up to 25 percent less than those higher-end options.
