The home’s exterior covering is the most crucial aspect of protecting a homeowner’s investment. It also will influence the appearance and curb appeal of your home. There are many choices on the market today, including brick, stucco, wood clap, vinyl, and cement board, to name a few. It is essential to choose a material that has a proven reliability record. Multibillion-dollar lawsuits have occurred recently over Masonite, wood composite, and certain stucco sidings. The homeowner in these suits typically recovers only a percentage of the depreciated material cost. This may amount to only 10% to 15% of the price of re-siding a home.
Vinyl siding and fiber cement board (commonly referred to as Hardiplank) are popular siding materials. Both siding materials have proven reliability records and are affordable compared to brick, stucco, or other exterior choices. Vinyl siding is unchallenged in cost and low maintenance and does not rot or flake. Furthermore, a recent report found that it recovers nearly 70% of the installation cost at resale. It is important to note that vinyl siding is available in many grades.
