What Is the Best House Siding Material?

That’s because siding makes up most of your home’s exterior and provides several performance and design functions. Thinks about it: Siding should be able to protect your home from the elements and continue to look good no matter what Mother Nature throws at it. Of course, not all siding is made to the same standards, and some types of material are better than others in a few critical functions.

Why Industry Experts Tout Polymer Siding

While fiber cement, wood, brick, and synthetic stone are common house siding materials, the most popular is vinyl—for understandable reasons. It’s tough, it can be crafted in different appealing design profiles, and it’s very affordable. But polymer—a fairly new material on the market—has gained in popularity for the same reasons, and is proving to be even more versatile and cost effective. Engineered from a durable plastic called polypropylene resin, polymer siding offers:

  • Exceptional durability – Polymer siding will never warp, crack, chip, fade, or peel. It also has three times the impact resistance of vinyl siding.
  • Customization opportunities – Because polymer can be easily molded and shaped, polymer siding can be made to look like virtually any type of wood or stone. This allows you to achieve a natural aesthetic while enjoying the superior durability of an engineered siding product.
  • Low maintenance – When polymer siding is manufactured, its color is baked directly into the polymer. This eliminates the need for regular upkeep and ensures your siding will look freshly painted long into the future.
