A Look at Vinyl House Siding, Cedar Siding, Pine Siding and Masonite Siding
By Mark J. Donovan
||Home Siding is a critical component in the home design and planning process of your home. There are so many types of home siding and home siding colors it can become difficult for a homeowner to determine what home siding is right for their home. The home siding article below discusses vinyl siding, cedar siding, masonite siding, and pine siding.
There are a number of siding choices a do it yourself homeowner can consider. My experience has mostly been with clapboard style siding, so my examples and opinions are somewhat limited. But I’ll review the types I am familiar with.
Pine Home Siding: I used this once on one of my homes and swear that I will never use it again. Within 2 years the clapboards were cupping (curling) and the nails were popping out. By the third year the home owner needed to re-side the house. It is relatively in-expensive in the short term, however you will pay for your decision again within 2-3 years.
It is however, quite a bit more expensive (approximately 2X), and will require painting every 5 years or so.
