Aluminum siding weighs more than the newer sidings available on the market today and that makes it more time consuming to apply to your home and more costly. Aluminum siding has the baked on enamel finish, and if scratched, the paint will be removed and the bare metal below will be visible. However, due to the expansive properties of vinyl, aluminum siding takes paint better if you ever decide to re-paint. As far as maintenance goes it needs to be cleaned once a year, and repainted every so often typically 5-10 years.
Cedar Shakes Siding
Cedar shake siding uses rugged, hand-cut shingles that are made by splitting the wood following the grain. Cedar shake siding is a great addition to your home because it provides an extra level of protection against the elements as well as natural insulative qualities. Add that to the fact that cedar is a very durable natural material, and is known for its longevity. Cedar shake siding is one of the many varieties of cedar siding products and is distinguished by being made up of small pieces of cedar that are attached to an exterior wall. Cedar shake siding provides the beauty and comfort of wood without the expensive maintenance of painting every few years. It’s also naturally protected from the elements and lasts for years, but over time some it can become dark and old-looking.
