New Hampshire Siding: Making The Best Choice

Living in New England, homes are subjected to various forms of weather. From the summer that brings extended days of excessive heat to the winter with strong winds and ice, there seems to be no in between. So, when it comes to choosing the best materials for your home, details matter. For example, New Hampshire siding offers various options, but not all are ideal for the weather conditions.

In this article, the team from Corriveau Contracting is looking at some of the most popular types of siding and which ones are best for your New Hampshire home.

Wood

Wood was once the primary choice for siding. Available in a range of options, from cedar to cypress, wood offers a beautiful natural-looking option. Furthermore, wood siding is generally easy to replace and has moderately priced installation costs.

However, wood siding also requires maintenance. Exposed to nature’s elements, without care, wood can warp and rot. With either occurrence, homeowners may face mold and mild growth as well as an unwanted pest infestation. If opting for wood siding, staying on top of the required maintenance is a must.

Brick

Timeless in appearance, superior in durability, and low on the maintenance requirement, brick is an excellent choice. However, brick homes are also some of the most expensive to install. That considered home insurance can also be cheaper because of the extreme durability and reliability of the material. So, it’s essential to weigh the immediate and long-term costs when it comes to brick siding.

Stone

If luxury is what you seek, stone siding is your answer. When opting for stone, be prepared for the highest of all installation costs. Precise cuts and layouts, often heavy pieces, and extensive labor add to the cost with stone. However, the result is unmatched in appearance and resistance to nearly every type of weather.

Vinyl

And then there is vinyl siding. Vinyl is, without question, the most popular type of siding in New Hampshire – and for a good reason! One of the most appealing features is the relatively low material and installation cost. However, the various colors, extended warranties, and easy maintenance also help.

One thing to note about vinyl siding is that extreme weather can cause damage. Vinyl can sometimes bend in extreme heat and crack with extreme cold. Although this isn’t ideal, replacing a single panel is much easier than replacing a brick or piece of stone (and cheaper)!
