Siding is a great way to add color and definition to your house, plus serve the important purpose of shielding your home from the forces of Mother Nature. And with technological advances in siding materials, longevity and durability have become key elements in their design. Check out the range of siding options for any budget.
Vinyl siding is the most popular siding choice in the United States due to its low cost, versatility and easy maintenance. Homeowners used to be wary of using vinyl out of fear that the materials would look cheap and more like plastic. With new technological advances in siding, vinyl is now able to be produced with detailed grains, textures, and colors, making it look almost identical to wood for a much lower cost.
Commonly used for bungalows, Cape Cod and cottage exteriors, wood siding offers a classic, rich look. Keep in mind that wood needs periodic maintenance to prevent weather damage and insect attacks. When properly maintained, wood siding can last for years to come. Franca Services is a proud Wood Cedar Siding Contractor and we offer Victorian-style siding, the Classic siding shingles, or even pre-assembled strip and panel siding.
Fiberglass siding is growing in popularity for its natural shine and low maintenance. Fiberglass panels don’t expand or contract, so they can be attached without overlapping, creating a seamless look with no stripes or visible panels. They are also extremely durable and less prone to dings and dents, making your home look overall higher quality and improving the resale value.
Offering the look of masonry, stucco or wood at a lower cost, fiber-cement siding is another popular choice among homeowners. Fiber-cement siding is low-maintenance, non-flammable and termite-resistant, which makes it ideal for homes in areas with variable weather conditions. Franca services offer James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding in a wide variety of colors and textures, so there is an option for every style.
Brick is on the higher end of siding in terms of cost, because of the work that goes into creating and installing it. Brick is commonly found on Colonial, Tudor and English cottage exteriors, especially homes that have been around for over 100 years. These days, brick siding is usually constructed as a veneer outside of a home’s wood frame, with mortar to hold the bricks together. For homes that want a timeless, classic look, brick siding is the way to go.
The natural beauty and durability of stone appeals to homeowners interested in a siding with texture and visual interest. Franca Services offers Versetta Stone panelized stone veneer, which offers the authentic beauty of traditional masonry with a modern installation method. The unique molding and color application precisely replicate natural stone and is much more lightweight and less expensive.
