While traditional home siding as we know it has been around for less than 80 years, it has become the standard for new homes and refurbishment projects. For good measure too, the material is more cost effective than some alternatives, it is low maintenance, and easy to clean. In Albany & Upstate, New York much considerations goes into building projects as the materials need to account for the harsh weather. At Bennett Contracting, we recommend you take the following into considerations when looking for siding for your home.
Wood Siding– While wood siding provides a great looking aesthetic, you should consider how long it will last for. Wood siding can be more expensive than vinyl siding, and not last as long. If pricing is a big consideration for you, wood siding might not be the way to go.
Vinyl Siding- Vinyl is a popular choice for siding materials in Albany & Upstate New York. The material is low maintenance and cheaper to install compared to some other siding materials such as wood. The material is also water-resistant, which is good for wet Winters.
Aluminum Siding- Aluminum siding is not that often thought about when it comes to siding opportunities in the North East. However, if durability is what you’re looking for, aluminum siding is the answer. Extreme heat and cold will not affect it. However, aluminum siding is susceptible to dents and other damage.
