If you are looking for something stylish, wood siding will give your home a unique character. It is also considered to be the most traditional types of siding for homes. While it may be the naturalistic appearance that resonates with homeowners, it can also be the varied styles to choose from.
Wood siding types include Board and Batten, Shingles (or Shakes), Clapboards, Vertical Boards, and Logs. Regardless of your style choice, there is almost nothing better than a well-maintained wood siding to complement the rest of a home’s attributes.
Wood siding is eco-friendly, durable, and it can be painted to showcase your desired appearance. One thing to note, however, is that the various wood siding types will require maintenance. Without keeping an eye on things, you may experience rot, termites, or even woodpeckers banging holes into your home. This is just the nature of using 100% real wood. It is very rewarding overall if you don’t mind the moderate maintenance it demands.
It is also worth noting that wood siding isn’t cheap. In fact, it is one of the more expensive types of siding. However, you could consider it as an investment. It is likely the value of your home will be higher overall than if you use vinyl siding. A well-maintained home with wood siding can sometimes command a higher price in the long run, and definitely worth considering.
