Siding is the protective material attached to the exterior of a home or business. Equally as important as the roof, siding forms the first line of exterior defense for your building against uncontrollable outside elements such as hail, wind, and fire.
Different kinds of siding include:
- Thatch siding
- Wood siding
- Stone siding
- Plastic siding
- Imitation brick
- Insulated siding
- Metal siding
- Masonry siding
- Composite siding
Any wall can be sided. There is a wide, expanding variety of materials to side with, both natural and artificial. As well as various styles of joining the pieces such as board and batten and lap siding, also known as clapboard. These techniques of joinery are specifically designed to prevent water from entering walls.
The most common siding problems that commercial and residential building owners experience:
- Warping and buckling
- Moisture problems
- Noise when contracting & expanding
