There was a day and age when traditional wood siding was a popular choice among homeowners. And while it’s still an option in 2021, there are much better choices including vinyl and fiber cement.
Here are some reasons why traditional wood siding continues to slide in popularity:
• Too much maintenance: Even if you’re okay with the idea of maintaining your siding, you really need to stay on top of things if you want your wood to remain in good condition.
• Wears quickly in bad weather: Bad weather — such as rain, snow, and ice — will take its toll on wood siding. This is particularly true if you don’t stay current with maintenance.
• Attracts pests: From carpenter bees and ants to birds, traditional wood siding attracts pests. And once again, this is even more common if you slack on maintenance, such as staining or painting your siding as required.
If your home is covered in wood siding, look into the benefits of vinyl and fiber cement. There’s a good chance that you’ll soon realize the benefits of making a change.
