Thinking about replacing your siding in the near future? We bet that you have a ton of questions that need to be answered. While it’s impossible for us to know exactly what’s on your mind, we’ve taken the liberty of answering some of the most common questions we get about siding.
How Can You Tell You Need New Siding?
Why not start with the obvious question: do you even need new siding? There are several signs that you need new siding, which include:
- Gaps in between panels
- Chips, cracks and holes in panels
- Insect damage
- Warped or bent panels
You can also look out for these common signs of hail and storm damage.
Which Siding Material Is The Best?
“Best” is a word that we hear a lot when it comes to siding, but it’s a completely subjective term that is hard to pin down. To be clear: any siding material you choose will adequately protect your home. Which siding material is “best” mostly comes down to your budget and personal style.
There are many siding options to choose from. These include:
- Fiber Cement

Which Color/s Should I Choose?
Choosing a siding color may sound like one of the more fun aspects of the process, but it can turn out to be one of the hardest decisions for homeowners to make. Once people find out how many colors there are to choose from — materials like vinyl and metal come in many colors and materials like wood and brick can be painted virtually any color — they soon realize that they don’t know the first thing about exterior design.
Your options for choosing a color are plentiful, and we are always happy to lend our expertise and advice to help you find something that looks amazing on your house.
