How do you choose the right siding for your Kansas City home? Well, it depends on what your home needs. Maybe you’re looking for added insulation or maybe you need to boost your home’s curb appeal. Maybe you need something that can do both. But you’ll need to know your home siding options first, and how each one can meet the needs of your home.
Vinyl siding is a favorite option for many homeowners for a few reasons. First, it’s one of the more affordable options on the market. However, you don’t want to just buy the cheapest vinyl siding available. Cheap vinyl often means cheap quality and the vinyl tends to warp or fade. High quality vinyl siding from brands like Mastic, however, can be an excellent choice. In addition to its affordability, high quality vinyl is durable and requires little maintenance. It’s easy to clean and never needs to be painted. It can look great, too, sometimes even imitating wood, but without the tendency to rot or swell.
Fiber Cement Siding
Another excellent option, especially for energy performance, is fiber cement siding. Fiber cement siding often looks just like wood to the untrained eye. However, this durable material lacks all the usual drawbacks of wood: warping, swelling, rotting, peeling, etc. It’s five times thicker than vinyl, which helps it resist damage from storms or other accidents, and it’s a low maintenance product. The siding and underlying house wrap also strengthen the insulating value of your home resulting in lower energy bills.
We carry James Hardie fiber cement siding, which has excellent rich color and wood imitation, and it’s been said to have the greatest ROI for 8 years running, for those who want to boost their home value.
Stucco & Stone Siding
If you’re looking for a smooth, seamless siding, stucco is the way to go. At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., Inc. we use acrylic stucco siding for its long lasting color, crack resistance, and UV resistance. It’s very easy to clean because of its flat, smooth surface and it insulates your home heavily. Plus, it’s hard to beat in terms of sleek style.
For a more classic sort of style, there’s also stone siding. Stone siding can maximize your curb appeal with a stately, natural look. There are 25 patterns to choose from and over 200 colors with CenturionⓇ stone siding, and we’re happy to offer any of them for your home.
