From protection to curb appeal, siding does a lot for your home. Lowe’s offers many types of house siding to choose from, so you’re sure to find what you need for your project. Whether you’re looking for inspiration for a siding update or are tasked with installation, use the breakdown below to make the right choice.
Types of Siding
Vinyl Siding: An affordable option, vinyl is durable and easy to maintain. With its ability to resist fading and weathering, vinyl repair is rarely necessary. Plus it comes in a variety of colors and textures, including options that resemble natural siding materials like the woodgrain in vinyl log siding.
Wood Siding: This option is available in shingles or panels and gives a home charming character. The upkeep of wood can be more intensive than vinyl. However, if that’s the look you’re after, consider engineered wood siding as an alternative. It’s easy to maintain while still giving your home that authentic wood look.
Fiber Cement Siding: Available in panels, shingles and planks, you can choose to have it pre-painted or paint it yourself once it’s installed. Cement fiber siding is typically a low-maintenance choice and another great alternative to wood siding.
Board and Batten Siding: Want to give your home’s exterior a farmhouse look? Then opt for board and batten siding, a style that alternates between narrow strips and wider pieces of material to create a layered look. This unique style can be installed with vinyl, wood, fiber cement or steel materials.
Stone Veneer: When stone and brick siding won’t fit the budget, stone veneer and brick veneer offer a stunning accent next to other siding types to create a picturesque mixed-material exterior. If you have a vision of a more traditional facade, a faux brick wall can offer the same classic look without the costly price tag of true brick.
Stucco Siding: If you’re going for the definitive look of Spanish or Mediterranean architecture, stucco is the way to go. Stucco has both pros and cons: It's highly fire-resistant, but it doesn’t have a great insulation factor and so isn’t recommended for cold climates.
Cedar Shake Siding: Known for its beautifully timeless aesthetic, cedar shake is a popular siding choice for many homeowners. It’s also resistant to decay and is an environmentally friendly, renewable product. While it does offer many benefits, it’s also more expensive. To maintain its appearance, stain or paint it every three to five years.
