At Alderidge Construction, we know that, when it comes to building a custom home, every detail matters. That is why our expert team has put together some information exploring different types of siding materials so that you can make an informed decision about which siding material is right for your custom home.

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding is one of the most popular choices for homeowners. This material is known for its durability and relatively low maintenance. With a wide range of colours and styles to choose from, vinyl can mimic the appearance of many other materials; however, vinyl is not as sturdy as some other options and may not be the best choice if you are looking for a high-end finish.

Wood Siding

For those who prefer a classic and timeless look, wood siding is an excellent choice. Wood siding offers a natural aesthetic that is both elegant and cozy; however, this material requires regular maintenance to keep it looking its best. Painting or staining the wood can protect it from weather damage. Be prepared for a more hands-on approach if you choose wood siding for your custom home.

Wood siding also pairs nicely with various roofing materials. Here’s how to choose the best roofing material for your custom home.

Fibre Cement Siding

Fibre cement siding is a combination of wood fibres, cement, and sand. This siding material is known for its strength and durability. It is also an environmentally friendly option, as it utilizes recycled materials. Fibre cement siding can be painted to achieve a variety of looks, and it is resistant to rot and pests. This option is more costly than vinyl but less expensive than some other materials.

Stone or Brick Veneer

If you are looking for an upscale and stately appearance for your custom home, consider stone or brick veneer siding. These materials offer a luxurious look that can significantly increase the curb appeal of your home. Stone and brick are durable and they require very little maintenance; however, it is important to note that they are among the most expensive siding options. If you want to increase your curb appeal, stone is the right way to go.

Metal Siding

Metal siding, often made of aluminum or steel, is a contemporary option that is both sleek and durable. This material is often used for modern home designs due to its clean lines and minimalist appeal. Metal siding is also low maintenance and can be a good choice if you are looking for a more industrial or modern aesthetic for your custom home.
