What is Siding and What Does It Do for Your Home's Roof?

Oct 6

Your home's roof acts as the first line defense against pests and weather. Your siding provides the necessary support for your roof. The siding protects the wall's surface and acts as insulation between your exterior and interior walls. This helps to prevent drafts from entering your home. There are many materials that can be used to cover walls, including vinyl, aluminum and wood.


Vinyl is one of the most sought-after exterior wall covering options due to its affordability. This material doesn't have to compromise on durability or aesthetic appeal as compared with other materials. Vinyl comes in many styles and colors that will match any home. This material can be purchased at most hardware stores. They also sell vinyl accessories such trimming and flashing for your project.


Aluminum siding has a modern look and is excellent at transferring heat. This makes it great for areas with cold winters. Because of its thermal properties, aluminum will keep your home warmer than the outside. You should choose the right paint to protect your aluminum siding from harsh weather conditions.


Wood is the traditional siding material. It can be stained and painted in any color you choose. Wood can only last for two years without being maintained properly. You may need to replace or repair damaged boards, repaint them, and/or replace them regularly. Wooden siding is more expensive than vinyl siding because it requires more space between your walls and the outside of your home. It is important to use quality lumber for this project. Cheap boards can warp, crack, or split.


Brick is a very heavy material. You will need to add additional framing support, such as steel, when you install it on your home's exterior walls. Brick siding lasts longer than any other material, such as vinyl, aluminum or wood. This is a great investment in style and durability. Brick can insulate your home's interior, saving you money each year on heating. Make sure that you only use high-quality bricks that are structurally sound. Low-quality bricks can be more fragile than the best and are susceptible to being damaged by fire, hail, ice or other elements.

Every material has its benefits and drawbacks. However, it's up to the homeowner to make the final decision. So your home will look great for many years to come, make sure the siding you choose lasts at most 20 years.

You have many advantages when you install durable siding to your house. These include:

  • Siding is integral to your home's structure and provides protection against weather damage. It protects you and your property in many different ways. It not only keeps out water but leaves and sap as well from being blown away by rain or wind. If you don't have good quality vinyl siding, these substances can cause serious damage to your home exterior.
