5 Reasons to Choose Composite Siding and Trim

Siding

The exterior of your home is the first thing people see. While traditionally wood has been used for siding, composite materials have gained a lot of popularity in recent years – and for good reason!

Maintenance
Wood siding looks great when first installed, but it takes a lot of work to keep it like that. Typically, it needs to be repainted or stained every 3-5 years. That means either a lot of work, or having to hire someone else to do it for you.

Durability
Composite holds up well in the elements like rain and harsh winters, like we had this year. And unlike wood, it is termite and fire resistant.

Curb Appeal
No matter what your home’s style, there is a composite to match. It comes in a wide variety of colors and textures. Over time, stained wood can change color and painted wood starts to peel unevenly. Composites keep a uniform look longer.

Cost
For most homeowners, choosing composite siding and trim is less expensive. Natural wood can be very pricey and needs to be replaced more often. Factor in the costs of upkeep, and it adds up quickly.

Eco-Friendly
The method of harvesting wood, transporting it long distances and processing it takes an environmental toll. Composites are made from existing materials, such as sawdust and shredded wood scraps. They also do not require stain or paint.
