6 Types of Siding From Orion Home Improvements LLC

Siding is an important part of your exterior. In addition to being the main contrasting element to your roof, it also provides texture and insulation to your exterior walls. If you are looking into getting your siding replaced, Orion Home Improvements LLC offers several options that will suit your strict requirements.

6 Types of Siding From Orion Home Improvements LLC

  1. Fiber Cement – Fiber cement siding is a combination of wood fiber, sand and cement. It is quickly becoming a popular siding option because of its superior durability and allows deep surface relief that allows realistic wood grain. We offer James Hardie® fiber cement siding, which comes in factory-applied colors that will never require scraping or repainting. And thanks to their HardieZone® System, the siding we install is specifically designed for the local climate.

  1. Vinyl – Vinyl is the most popular siding option, thanks to its durability, low cost and low-maintenance requirements. Vinyl siding is available in many profiles, from the traditional lap siding style, Dutch lap and vertical panels to specialty styles, such as shakes, fish scales and scalloped designs. In addition to being virtually maintenance-free like vinyl replacement windows, vinyl siding comes in factory-applied colors, eliminating the need to scrape and repaint.

  1. Aluminum – Aluminum siding may not be as popular as it once was, yet homeowners who want long-lasting and no-fuss siding choose aluminum. Its best quality is its resilience; it can be exposed to temperature extremes without cracking or splitting.

  1. Fiberglass – Fiberglass is an extremely stable material that allows realistic wood grain and, like vinyl siding, is virtually maintenance-free. Factory-applied colors are available, but it can also be painted if you prefer custom colors.

  1. Stucco – Stucco is typically seen in Mediterranean and Spanish-style architecture paired with tile roofing, but it also works for similarly-styled homes. Stucco is extremely energy-efficient and does not crack when exposed to temperature extremes.

  1. Wood – Few materials come close to the aesthetic benefit of real wood siding, which is why many homeowners are willing to put up with its high maintenance. If you wish to have wood siding on your home, choose specially-treated wood that resists the effects of daily exposure to heat and moisture.
