30 Dec How Long Does Siding Last? And A Better Alternative
When looking to build a home or replace your current siding, it is essential to pay attention to how long the siding material you are choosing lasts. You need to ask yourself, “how long does siding last?” Siding for your home can make or break the look, style, and function of your home. It can save you thousands of dollars in maintenance or have you constantly trying to keep up with the cost of repairing, fixing, and maintaining your siding. What you choose will determine the amount you maintain your home and how frequently you will need to update it.
There are so many siding materials out there it can be hard to know which one is right for you. Depending on the climate you live in and how harsh the weather can be, it can be a big determining factor in what siding material you choose. There is wood siding, vinyl siding, log siding, aluminum siding, concrete siding, and more. Each of these has a lifespan that can dramatically affect the value and longevity of your home. When choosing a siding, make sure you choose the one that will last you generations – not years.
How Long Does Siding Last?
Siding protects your home from the elements and can take a pretty intense beating from the sun, wind, hail, rain, and more. Choosing a siding that can withstand the elements while maintaining its durability and look can cost more upfront, but save you thousands in replacement siding down the road.
With the different siding materials, it is important to know how long they last in order to determine what works best for you and your home. According to Siding Authority, vinyl siding is low maintenance but only lasts for 20-40 years. Vinyl siding can lose its visual appeal after two or three decades due to being exposed to harsh elements over the years. Wood siding, on the other hand, is heavy on maintenance work and also only lasts 15-40 years. Since wood is a natural element, you have to constantly be inspecting for cracks, mold, bug infestations, and more. Aluminum siding lasts longer than both of these materials, going on for 30-50 years with medium maintenance. The aluminum is easy to work with, but the paint on top will have to be redone every 15 years due to it not being able to withstand the weather.
So, how do you determine which siding to use knowing you will need to completely replace it every 15-50 years? You find an alternative that lasts generations with little to no maintenance. Lucky for you, we have the perfect solution – concrete log siding.
