Whether building a brand new home from the ground up or updating an older home, homeowners often turn to professional Raleigh siding companies for help deciding which option is best for them. These companies know that people's tastes vary, which is why they ask customers a number of questions to get some idea about which siding choice is right for them. Homeowners will also want to think about the installation process and how long installation will take. They may also want to weigh the pros and cons of different materials.

Homeowners will probably factor the cost of the siding before anything else. Between labor and materials, installing new siding can range from around $5,000 to more than $10,000. Aluminum siding is usually the cheapest and most affordable. Vinyl, fiber cement and composition siding may cost a few thousand dollars more. Shingle siding is usually the most expensive because installing individual shingles costs more than installing larger pieces or panels of siding does. Wood siding can be more or less expensive than these other materials, but the cost depends on the type of wood and the style of the siding.

A newer product now available to homeowners is composition or composite siding, which appeals to those interested in reducing their impact on the environment. Made from sawdust and other products that would otherwise go to waste, composition siding comes in a number of colors and is as strong as wood.

In addition to the cost of materials, homeowners will want to factor in the labor costs. Some contractors use different methods, such as face nailing, to cut down on costs. It's usually best to consider a company known for working hard to bring the project in on budget without sacrificing the integrity or structure of the siding.

When selecting siding, homeowners also need to think about how the finished product will work. Shingle siding can sometimes seem overwhelming on a smaller home, which is why many use it as an accent in combination with another type of siding. Some may prefer the look of a larger type of siding like weatherboard. Similar in look and style to shingles, it consists of large panels that have a shingle design. Clapboard siding, which has an overlapping design, is another option.

With so many different choices and products, homeowners looking for siding will find it helpful to work with a professional when deciding what to use on their homes.
