New siding can significantly improve the appearance of most homes. When shopping for siding, homeowners are faced with making a decision about which type of siding they should buy. With a number of different choices including vinyl,fiber cement and cedar shakes, it is important to consider the pros and cons of each before making a decision. For the majority of homeowners, vinyl siding is the best choice.

In an article posted at OldHouseWeb entitled, Vinyl Siding Might Be Your Top Choice Even on an Old House, author Greg Keefer explains this siding type’s many advantages. Among them:

  • Vinyl siding is easy to install.
  • Vinyl siding is virtually maintenance free and comes in a number of different styles.
  • Vinyl siding is very durable and can last for many years.
  • Vinyl siding is more affordable than the traditional siding types you might find on an older house.

Keefer advises homeowners, particularly owners of older homes, that unless they are experienced in siding installation, they should turn to a professional to do the job. This is because it is imperative that the siding be installed flawlessly, which can be particularly difficult on architecturally varied homes.  You can learn more by reading the full article here.
