Siding is a coating for the exterior walls of homes and buildings. Siding can be made of wood, metal, vinyl, or other materials. Shingles are most common for residential use, while commercial builders more often use slates.
Siding is an important part of any home because it protects from weather elements such as rain, snow, and wind which can cause damage to your roof, shingles, or brickwork. It also protects against sun damage which can fade your paint job if not protected with UV-resistant coatings. And in some cases, it's required by law to have adequate protection on the outside of your home so that you don't look tacky in front of neighbors!
What Many People Don't Know
For many years, there has been a common belief that siding is not an important part of the exterior design of your home. This misconception may have come from shingles typically used for residential homes, and slates are more often seen on commercial siding on buildings. But this couldn't be farther from the truth!
Indeed, siding can increase property value by up to 16%. It also protects against sun damage which can fade paint jobs if left unprotected with UV-resistant coatings. It doesn't matter if you choose shingles or slates. Both provide excellent protection for your home's exterior. Besides, It might give your home the edge it needs to stand out in a crowd!
