Types of Siding

Vinyl Siding

Description: Vinyl siding is made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and is one of the most popular siding materials due to its durability, low maintenance, and wide range of colors and styles.

Benefits: It is resistant to weathering, moisture, and pests. It doesn’t need painting, as the color is integrated into the material.

Fiber Cement Siding

Description: This siding is a composite material made of cement, sand, and cellulose fibers. It often mimics the appearance of wood, brick, or stone.

Benefits: Fiber cement siding is known for its durability, fire resistance, and resistance to termites and rot. It requires minimal maintenance and can be painted to suit aesthetic preferences.

Wood Siding

Description: Wood siding offers a classic and natural look, commonly made from cedar, redwood, pine, or spruce. It can be installed in various styles, including shingles, clapboards, and vertical panels.

Benefits: It provides excellent insulation and is eco-friendly. However, it requires more maintenance than most other types of siding, including regular painting or staining to prevent decay.

Metal Siding

Description: Typically made from steel or aluminum, metal siding is a durable material that suits modern architectural styles.

Benefits: Metal siding is fire-resistant, pest-resistant, and can handle extreme weather conditions. It’s also recyclable, adding an eco-friendly advantage.

Types of Rainscreens

Vented Rainscreen

Description: This system includes a vented cavity that allows for continuous airflow. The ventilation helps to dry out any moisture that gets behind the panels, preventing damage to the wall assembly.

Benefits: Enhances moisture evaporation and improves the thermal efficiency of buildings.

Drained and Back-Ventilated Rainscreen

Description: This system involves an air gap behind the cladding that allows water to drain away and air to circulate, effectively dealing with water penetration by drainage and evaporation.

Benefits: It prevents water damage and mold growth, making it ideal for areas with high rainfall.

Pressure-Equalized Rainscreen

Description: This advanced system is designed to equalize the air pressure on both sides of the cladding to prevent water from being driven into the wall assembly.

Benefits: It effectively manages water infiltration in high-rise buildings and structures exposed to severe weather conditions.
