It will regulate the temperature inside your home just like a roof. You can choose from a variety of siding materials. They can either be artificial or natural with different benefits and drawbacks. Siding is not required for walls made of masonry, but walls that are internally framed will require it.

The siding will be made from weather-resistant material, which is smaller than the wall to be covered. This allows for the material to expand and contract with temperature and humidity changes. There are many ways to join pieces, including board and batten (or lap siding), and clapboard (or building up). Vinyl is the most commonly used material. It can last between 20-40 years. Vinyl siding is more durable than other materials, and it can be reduced in energy consumption. Contact our team at McIntyre Construction to learn more about siding options we offer.
