If you are currently looking for new siding for your Georgia home, you surely want to make sure that the material you use is suitable for your building. Here are some ideas from Wages Goldstar Roofing to help you make the best choice:
- Consider the climate – the humid subtropical climate in Georgia comes with moderate to heavy precipitation, high heat and occasional hurricanes. These climate features mean that the most suitable materials for your Georgia home are the ones that are resistant to excessive moisture, high heat and impact, two of the best options being metal and fiber cement;
- Consider resistance to pests – both metal and fiber cement are impervious to pests, including termites;
- Consider the appearance – the material’s suitability in terms of appearance is also essential. Both metal and fiber cement come in many different colors, textures and style and they can both be repainted whenever you need it or feel like it;
- Pricing – while fiber cement is a relatively new siding material that is still quite costly, metal siding is very affordable.
The range of siding materials available in Georgia is surely much wider and it includes affordable and versatile vinyl as well as sensitive and spectacular natural wood. However, we found that metal and fiber cement are the two best options, materials that meet all the requirements one can possibly have when evaluating siding options.
