Your home’s siding serves several important purposes. It creates the overall look of your home in combination with your roof. It also shields your home from moisture and extreme temperatures, which is why well-insulated siding can mean the difference in comfort and protection. Well-constructed siding functions to protect your home from other damaging elements as well including insects, small animals like rodents, and mold.

Great siding will also eliminate the need to repaint because it won’t chip or fade. In this blog entry, our siding contractors at Anderson Exteriors in Ramsey talk about the siding options we offer and offer advice for choosing the right one for your home.
Making the Best Siding Choice
With all of the siding innovations of the past century, it can be difficult to know which siding solution is the best choice for your home. The right siding decision for you will depend on your goals for your siding. Our professional siding contractors can work with you to help you make the best choice for your home.
We offer three main styles of siding at Anderson Exteriors:
1. Vinyl Siding
Vinyl siding is one of the longest-lasting and most durable siding options available. It can be expected to last as long as four decades with regular maintenance. New vinyl siding is combined with an added layer of insulation like Insultex.
We’re proud to offer Mastic vinyl siding at Anderson Exteriors. Mastic is one of the most durable and beautiful siding manufacturers in the industry, offering complete resistance to termites and low maintenance you’ll love. It’s also available in a wide range of colors and styles, making it a perfect match for any home.
2. Engineered Wood Siding
If the timeless beauty of wood is your dream siding, consider engineered wood siding from LP SmartSide. Combining the visual appeal of classic wood and the low maintenance of pre-finished engineered siding, you’ll get the authentic look of wood with higher durability. While natural wood can make a welcome target for termites and other insects and harbor moisture that leads to mold and mildew, LP SmartSIde is treated to resist both.
3. Steel Siding
If you’re looking for a higher level of protection, consider a siding solution that harnesses the strength of steel. With the power to resist strong storms, hail, and damage, steel will stand up for many decades. It’s also available in a surprising selection of colors and styles.
