Your siding protects your home against all kinds of weather and wildlife. It can also play a significant role in the appearance of your home. Beautiful siding is central to your home’s curb appeal, but deciding which siding to choose can be a difficult and confusing decision.


At Anderson Exteriors in Ramsey, our professional siding experts understand the importance of choosing the right siding and are here to help. We’ve put together this handy guide to choosing the right siding for your home:


Classic Beauty of Wood Siding Redefined

For many homeowners, wood siding offers a classic and timeless appeal. Wood feels natural and authentic, but wood siding can come with plenty of drawbacks. It is the favorite snack of many insects, particularly the termite. Wasps, beetles, and ants are also attracted to wood siding.


Wood siding can harbor moisture and become a haven for fungus and mold. LP SmartSide Trim and Siding uses a unique manufacturing process to offer treated engineered wood siding that is resistant to both fungal decay and insects. SmartSide offers gorgeous wood cladding available in cedar grain or with a smooth finish to complement the look of any home.

Low Maintenance, High Curb Appeal

For some homeowners and builders, the low maintenance appeal of vinyl siding makes it a perfect solution. It is completely resistant to termites and rot and will look sharp for many years to come. Vinyl also comes in just about any color or style you can dream up to match the design of your home or neighborhood.


Mastic Home Exteriors offers beautiful vinyl siding in a wide variety of styles. These products are backed with a lifetime warranty, demonstrating the manufacturer’s commitment to the product.


Siding Style and Design

Once you’ve determined if you want to go with vinyl or wood siding, you will need to settle on a style and design for your home. Lap siding, also known as clapboard or horizontal siding, is one of the most common choices for modern homes. These planks are typically beveled, which means they’re slightly thicker at the bottom than the top. Paneled siding offers beautiful panels for a classic wood look. For a charming board and batten look, choose vertical siding. For homes with a historic architectural style, you might consider using shakes and shingles.
