Your home needs to have well-built siding in order to fully protect its exteriors. Siding isn’t all built the same. While most homes have horizontal siding, there are some that have vertical siding. Are there any advantages between these two sidings? We’ve made a comparison so you can have a better idea on what to pick the next time you need yours replaced.
Horizontal siding is commonly found on nearly every modern home. It’s a safe choice as well due to the fact that it fits a lot of home design profiles, be it classic or contemporary. It also tends to be the least expensive type of siding on the market, making it very ideal for homeowners who are on a budget when they need to replace their home’s siding. It also helps protect your home from most weather elements, and it usually takes half the time to install this type of siding on a given home compared to vertical siding. But that doesn’t mean horizontal siding is any more beneficial than its vertical counterpart.
Commercial buildings usually utilize this type of siding. This siding style can make your home look visually taller. Depending on where you live, your local area may require your home to only install vertical siding. Otherwise, you can easily have this for your own home if you want to stand out in a neighborhood that mostly has horizontal siding.
