Not only is siding a functional way to protect your home, but it allows you the opportunity to add interest and curb appeal. With so many styles, finishes, and colors available, it can be challenging to know where to begin. To make it easy, we’ve rounded up our top 3 picks for durable and beautiful siding.


Vinyl siding is a universally reliable type of siding, especially for homes in the midwest. It is designed to withstand high heat, extreme sun, pounding hail, and forceful winds while still offering exceptional protection for everyday dents and dings. This level of durability promises long-lasting protection for your home for upwards of 20 years. Vinyl siding is available in a large range of colors and styles, and is a cost-effective option for many homeowners.

Engineered Wood

Engineered wood siding, like LP® SmartSide®, is perfect for the homeowner who wants the look and feel of solid wood siding, without the high price tag. More durable than traditional wood siding, engineered wood offers superior protection against hail, wind, moisture, fungal decay, and termites. Engineered wood siding comes in a wide variety of colors and styles, and is even available in a smooth, modern finish if that’s more your style.

Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber cement siding, like James Hardie fiber cement siding, is a composite material made from cement and cellulose fibers that are compressed and formed into panels. This option offers the highest level of durability available, and can last up to 50 years. James Hardie fiber cement siding is moisture and rot resistant; non-combustible; pest resistant; weather resistant; and fade, chip, and peel resistant. Their baked-on ColorPlus® Technology has greater resistance to fading, chipping, and cracking – maintaining the appearance of your home for decades without the need for paint.
