Know Which Composite Siding Works for Your Home

When it comes to choosing the perfect siding, it’s important to know what materials you’re working with and how they can affect your home. At Wheaton Door & Window, we have several options from which you can choose, including two very prominent composite sidings. The two composites we carry are engineered wood and fiber cement. Each of these sidings possess a specific set of qualities that make them highly appealing to many homeowners and we’re here to break those down so you can make the right siding decision.

Enjoy the Beauty of Engineered Wood

Our engineered wood siding option is created using wood product that’s resultant of lumber manufacturing. The wood product is mixed with fillers and bound with heat. This engineered wood is then pressed into boards and bonded with a decorative layer that helps the panel simulate the look of real wood. The advantages of engineered wood over natural wood are that it requires far less maintenance, resists mold and mildew, and resists wood rot and pest infestation. It’s also sustainable as a renewable source and doesn’t require a great deal of wood material. The most appealing aspect of engineered wood is that it’s one of the best ways to get the beauty of natural wood for the exterior of your home.

High-Quality Durability with Fiber Cement

Fiber cement siding is one of the more durable siding types available and it brings a high-quality beauty to any home. It’s composed of sand, cement, and cellulose fibers, all of which are steam heated together and formed into planks. The result is a siding that is resistant to damage, rot, insects, and fire. Additionally, fiber cement requires little maintenance and is available in a beautiful variety of colors and textures that are designed to provide a gorgeous look to your home for decades. When it comes to durability and strength, fiber cement siding is unmatched by any other competing composite siding.

Elite Composite Siding Installation

At Wheaton Door & Window, we provide homeowners with high-quality sidings and elite siding installations. The installation process is just as important as the siding itself. An improper installation can lead to issues like warping, buckling, moisture infiltration, and even wood rot to your home’s exterior wall beneath the siding.
