Some popular materials include wood, vinyl, fiber cement, aluminum, stucco and stone/brick veneer. Siding can be be installed horizontally, vertically or diagonally and comes in all different textures, sizes and colors.

Vinyl siding is tough and comes in a variation of colors and textures. Since the color is throughout the material, nicks and scratches don't show up.

Metal siding is usually associated with retro and modern style type buildings. Installing metal siding for your home can give it a unique appeal if done properly. The most common types of materials are aluminum and steel siding.

Composite siding is a mixture of wood fibers, sand, and cement. It is built to mimic natural wood siding, with less hassle of maintenance, insects, and cost.
