The humidity, heat, and rain showers of Atlanta are often tough on siding. If you want siding that will stand the test of time and avoid weather damage, you need to pick materials that are up to the challenge. When the time comes, here are a few of the best siding options for you to consider:
Fiber cement siding
Fiber cement siding is one of the best choices for all-weather protection. Fiber cement boards come in many different shapes and colors, so you are not limited in style of design choices. Additionally, fiber cement is highly fire resistant, rarely suffers from moisture or mildew problems and lasts for decades while needing only intermittent washing.
Ask siding professionals what brand of fiber cement siding they prefer to use, and how quickly the project can be finished. Fiber cement is heavier and harder than other types of siding and may need extra time to properly install.
Vinyl siding is made from tough plastics that come in many different shades and styles. Because vinyl is lightweight and easy to produce, it is probably the cheapest material on the list, so if you want to save money this is probably the best siding for you. Also, vinyl has no problem weathering the worst of Atlanta's humidity and rain. Rot and mildew are very rarely problems, since plastic is naturally resistant to those types of decay.
Metal siding is typically coated steel or aluminum panels. Metal is one of the best siding materials due to its durability and easy-to-clean surface. It can deal with all types of weather and you don't need to worry about insect damage or rot.
