Photo Guide to Exterior Siding Options

Find the right choice for your home.

The right siding does a lot for your home. It sets the tone for your home’s overall style, defines your curb appeal, and its infrastructure can protect you and your family from the elements. The following are few exterior siding options you may consider, along with a glimpse into the style and function they'll lend to your home. 

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding is the most popular home siding option for a reason. It holds up beautifully against Wisconsin wind, hail, snow, sleet, ice, etc. The upkeep for vinyl siding is as easy as it gets: just clean it once a year to keep it looking like new. And because it’s an incredibly cost-efficient option that comes in practically every color and texture imaginable, you can customize your home’s look to suit your taste.

Fiber Cement

Fiber cement siding is available in styles that look much like clapboard, wood lap, or vertical panel siding – but it's more cost-efficient and lasts much longer than any of those options. We install LP siding that comes with a 25-year warrantee, so you won't have to worry about the longevity of your new siding. Mix and match coordinating color tones, or complement your fiber cement with stone accents.

Stone siding offers timeless, eye-catching curb appeal that works well on its own or as an accent alongside another siding choice, like vinyl. It’s strong and durable enough to withstand the harsh Wisconsin elements, and gives your home a timeless, stately look. Pull accent shades from your natural stone and plant complementary flowers and shrubs nearby.


Cedar offers a unique aesthetic and lasts the longest of all exterior wood options. It's dense and stable enough to wear well, though eventually some upkeep will be necessary. Cedar siding is one of the more expensive siding options on the market due to high raw material costs, as well as the specialized techniques and materials required for installation.
