Below, you will find some popular options as well as an explanation as to the advantages of each.
While you may be thinking otherwise, people do, in fact, still get stucco siding. Due to the fact that stucco has shifted quite a ways away from the olden days of basic white, grimy old stucco, it has actually become a popular choice again! These days, you’ll find you are more than able to get stucco installed in a wide array of textures and colors. The benefits of stucco siding include its ability to repel moisture and last up to 80 years with very little maintenance. This can be a fantastic option for people who are looking for a “cool” look with low maintenance and a unique take on the outdated stucco of the ‘ol days.
Stone Veneer Siding
Stone veneer is manufactured stone siding that looks like the real thing but without the hefty price tag. Stone veneer is often used as an accent to other types of siding. It can be quickly installed as a half wall or one wall for some dynamic looks to an otherwise mundane home with one kind of siding. While it may not come with the same durability as the real stone, stone veneer siding can still work great as both a full siding installation and a partial one. Stone veneer can also work on home interiors if you want a woodsy rustic aesthetic in a basement wall with a fireplace. Stone veneer more than allows homeowners to get a little creative with their homes.
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding is quite common and is actually manufactured using many of the same materials as stone veneer: Portland cement, sand, and cellulose. It comes in many different colors and can even be manufactured to imitate real wood. Some of the biggest benefits of fiber cement siding are that it won’t rot, it won’t fade from the sun’s UV rays, and it’s impervious to those pesky termites or other insects that can penetrate and affect real wood siding. Plus, if you need a refresh over time, it can be easily refinished or painted over. That’s about the only maintenance required to keep fiber cement siding in tip-top shape.

Brick and Veneer Siding
Brick, beautiful brick. Did you know that a brick house can actually cool a home better and faster than its framed and siding counterparts? It’s an amazing insulator and can drastically improve a home’s energy efficiency. Not only that, but the aesthetic of a brick or brick veneer house is timeless as can be. It will always be in style and always have that sense of longevity and strength. The one downfall of a brick house is that the mortar, as with any mortared material, may deteriorate over time. But it will almost always be at the joint, and it’s nothing a mason can’t mortar and fix in no time. On the other hand, brick veneer is a much less costly material but gives the same aesthetic as the real thing. But similar to stone veneer, it can never truly meet the expectations of real brick but can work great as an accent to other types of siding.
