Some types of exterior siding include stucco siding, vinyl siding, wood siding, brick siding, fiber cement siding and stone veneer siding. Vinyl siding is popular in the United States due to its cheaper cost and its array of colors.
Wood siding is a great choice for bungalows and cottage homes, but it needs regular maintenance and is often attacked by rodents. Another popular siding is brick, which is usually chosen for Tudor, Colonial and English cottages. This choice tends to be more expensive, so some people turn to brick veneer siding. Brick veneer siding, however, requires a membrane to be installed to ensure that water cannot seep through. Stucco siding has a reasonable cost and is often inter-laid with other sidings to create a textured look.
