In Middle Tennessee, there are a number of different architectural styles. Homeowners can change the look of their homes based on the type of siding they choose, which has a major impact on its aesthetic. What are some of the common sidings you see in architecture around Middle Tennessee?
Vinyl, made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), is among the most popular options people choose for siding on their homes. It’s a very cost-effective option. In addition to its ease on the wallet, it’s versatile and easy to maintain. With vinyl siding, you’ll be able to achieve a look that will be right for your home.
Wood siding is a greater investment but has longevity when properly cared for. Not to mention it’s a great look for cottages and bungalow style homes. Of course, there are more expenses when it comes to wood sidings, such as stains, paint, or both. When you choose wood siding, you have a number of different options, such as clapboard, shingles, and shakes (differentiated by their shapes, sizes, and widths).
This siding option is increasingly popular due to its many benefits. It’s arguably one of the most durable materials for siding and stands up well to wind and rain — something very important in Middle Tennessee’s climate where severe thunderstorms and tornadoes occur. In addition to doing well in storms, fiber-cement is also flame and termite resistant. The look of fiber-cement can mimic that of stucco and wood.
Stone and Brick
Stone and brick sidings are very durable, and upon installation, should last the lifespan of a home. They are often installed as a veneer that is attached to the exterior frame of a home. Both stone and brick sidings are penetrable by water so a water repellant will be applied in between a home’s frame and the brick or stone exterior.
