How to Choose the Right Siding

Homeowners today have many different options for siding their homes.  Stucco, stone, brick, wood, engineered wood, paint, metal, brick/stone veneers, vinyl and fiber cement are popular choices.  At Packaging Incorporated, we offer a full line of fasteners and expertise on the right method to fasten siding and underlayment to houses and commercial buildings.  We carry a complete line of nails (hot dip galvanized, stainless steel), pins, staples and screws in industry leading brands such as Paslode, Hitachi, Fasco, Simpson, Grabber  and our very own Hammerstrike Fasteners®.

When choosing siding options, these 5 factors should be considered before making that important decision for your home.

Water Resistance:
Water-resistant siding provides longer life spans.

Cost of Installation and Material:
Costs vary widely depending on the type and ease of installation.

Energy Efficiency:
Check the R-value rating for energy savings and understand what will be needed as far as insulation beneath the siding.

Aesthetics (Curb appeal):
Siding needs to be visually pleasing.

Durability:
How does it stand up to everyday wear and tear?  How does your climate affect the siding?  Heat, humidity, moisture, wind, cold, ice, snow?
