The perfect siding can enhance the structural beauty of any home. If a roof repair or roof replacement is underway, you might also want to consider complementing it with new siding to add more value to your property. Selecting a siding might be confusing but the end result will surely brighten up your home.
There are a lot of options to choose from but wood will always be popular for being the most attractive and sustainable. However, this type of material needs to be protected from the elements by finishing it with either paint or a stain. Picking the finishing that works for you will mostly depend on the current condition of the wood and your preference for appearance and care.
Here’s some advice from Home Pro Exteriors, professional deck builder and siding installer.
Using paint over wood siding covers the wood grain entirely, but does not seep into the wood’s pores. The thick coating helps hide blemishes and defects, especially if the siding has weathered over time. This option is great for less-expensive wood.
Unlike paint, the natural texture of the wood is highlighted because stains penetrate into the pores of the wood. You can choose the level of transparency or opaqueness to suit what you want to achieve. Solid stains have more concentrated pigments that blur the grain and the original color. On the other hand, semi-transparent stains complement the wood grain.
