Is Composite Cladding the Right Siding Material for My Home?

Siding replacement is an exciting opportunity to enhance your home with beautiful curb appeal and long-lasting durability. However, picking a new siding can also be overwhelming. After all, there are now way more siding materials, products, and brands available to choose from than during your last siding installation a few decades ago. 

Composite cladding is one of the newer (and more popular) siding options you’ll likely want to consider before your upcoming replacement. Keep reading to learn more about composite cladding for your siding replacement—including its notable benefits for homeowners in Pennsylvania and New Jersey! 

What Is Composite Cladding?

Composite cladding (or composite siding) is a durable, modern, and innovative engineered alternative to natural wood siding.

Composite cladding is created when glass or wood fibers are bonded together with synthetic resins or under heat and pressure in a controlled environment. The result is a siding board (or another siding material, like trim) that mimics the appearance of natural wood but is strong, durable, and weather resistant.

Outstanding Reasons Homeowners Love Composite Cladding

Composite cladding is a sturdy, eye-catching material that is perfect for replacement siding—but don’t just take our word for it. These are some of the top reasons homeowners appreciate composite siding:

Effortless Upkeep

Unlike wood boards that require regular sanding, painting, and sealing, you’ll only need to clean your composite siding boards with gentle soap and water once or twice a year. Plus, when you install Alside ASCEND Composite Cladding from Remodeling Concepts, you’ll enjoy an industry-leading lifetime warranty to guarantee decades of minimal maintenance.

Easy Installation

Some siding materials are bulky, heavy and require specialized installation with a large crew—but not composite siding. This lightweight material is painless to handle and doesn’t require sealing, touch-up painting, sanding, or caulking, which will reduce the amount of money you’ll spend on labor and installation.

Lasting Durability

Composite cladding can stand up to the elements, pests, and moisture and will not deteriorate from rotting, warping, shrinking, swelling, or fading. Many composite siding products, like Alside ASCEND Composite Cladding, also offer superior wind and fire resistance to provide your home with indisputable protection in all situations.

Striking Appearance

When you install composite cladding, you won’t have to sacrifice beauty for durability. These engineered boards offer an authentic woodgrain appearance, creating a high-end aesthetic that will enable your home to “pop” from the curb. Plus, with dozens of colors to choose from, you’ll be able to perfectly match your home’s aesthetic with a trendy or timeless shade.

Maximum Efficiency

Wood is an efficient siding material when first installed, but after years of wear and tear, it quickly loses its ability to block out uncomfortable drafts and unwanted sounds. You’ll never have this problem with composite siding. These boards are thick, strong, and won’t expand or contract in fluctuating temperatures—leading to reliable, lasting insulation.

Explore the Numerous Benefits of Composite Cladding Installation with Remodeling Concepts

Composite cladding is an excellent choice for homeowners keen on the classic appearance of wood siding but who’d rather skip out on the high-maintenance upkeep and short-lived lifespan of natural wood. If that sounds like you, composite cladding might be the siding material you’ve been searching for!
