If you are looking for a unique exterior for your home, consider metal siding. Metal is long-lasting and resists wind better than most types of siding for your home. TEMA Roofing has extensive experience installing metal on exteriors and can help guide you through the entire process. Metal is perfect for historic homes, houses with a contemporary look and as accents around bay or bow windows.
What is Engineered Wood Siding?
Engineered wood siding is created to eliminate flaws, resist deterioration and cost less to install and maintain. The siding is created from wood strands coated with resin and compressed to create a board that is much stronger than natural wood. The boards are then coated with an overlay with a natural wood grain appearance to make it look more authentic.
Benefits of Engineered Wood Siding
Engineered wood siding is lighter than natural wood and includes features that make it easier to install. Many have self-aligning edges or “smart locks” that make the siding more manageable. It can be purchased pre-primed and ready to paint or already finished to look like natural wood siding. Flaws are hidden in engineered wood siding, unlike natural wood where knots and other blemishes can be seen. Because the siding is coated, it is not susceptible to rot and insects.

Engineered Wood Siding Compared to Wood Siding
Both engineered wood and natural wood give you the traditional clapboard look found on many older homes. Traditional wood is usually made of redwood or cedar as these types of wood are more resistant to decay. Engineered wood siding looks very similar to natural wood, but does not have the added maintenance requirements. Natural wood must be painted, stained or sealed to protect it from the elements, while engineered wood can be purchased in an already finished format that does not need painting or staining. Natural wood is not resistant to insect damage and is often more expensive to install than engineered wood.
