Choosing Your Shed Siding
Choosing your shed siding is like choosing your outfit. Really. So what type of shed siding is best? Not unlike deciding what to wear, style is often a factor when selecting siding for your new wooden shed.
When it comes to shed siding, visual appeal is the first thing people tend to consider, followed by maintenance. While Sheds USA doesn’t sell clothing, it does offer four types of siding.
In this two-part series, we’ll first look at vinyl siding and Smart Siding:
Vinyl siding is Sheds USA’s best seller because it holds its value and – bonus – it looks good. Six colors are available, with white trim, and the vinyl clapboard is applied over ½-inch plywood. The doors, fascias, soffits, shutters and flower boxes all are made of a material called Perma-Trim. That, too, is maintenance free. Simply put, vinyl siding lasts a lifetime and requires virtually no upkeep so this isn’t just a solution – it’s a permanent one.
Our second most popular siding is crafted with pre-primed, richly textured, engineered wood and is designed specifically to withstand the harshest elements. Smart Siding is durable, low-maintenance, and economical. It’s primed at the factory and comes to you ready for a fresh coat of outdoor latex paint.
You’ll end up choosing what you feel looks best in the designated space, what you can afford, and how much maintenance – minimal as it will be regardless of siding type – you want to deal with.
