BEST SIDING MATERIALS FOR YOUR HOUSE EXTERIOR
A house takes months to build and weeks to remodel before you have all the workers successfully complete their work and it can get expensive depending upon the kind of finishing materials you have used. The kind of exterior finishing you choose will determine the frequency of maintenance it will require and the expenses you will be incurring. To choose the best siding material for the exterior walls of your house, you first need to know:
- How frequently does it require maintenance
- Its durability

- It enhances the aesthetics of your house
From an architectural standpoint, the siding material used should not affect the architectural style of your house rather it should add more definition to it. If picked rightly, your house will stand out in your neighbourhood and fascinate others.
The uniqueness in the design and facade of a house will always be noticed by the by-passers. So, if you want your house to be accentuated in your street, we have compiled a list of siding materials that are popular and have high functionality.
- Stucco Siding
- Brick Siding
- Wood Clapboard Siding
- Stone Veneer Siding
- Vinyl Siding
Stucco siding for exterior walls tops our list because it is one of the most popular in Pakistan because of its high durability and ability to withstand climate variations. The process of installing stucco siding is more complex as compared to other options and requires skilled labour but if done properly, it can last a lifetime.
Stucco is a mixture of water, cement, lime and sand which can be applied directly on bricks as well as stoned surfaces. The classic look and long-lasting durability are achieved if the mixture has been carefully applied to the surface to minimize the risk of cracks. Its low maintenance, matt finishing and availability in different colours make it one of the best siding materials.
