The most common style of siding is for sure horizontal lap siding. When it is hard to choose between the tens of different styles, horizontal siding is the that might be your best match. The style is simple, it does not contain any curvy sidings, shakes, and shingles, etc. It is just plain planks of siding material installed horizontally.
Due to this exterior style being so common it is easier to find professionals that know the installation process. Also, due to the less complexity of the design, the exterior takes less installation time. Which means the installation cost may go down a little bit.
Just because the style is basic does not mean it has zero material options. On the contrary, horizontal exterior siding styles come with the most material varieties. You can choose between natural wood, vinyl, aluminum, fiber-cement HardiePlank®, etc. All of these materials are installed alike but offer unique features. For example, vinyl is low maintenance and more colour options, metal lasts longer but the siding needs repainting approximately every 5 years. Wood siding can make the exterior natural-looking, and Hardie exterior is the toughest.
