We Find an Ideal Solution for You
Ideal Siding knows exactly what kinds of siding will be the perfect match for your Atlanta, Georgia home. Atlanta tends to have a fairly temperate climate year-round, but summers can be hot and muggy. Many days in summer are over 85 degrees, and there are typically at least a few days in the winter cold enough to have snow.
While North Georgia is not usually quite as humid as the south, it still tends to be wet. Atlanta isn’t nicknamed the “Rain City” for nothing. All of this moisture can be hard on any wall covering, including siding. Atlanta also tends to have a fair amount of smog, which can leave siding discolored if the wrong siding is chosen.
You need siding that can hold up to a lot of moisture and air pollution and protect your home on the hottest and coldest days. Needless to say, the siding that you choose ought to be stylish and fashionable to fit in with this beautiful city.

Popular Siding Styles
We offer hundreds of different siding types, materials, and colors, but some work better in Atlanta than others. Here are some of the options we recommend for this unique city.
Atlanta is a cosmopolitan city and a hub of culture in the south. While it has its roots in history, present-day Atlanta is often modern and forward-thinking.
If you have a contemporary home in Atlanta, panels may be the perfect siding option for you. Panels can be cut to any size and arranged in whichever orientation works well for your home.
Smooth panels are a superb option because they resist the buildup of dirt and grime that can result from smog and humidity. If you’d like more variety in the surface material, Cedar Mill texture is also a great choice.
Shingles and Shakes
If you have a historic Atlanta home or a recently-built home that looks historic, you don’t want to ruin the look with siding that appears too modern. On the other hand, you need siding that can hold up to the humidity and air pollution in Atlanta.
Siding shingles may be the perfect solution for you. While cedar shingles are traditional and still a great option, shingles made of vinyl or fiber cement are probably the best choice for your home.
These kinds of shingles look like natural wood, but they’re tough enough to handle this wet, warm climate. You can choose from a number of charming looks, including scalloped and staggered, both of which look amazing on historic homes.
Plank is a popular and versatile option that works well on a wide range of different home styles. It holds up well, can look quite modern or very classic depending on how it is styled and what material it’s made of, and offers a wide variety of options.
While you could choose traditional cedar planks, you’re likely to find that fiber cement or vinyl are better options for your Atlanta home, since these materials hold up very well even to a lot of humidity.
How Much Does Siding Cost?
We know that one significant factor that plays in when choosing a siding is the total cost. How much new siding for your house will cost depends on a number of factors, including but not limited to:
- Size of your home
- Style of siding you choose
- Material that siding is made of
- Condition of your old siding
Many people are surprised to learn that the condition of your current siding is an important element in pricing new siding. If the old siding has begun to degrade and damage has been done to the material underneath, this damage will need to be repaired before the new siding can be installed, which comes at an increased cost. If your current siding has degraded significantly, even the walls beneath the sheathing may be damaged, which could require substantial structural repair before new siding can be installed.
We’ll do our best to assess your current siding when we give you a quote so you’ll have a good sense of how much it will cost to repair the walls underneath your current siding. However, it is important to recognize that damage is not always evident until the current siding is removed.
Here’s a quick table of some siding materials and their cost per sq. ft.
|Material||Price per sq ft*|
|James Hardie (Fiber Cement)||Starts at $10.50|
|LP® Smartside® (Engineered Wood)||Starts at $9.50|
