Variety of Siding Materials and Styles
At Ideal Siding® Boston, we offer an extensive selection of siding materials and styles to suit your preferences, budget, and architectural design. Here are just some of the options you can choose from:
- Vinyl siding: Affordable and low-maintenance vinyl siding is a popular choice for its durability and versatility, especially when you have a limited budget. Its color is resistant to fading when exposed to direct sunlight.
- Aluminum siding: Aluminum does a great job of imitating natural wood. Available in large, flat panels and vertical or horizontal planks, it is both durable and attractive. Popular for contemporary homes, it is lightweight, and moisture and mold resistant. It also helps insulate your home, helping to bring down your energy bills.
- Fiber cement siding: Made from cement combined with other durable ingredients, fiber cement siding is resistant to fire, moisture, and harsh weather. It provides a polished look and a wide range of textures that mimic natural wood. Fiber cement boards can be pre-painted at the factory or primed for painting after installation.
- Cedar siding: Known for its rustic charm and durability, cedar siding adds timeless appeal to any home. Although it can be more expensive than vinyl or cement fiber siding, it’s a great choice for a classic look. It’s available in various colors and can be customized to suit your vision.
- Engineered wood siding: Combining beauty with durability, engineered wood siding is made from recycled wood fibers bound with resin and wax. It’s easy to install and maintain, and it can be pre-stained to your desired color.
Transform the look of your home with our versatile siding options. Whether you prefer the classic appeal of siding planks, the minimalist elegance of siding panels, or the natural rusticity of siding shingles and shakes, we have the perfect solution to suit your style and complement your home’s architecture.
All of our siding material options are available in at least one style, if not all, of the following styles:
Lap siding is long, narrow boards that are installed horizontally, providing a traditional and rustic look while offering protection against the elements. They are a favorite among homeowners in Boston.
Available in a wide range of colors and finishes, they can be installed vertically as well, so you can be as creative as you like.
Panels consist of large, flat sheets made from various materials like aluminum or fiber cement. They are typically installed vertically, offering a modern and streamlined appearance, but can also be installed horizontally. If you’re in search of a minimalist design, they offer an excellent choice that has been trending in Boston over the past few years.
The panels are usually cut on-site to ensure they match the design of your home. Like our other siding materials, they are available in an impressive range of colors and textures, including a wood grain finish.
Shingles & Shakes
Commonly made from cedar, fiber cement, or vinyl, shakes and shingles are overlapping pieces that are installed individually, creating a textured and natural aesthetic.
Often used to achieve a classic, cottage-style charm, they create a warm, rustic look while adding contrast and depth to your home’s exterior walls and gables.
What is the Cost of Siding in Boston?
We believe in transparency, which is why our quotes encompass both materials and labor. The overall cost of your siding project in Boston will depend on factors such as material choices, design complexity, and additional elements like trim boards and soffits.
Here’s a rough estimate of the price range for our most popular siding options:
- Vinyl siding. Starting at approximately $12-13 per sq. ft., vinyl siding is the most cost-effective choice, making it ideal for budget-conscious homeowners. The average size home in Boston is on the small side compared to other cities in the U.S., at 1,750 sq. ft. Siding it in vinyl will run about $22,750.
- James Hardie® fiber cement siding. With an average price range of $15-16 per sq. ft., fiber cement siding offers exceptional durability and a polished finish. For the same average house, James Hardie® price tag comes to approximately $28,000.

While this is the most costly option, don’t forget it will add to your home’s curb appeal and undoubtedly increase its value.
