Find the Siding That’s Right for You

When it comes to siding, there are so many choices of design, style, material, and color that can be it can be overwhelming. We’re here to show you all the possibilities for your siding installation and help you choose the right one.

Here are some of the most common types of siding material so you can start thinking about what material is right for your home in Houston:

  1. James Hardie siding. Fiber cement siding (otherwise known as James Hardie) has grown considerably in popularity and is installed on millions of homes. It’s a modern composite material created with fibers from wood, cement, and other ingredients unique to the manufacturer. It is very durable and resistant to rot, termites, and fire and is customized to the climate zone, making it an excellent option for Houston’s extreme weather conditions.
  2. LP Smartside siding. LP Smartside is a complex composite wood material with many benefits, stronger than natural wood but with a similar appearance. It’s easy to maintain and install and can be tinted or painted to almost any color or appearance. Made of composite wood fibers, resins, and wax, it is more durable and weather-resistant than natural wood and doesn’t need much ongoing maintenance. Engineered wood is usually made from recycled materials and leftover lumber, which makes it a relatively eco-friendly choice.
  3. Vinyl siding. Vinyl is one of the most popular, versatile, and low-maintenance siding options. The low cost of materials and new technologies have made it even more durable and appealing. It is suitable for most weather conditions, but it can warp in intense sunlight or high heat. Vinyl siding can be used to create the texture and look of a wide variety of other siding materials. It can mimic shingles, natural stone, and even brick. Horizontal lap siding, vertical board and batten siding, and shingles are some of the most popular styles of vinyl siding.
  4. Wood siding. There are many natural wood siding options and composite wood siding options. For example, you can opt for natural cedar that emphasizes its beauty with the knots and grain intact with a clear or tinted stain, or you can have it primed and ready to paint with any color of exterior siding paint. Although cedar is a more expensive, higher maintenance option, it’s also more environmentally friendly than most other siding materials. You will need to get it stained or painted every few years to keep it in good condition.
  5. Metal siding. Aluminum and steel are durable and effective siding materials, usually lasting over 30 years. It is a premium material with the advantages of being resistant to the weather, insects, and woodpeckers and easy to work with, making it highly customizable. Metal siding is available in a wide range of colors and various styles, such as panels, horizontal lap siding, and vertical or horizontal planks. It can be painted a solid color, or it can be made to mimic the appearance of other kinds of siding, such as natural wood.

In addition to choosing what kind of material you want for your siding, you also have to consider which siding profile is right for your home in Houston: planks, panels, board & batten, or shingles. Each one is available anywhere from one to all five materials described above. Which one you choose depends on the style of your home, your personal preference, and your budget.

Here is what you need to know about each one.

Lap Siding

Lap siding is one of the most popular options – we renovated, on average, 80% of houses last year with lap siding. There are several different types of lap siding, including cottage or Dutch lap and nickel gap, more commonly known as ship lap. Sometimes traditional lap siding is referred to as clapboard siding, but there is a slight distinction in that clapboard siding tends to use smaller boards. It is excellent for creating a classic, cozy, inviting look.

Shingles and Shakes

Shingle siding is a classic option, adding warmth to your home’s overall design. They look quaint, refined and will make your home look outstanding. Shingles and shakes are available in several shapes and sizes. However, some options require hand-cutting and can be cost-prohibitive. If you’re interested in the look of shingle/shake siding but are up against budget concerns, you could use the technique for an accent or design element in a smaller square footage area.

Board & Batten Siding

The style provides the versatility to create an ultra-personalized aesthetic. Homeowners can play with the batten spacing, and incorporate other materials or siding profiles, to create both modern and more traditional looks. Stylistically, board and batten siding creates a clean and multi-dimensional effect that is popular in older Midwestern-style architecture as well as the current farmhouse style. It is often used on higher walls or gable walls because of its elongating effect.

Siding Panels

Panels offer an alternative contemporary look for more modern, sleek-looking homes. Panels can be smooth, or they can mimic the look and texture of natural wood. With a minimal effect, they can help to capture the clean lines of your house.

How Much Does the Siding Cost?

We make sure that we give you everything you need to make an informed decision when it comes to your siding, but no matter what, you can be confident that you are getting the best price and workmanship available on the market for the scope of work that will be done.

The most commonly used siding materials by companies are vinyl, James Hardie, and cedar. Here is the price range for each:

  • Vinyl siding is one of the most affordable options due to its low material cost and easy installation. It is durable and requires little to no maintenance. It is usually between $9 – $10 per sq. ft. For an average home, you’ll need about 2,500 sq. ft. of siding material, which brings the total to approximately $22,500 – $25,000.
  • James Hardie is very durable and resistant to rot, termites, and fire. It can be challenging in terms of installation, so finding a professional installer is key. The price is between $12 – $13 per sq. ft., bringing the total amount for the same house to around $30,000 – $32,500.
  • Cedar siding really stands out in terms of look and curb appeal. It is pretty easy to work with but requires more maintenance than the other options. This is more of a premium option starting at $16 per sq. ft. That brings the total for the same house to $40,000+ without additional costs for painting or other decorative elements.

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 $12.25
LP® Smartside® (Engineered Wood) Starts at $13.75
Vinyl Siding Starts at $9.75
Premium Vinyl Siding Starts at $11.50
Cedar Siding Starts at $16.75
Stucco Starts at $15.00
Longboard (Premium Aluminum) Starts at $48.40
Cultured Stone Starts at $52.50
* Prices are guidelines only and can change based on the seasonality and availability of materials.

The cost of siding renovation depends on a few things, such as the size and accessibility of your home, the material and profile you choose from, even the lifespan of the current siding.

If your siding is old and left untended, it can cause damage to the materials underneath and, in some cases, the integrity of the house. In these cases, the cost of the siding project will be higher to account for repairs needed to be done.

Our Work Process

You’ve chosen your siding materials and colors, defined your style, and you are excited to see your house become transformed – what’s next? Here’s a quick summary of what installation looks like at Ideal Siding and how long each phase should take:

Step 1
Old Siding Removal
First of all, we carefully remove the old siding in order not to damage the sheathing underneath. Removing the old siding is necessary in 90% of all cases because leaving it on could compromise your new siding, leading to less durability and a rough appearance. This could take anywhere from 2 to 7 days, depending on the type of siding that needs to be removed and the size of your home.
Step 2
Sheathing Damage Inspection
When the old siding is removed, we inspect the sheathing for any rotten or moldy areas or any other damage. From our experience, most homes do not require repairs since siding does an excellent job of protecting the sheathing underneath. Sheathing replacement doesn't add much time to the total installation.
Step 3
Preparation of the Wall for Siding
The next step is to prepare your home for its new siding. This includes installing building paper and flashings to help protect the walls from any excess moisture and installing strapping (optional) to help improve airflow and ensure your siding lasts a little longer.
Step 4
Siding Installation and Touch-ups
After all the prep is completed, we'll start installing your siding. This process takes between 7-10 days on average, depending on the materials, your design, and the size of your home. We also install flashings, dryer vents, light fixture boxes, and bug screens at this stage. If necessary, we can do touch-up paint and apply caulking to seal any openings. This is also when we install soffits, trim boards, overlap corners, and other decorative elements to your siding.
Step 5
Cleaning Up and Final Walk
When the installation is complete, we take a lot of pride in making sure your home and yard are completely clean. We remove all construction waste and recycle what we can. After cleanup, the Project Manager will inspect your siding and ensure that everything is up to high standards, and they will go over everything that has been done with you. They will give you tips on caring for your new siding and the details of any warranties on the completed work and materials.

Your Project Manager will guide you through the whole process. They will communicate clearly with you and gladly answer any questions that you might have. When you decide to work with us, we want to make sure you’re confident in your decision every step of the way.

Loved the work that was just done on our house

Very good experience with Ideal. They installed Hardi Plank siding on my house. They answered my enquiry promptly. Gave me a quote that was reasonable and carried out the work when they said they would. Most importantly, the work was very good and the bill was the same as the quote. Recommended.

Sean B., Houston

Can’t ask for much more from a siding company!

We had a great experience with Ideal Siding. Jeremy was very helpful in the planning and design process and kept me updated with cost estimates and scheduling. The crew was also great, efficient, and talented at their craft. The end result is we have a great-looking house, quite a dramatic change, and exactly what we were wanting out of the project. The pricing was great, too. Looking forward to hiring them again next year for another project.

Leland D., Houston

The siding was professionally done, and everything looks great!

Hired them to install Hardie on the upper portion of my home. The quote was reasonable, gave suggestions, very professional. I wasn’t home during the installation so they provided text updates including pictures of how the job was progressing. I would definitely hire them again for future projects.

Nick F., Houston

Excellent professional contractor! Would definitely hire again

We searched high and low for siding companies that could help us with our siding replacement for our home in Houston. This siding contractor had the best selection and the friendliest staff. I’m happy we found them.
