Variety of Siding Materials and 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.
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 (James Hardie) or PVC are better options for your Atlanta home, since these materials hold up very well even to a lot of humidity.
Shingles and Shakes
Siding shingles may be the perfect solution if you have a historic home or a recently-built home that looks historic, but you don’t want to ruin the look with siding that appears too modern.
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 Atlanta homes.
Board and Batten
With its versatility, board and batten siding offers homeowners the opportunity to create a personalized aesthetic. By adjusting batten spacing and incorporating different materials or siding profiles, it is possible to achieve both modern and traditional looks.
This siding style creates a clean and multi-dimensional effect that is commonly used for a modern farmhouse style. It is often used on higher walls or gable walls.
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, panels may be the perfect option for you. Panels can be cut to any size and arranged in whichever orientation works well for your house.
Smooth panels are an excellent choice as they prevent the accumulation of dirt and grime caused by smog and humidity. However, if you desire more options for the surface material, the cedarmill texture is also a fantastic option.
How Much Does the Siding Cost in Atlanta?
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 the siding is made of
- Condition of your current exterior
It may come as a surprise to some, but the state of your current siding plays an important role in determining the cost of new siding. If your existing siding has deteriorated and caused damage to the underlying sheathing, repairs will be necessary before installing new siding, which will raise the cost.
In cases where the siding has significantly deteriorated, the walls beneath the sheathing may also be damaged, resulting in the need for extensive structural repairs before new siding can be installed. It is important to note that damage is not always evident until the current one is removed.
Here’s a quick table of some siding materials and their cost per sq. ft.
