There’s a variety of sustainable siding options for home-builders and everyday homeowners. If you’re exploring eco-friendly siding options for your home, it’s important to assess which types of exterior will provide the best return on your investment while doing their part to protect the environment. Using sustainable siding on your home doesn’t have to mean exceeding your budget or forgoing your aesthetic preferences. Go green with your siding by exploring these three eco-friendly siding options for your home.
Brick is a long-standing option for siding and other home elements. The longevity of brick makes it a sustainable option that exceeds the risk of flammability, rot, and fading. Using brick for your siding requires professional installation, but the investment will pay itself off for years to come.
Stucco is made from all-natural elements such as water, sand, lime, and cement. Its natural composition ranks this option highly for eco-friendliness. You even have the option to remove the cement element to further improve its sustainability.
3. Fiber Cement
Fiber cement also has a natural composition of sand, cement, and wood pulp. Using these natural resources means the siding of your home won’t release toxic emissions into the atmosphere. Fiber cement is also fire resistant, ranking highly as a durable building material similar to brick or stone. It’s also one of the most versatile sustainable options for siding. It offers a broad range of styles, and it can even have an aesthetic similar to that of wood if you’re searching for a longer-lasting alternative.
When you’re evaluating siding options for your home, finding one that’s both sustainable and suitable for your design preferences can feel challenging. While weighing your eco-friendly siding options, be mindful of what the installation process entails and if the additional costs will be sustainable for both the planet and your budget.Marla Stone, MSW REALTOR® License ID: 01823712 Nora Gallogly Group Beverly & Co.
