Siding FAQs

Here are a few frequently-asked questions we get about our siding products.

What materials are best used for exterior sidings?

At Ring's End, we believe the best exterior siding is made from materials that are durable, eco-friendly, and good for the wallet. That's why we recommend wood siding, fiber cement siding, and wood shingles siding.

Cement board siding is good because it's durable, fire resistant, and low-maintenance.

Cedar siding is resistant to rot, mildew, and moisture. It can also be used untreated for a natural, rustic look.

Pine siding is loved by homeowners because it's durable, can be installed quickly, and is cost-effective.

Wood shingle siding is very durable, and cedar shingles can last up to 50 years! Wood Shingle is also weather-resistant and provides great insulation for the home.

How much does it cost to put siding on a house?

The total cost depends on the material and the size of your home. As a ball-park figure, using cedar wood siding for a 1,000 square-foot home costs around $10,000 (with labor included).

However, Ring's End's competitive prices and first-class service can help get your project completed under budget.

What color siding has the best resale value?

Boring colors like dark brown and gray which can offer the best resale value. It pays to play it safe rather than pick a brighter color which might not be for everyone.

Ring’s End carries siding that can be applied either vertically or horizontally, depending on your design and the desired effect of the siding. Most siding is made from wood, and cedar is the number one choice for low-maintenance and long life. Cement board siding is increasing in popularity as it resists rot, peeling, and insect infestation. We also carry full lines of wall preparation materials including newly engineered products like housewrap and rainscreen that protect against moisture and drafts.
