There are many siding options when it comes to your home but you should not treat them the same as they are all different. Each siding offers its own benefits and features but your professional siding contractor should be able to help you determine which siding is best.
If you pay special attention to siding surfaces you might notice some are smooth and others have more of a grainy texture. This texture can actually make a difference on the appearance of your home from afar and up close. The way the light hits it will also affect how the texture looks and could add character to your home.
