Depending on the material some types of siding will be more water resistant than others. This will expand the life of that material as well as prevent decay due to water or moisture.
Siding material comes with an R-value that measures the energy efficiency of the material. The higher the R-value the better the thermal insulation. For example, stucco siding has an R-Value of .4 while insulated vinyl has a 2.0-3.0 R-value.
DESIGN & TEXTURE
The color, texture, and overall design of the siding are all about appearance. How your siding will look and what colors are available are probably one of the most important decisions that will affect your siding purchase. Brick or stone have limited color options and focus on texture while vinyl siding color options are limitless.
The structure of your home and exterior can play a role in what type of siding you wish to install. A complex 3-story Victorian home may not be best suited for stone veneer siding.
Eco-friendly siding is found in many current materials; fiber cement is made of sand, cement, clay, and wood-pulp fibers. Others such as wood are naturally biodegradable & green and come straight from nature. Green siding is also related to the energy efficiency of the home and how well it insulates the heat.
LIFE SPAN & DURABILITY
How long will your siding last before it has to be replaced, maintained, or painted?

Resistance to mother nature, rot, and insects can all play a role in the how your siding will last.
