Siding Types

LP Smartside Engineered Wood Siding

The most durable siding on the market. We use LP SmartSide and it is our preferred material. Maintenance is minimal with high-quality paint and can come pre-painted. There are many standard colors or you can pick a custom color. This siding holds up to hail very well.

LP SmartSide is a great option if you’re looking for durability and style. This siding has a high-end look that looks like traditional wood siding. It’s also one of the most durable siding options on the market. This is accomplished through their proprietary SmartGuard process, which protects against hail, wind, moisture, rot, and termites. This siding is a Kingdom Builders favorite.

Fiber Cement

For years, fiber cement has been labeled the most durable, but here in Minnesota with the changing of seasons, that may not be the case. We would be glad to discuss the pros and cons of fiber cement siding with you.

Traditional Wood

Wood siding can look great for a little while but needs constant maintenance. The durability is also low due to the fact that it is soft and vulnerable to both rot and insects. Woodpeckers also really like to attack it. This material is not common anymore.

Cedar Shake

Cedar shakes are very aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It is fairly durable but requires a lot of maintenance. Woodpeckers like to get after this as well. Recently, the price of cedar has gone up dramatically.

Metal is labeled as maintenance-free but there are some issues. Sometimes the paint ends up chipping and flaking off. Also, it dents fairly easily, it doesn't hold up to hail storms very well. If pieces are dented, replacing individual panels is impossible without redoing the whole side of the house.

Composite siding delivers the look of wood siding, with the added advantage of low maintenance and moisture resistance. Our preferred manufacturer designs their siding with glass-reinforced polymer and graphite-infused polystyrene, which boosts durability in windy conditions.
