Exterior siding has more purposes than just the look of your home or business. Siding or wall cladding is the protective material attached to the exterior side of a wall of a house or other building. Along with the roof, it forms the first line of defense against the elements, most importantly sun, rain/snow, heat and cold, improves insulation hence creating a stable, more comfortable environment on the interior side. Different materials work better for different climates, such as those that are very hot versus those that are very cold. Considering which is the right choice for your home or business can be daunting.

The most noticeable purpose is aesthetics. The material you choose for the exterior of your home largely influences its overall architectural style. Finally, the right type of exterior siding influences your home resell value. Choose the right type, and the curb appeal will increase dramatically

There is a wide and expanding variety of materials to side with, both natural and artificial, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. Masonry walls as such do not require siding, but any wall can be sided. Walls that are internally framed, whether with wood, or steel I-beams, however, must always be sided.

Optimal Contracting can help you to choose the right siding material for your home or commercial facility that can increase the service life of your siding system. Optimal Contracting can help you navigate structural and price constraints and guide you toward the right material selection for you and your home of facility.

Here are some of the material options the experienced siding contractors at Optimal Contracting can install:

Vinyl, Metal, Wood, Brick, Stone, Fiber Cement, Stucco, Imitation Stone/Brick


For example Vinyl siding is one of the most affordable siding options available on the market today. For both commercial and residential applications, vinyl siding provides design versatility, energy efficiency and protection to your facility for a low price. 

With so many texture and color options, vinyl siding can fit into the design of almost any building or home. Plus, vinyl siding prices are much lower than other siding materials such as shakes or stucco.

Between the weatherproofing and design versatility, vinyl siding prices are well worth it. But by far the most important factor in the success of your vinyl siding system is the installation. Proper installation by a professional siding contractor like Optimal Contracting is key to its long-term effectiveness.

  • Design considerations
    Vinyl siding comes in many shapes, sizes, and colors. Whether you want blue fish scales, grey scallops or vinyl that resembles cedar shakes, there is a color, texture, and shape to match your design needs—and wants.
  • Low vinyl siding costs
    You don’t want” cheap”—or low quality—siding, but you do want a high-quality siding system for a low cost—that’s why vinyl siding is such a good option. Vinyl costs are low, but they offer value to your home through energy efficiency, durability and overall strength.
  • Proper installation
    Vinyl siding that isn’t installed properly can warp, buckle, break or form gaps at seams. Inherently, vinyl siding is low maintenance—you only have to scrub it down every once in awhile with soap—but can become quite high maintenance if not properly installed by a contractor like Optimal Contracting.
