Siding Installation and Material: How Long Will House Siding Last?

Siding Installation Barrington

There’s nothing worse than making an investment in your home only for that so-called “investment” to fail you down the road. You want to make sure your investments last, so when weighing your siding options, the question must be asked: how long will different types of house siding last? Before we dive into different materials’ lifespans, it’s important to first note that any siding installed improperly won’t last as long as it could. That’s why expert siding installation is a must. Your siding needs to be installed correctly in order to get as many years as possible out of your investment.

That said, let’s move on to a breakdown of how long vinyl and fiber cement siding lasts.

Vinyl Siding

There’s a reason vinyl siding is so popular; it can last up to 100 years with proper maintenance, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). Even without proper maintenance, it’ll likely last at least 60 years. That makes it one of the most low-maintenance siding options out there that’ll still stand the test of time.

Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber cement siding is a relatively new product compared to vinyl siding, but it holds a candle to classic siding materials like vinyl. Both the NAHB and the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors predict that properly installed fiber cement siding can last 100 years. This is because fiber cement siding is composed of cement, glass, cellulose fiber, and sand. Combined, these four ingredients make for seriously tough siding material.
