The Pros and Cons of Different Siding Materials

As you think about replacing old, worn, or damaged siding on your New Jersey home, one of the first steps is to decide which siding materials you want to use. Bellari offers several different options to choose from, all with different price points and features.

Because siding is such an important part of your home’s exterior, you want to make sure your new siding looks great and exceeds your expectations. Here’s an overview of the different kinds of siding to help get you started.


Homeowners are drawn to vinyl siding’s wide array of colors to choose from as well as its affordable price tag. Vinyl also tends to be virtually maintenance-free to keep your North, Central, or South Jersey home looking beautiful without much effort on your end. Plus, there are many insulated and energy-efficient vinyl siding options to consider.

Engineered Wood

Engineered wood siding allows you to enjoy the look and feel of real wood, but without the maintenance. Get yours smooth or embossed for added texture. But keep in mind that any exposed cracks or edges can potentially decay.


Metal siding comes with the risk of getting rust, scratches, and dents. However, aluminum siding is generally low-maintenance and comes in lots of great colors to showcase your personal style. And like engineered wood, it can also be installed with either a smooth or embossed finish.
