There are so many good siding options on the market today, including the popular Norandex Vinyl Siding. In this article, we’ll provide some more information on Norandex and siding in general.
Basics of Vinyl Siding
Vinyl siding is the most common form of siding for today’s homeowners. Like all materials, it has both strengths and weaknesses when compared to other options such as fiber cement siding or wood siding.
Most homeowners who select vinyl siding do so because of cost. Within the category of vinyl siding, you will find options ranging from cheap and flimsy to those that are more expensive but more durable. Less durable products are often used on cheaper homes and are referred to as “builder grade” vinyl siding. However, when most homeowners hire CoMo Premium Exteriors to replace their siding, they typically select higher-quality vinyl products that will be more durable and experience less color fade.
On the downside, vinyl siding can discolor and doesn’t hold up as well as fiber-cement and wood siding. It also carries the stigma of being a lesser product and it does not hold its value as well when compared to other siding options.
We always recommend homeowners do their homework whenever they make decisions regarding which building materials to choose. You can check out this post on the pros and cons of vinyl siding to get a further grasp of its fundamentals.
About Norandex Vinyl Siding?

Does Norandex Vinyl Siding Stack Up Well Against Other Brands?
When it comes to siding the primary types of siding include wood, vinyl, and fiber cement. Within the category of vinyl siding, there are many brands to choose from, and although they are made similarly, they differ based on the additives used to help them retain their strength and color fastness. Other types of siding options that are also recommended and installed by Como Premium Exteriors include the following.
James Hardie Siding
James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding is a favorite of homeowners looking for durability and a product that holds its value. As with vinyl, fiber cement siding is manufactured by multiple brands but the best brand on the market is James Hardie. With this product, you never need to worry about bugs or woodpeckers, and the James Hardie company stands behind its products.
LP Smart Siding
LP SmartSide Wood Siding is another solid option if you prefer wood. As an “engineered wood” product, LP SmartSide is made by combining resin, wood fibers, and other additives compressed through intense heat. The end result is a denser material that won’t succumb to wood root and water absorption nearly as much as other fiberboard-type sidings.
While we tend to lean more towards the fiber-cement side of the spectrum, there’s room for each of these three choices for savvy homeowners. It’s mostly a matter of weighing pros and cons to determine which type of siding is the best fit for your budget, the look you wish to achieve, the expected time you plan to stay in the home, and any specific issues you may have such as woodpeckers.
