It is necessary to provide extra protection to the exterior of the buildings as it always gets exposed, some people use different types of paints like emulsion and vinyl. But this protection is not sufficient for the areas which receive heavy rainfall throughout the year. As the continuous rain can adversely affect the interior and exterior of the building, hence siding can be a savior for the buildings in a geographical region prone to heavy rainfall throughout the year.

Siding is outer covering to the building which protects the building and provides it thermal insulation. There are different types of siding options available from natural siding to metal siding. Siding offers extra protection to the structure and offers a number of benefits which are as follows:
