12×20 Shed Siding Options

Many shed companies offer a variety of shed siding options with various colors to match your surrounding property. Some popular shed siding options include the following.

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding is a popular choice for shed exteriors due to its cost-effectiveness and minimal upkeep requirements. It is durable and able to withstand harsh weather conditions and pests making it a practical option. Although occasional washing is recommended to maintain its appearance, it is essential to be aware that vinyl shed siding may fade and discolor over time. Vinyl sheds may also be limited in their insulation properties.

Wood Siding

Wood siding is an attractive and visually pleasing choice for 12×20 sheds, providing a timeless and customizable look with various wood species. With proper care, wood siding can last for many years. However, it’s important to keep a few things in mind. Regular maintenance, such as sealing and staining, is necessary to maintain its appearance and protect it from weather damage. Wood siding does not offer the same level of pest resistance as other shed options, and may be prone to termites and similar insects.

Metal Siding

When choosing siding for 12×20 sheds, metal siding is a fantastic option to consider. It boasts remarkable durability and comes in various colors that can blend well with your property’s surroundings. Metal siding is renowned for its resistance to rot, pests, and fire, making it a dependable and popular choice for shed exteriors. Additionally, it offers excellent weather resistance and is relatively easy to install. Unfortunately, it is good to note that metal siding can be prone to warping under extreme conditions and may dent or scratch easier than some other shed options.

LP Smartside Siding

LP SmartSide siding is a popular and innovative engineered wood siding created to combat rot and decay effectively. With outstanding durability, it can endure moisture and impacts with relative ease. One notable perk of LP SmartSide is its warranty, which safeguards against rot and other damages. This makes it a dependable and budget-friendly choice for 12×20 sheds. Nevertheless, ensure consistent upkeep to ensure its longevity over the years.
