Siding is the material applied to the outside parts of a building such as walls, windows and doors. Siding can be made from many different types of materials including wood, composite plastic, fiber cement siding (more expensive) vinyl siding (less expensive), stucco or traditional clay tiles.
Roofing refers to either shingle roofs that have been around for centuries but also flat vs pitched roofs with metal flashing used to seal out water penetration on sloped roofs which requires less maintenance than shingle roofs require in terms of replacing rotted boards etc., tar paper installed under these type slopes, as well as repairs needed due to leaks.
Compared to interior options like kitchen and bathroom remodels mentioned above, this type of renovation can be a small yet significant investment in your property for the long-term value, maintenance, and security of your home.
