Vinyl siding is one of the most durable siding products available and is versatile and low maintenance.
You can find vinyl siding in many different colors and patterns, so you’re sure to find one that suits your home. Additionally, vinyl siding is available in horizontal and vertical siding, shakes, scallops, fish scales, and more.
Properly insulated, vinyl siding also acts as a wind and cold barrier, helping to reduce your monthly energy bills.
Tittle Brothers is proud to offer Mastic Home Exteriors premium vinyl siding, which is among the most durable available in the industry. We are a certified Mastic Elite Contractor; fewer than 400 companies nationwide have received this honor.

Fiber Cement Siding
Our premier siding option is fiber cement; fiber cement is the fastest growing siding choice in America, and it’s been named the top home remodeling choice in terms of return on investment, according to Remodeling magazine.
Fiber cement siding is made up of cement, sand, and cellulose fiber cured with pressurized steam. It is incredibly durable and will protect your home for years to come.
You can choose fiber cement siding in smooth, stucco, or woodgrain finishes. Combined with vinyl trim to protect your home from the weather, you get the look of wood with the maintenance-free ease of vinyl.
We are a certified James Hardie fiber cement siding installer. James Hardie’s fiber cement siding is the most popular brand of new siding in America. Their HardieZone system gives their siding climate-appropriate performance attributes, so your home’s siding will withstand cold Michigan winters with ease!
Aluminum siding was the top siding option for many years. Though it doesn’t crack, it can dent and fade more easily than other cladding. However, it is fireproof, won’t rot, and is easy to keep clean.
Wood siding is the traditional choice and has been used on homes for hundreds of years. While more robust options are now more popular, there’s not much that can replace the look of cedar shake siding!
Wood siding is available in shakes (shingles) or clapboard. It’s typically made of raw hardwood, including red oak, beech, sycamore, and soft maple, and of softwoods like cedar and redwood.
Wood siding is decidedly not low-maintenance: You have to regularly scrape and paint the siding to keep it looking fresh.
Fiberglass siding is similar to fiber cement siding, in that you can get the woodgrain look without the maintenance of wood siding. Fiberglass siding panels look crisp and clean, making it a seriously impressive siding choice.
It is a strong, durable option that offers big energy savings, but can be more costly than fiber cement.
Should you repair or replace your siding?
Whether you should repair or replace your siding depends on a few factors, including the extent of your damage, how long the siding has been on, and what type of siding you have.
For instance, if your vinyl siding cracks, there is no real way to repair it; it needs to be replaced. However, because vinyl siding uses a locking system, you can replace several boards without touching the ones that are still in good condition. The same is often true of aluminum siding.
While beautiful, it’s likely you’ll have to replace wood siding at some point. If your wood siding has marks or gouges (such as from hail or pressure washing), we can typically repair the boards. However, if your wood siding has begun to rot, we’ll need to pull out the affected boards or shingles and replace them. Sometimes it’s best to completely remove all of your wood siding and start with a new material altogether.
When your siding is damaged, consider if replacing it may be the smarter decision in the long run.
The Cost of Repairing and Replacing Siding
While repairing a board or shingle may be more affordable now, in the long term, repairing as you go may add up to more than replacing your home with low-to-no-maintenance vinyl or fiber cement siding!
Most real estates and contractors agree that you should paint your home at least every seven years. Depending on the size of your home, this can cost tens of thousands of dollars over your lifetime.
Replacing your siding with a modern siding option can be a fraction of those lifetime costs!
Modern siding is far more durable and offers more energy efficiency than siding of the past. Moving to a more long-lasting siding material could be great for your energy bills and your home’s value.
