Siding for houses is the outer covering or cladding meant to shed water and protect from the effects of weather. On a house that uses siding, it may act as a key element in the aesthetic beauty of the structure and directly impact its property value.
Siding for houses may be formed of horizontal boards or vertical boards, wood shingles, or sheet materials. In all cases, the purpose is to avoid wind and rain infiltration through the joints, which is a major challenge. This is met by overlapping, by covering or sealing the joint, or by creating an interlocking joint such as a tongue-and-groove or rabbet. Since building materials expand and contract with changing temperature and humidity, it is not practical to make rigid joints between the siding elements.
