Fiber cement siding is another option, it is an alternative to wood and uses a relatively complex, high-pressure, multi-step process that combines wood fiber, recycled contents, cement and specialty additives. They are available in three main styles: no-groove, textured lap and panel. It does not experience warping or swelling and is easy to install.
Wood siding is ideal for a mobile home if you want to have a charming and rustic appearance. Most if not all of the wood siding that’s offered is usually made from weather resistant wood or treated for the same.
