More choices but also more maintenance
Wood siding is a more natural looking choice for your house. With wood siding, you have many more options than any others. You can stain the wood to give it the finish you want, use log siding, boards, and much more. Wood siding also insulates the house a little bit. If you do use wood, note that it does get damaged from harsh weather and requires more maintenance to keep it looking new.
Most common siding with low maintenance
Vinyl siding is what you mostly see and is the cheapest in price. The maintenance is almost nothing and will not rot like wood siding. It does not crack or chip or become infested with insects either. Vinyl does very well in harsh weather conditions such as hail or a snow storm. However, when damaged it may be hard to fix and may require replacement.
Lightweight and low maintenance
Aluminum siding is an option that is much stronger and longer lasting than wood or vinyl siding. Insulating far better than wood or vinyl siding, it will not get ruined in harsh weather. It is wise to get extra so you can replace panels easily and it will match the rest of your house. Also, it is very light and requires hardly any maintenance. Just wash it annually with water and laundry soap, hose it off and you are done.
Very low maintenance and slightly higher installation cost
Steel siding is thicker than aluminum, but still stronger than wood or vinyl. It will not be damaged by harsh weather and will out stand winter storms. Steel siding is very easy to install and requires pretty much no maintenance. There will never be any way for water to go through, so do not worry about your house being damaged by water. This is may be a little expensive choice out of wood, vinyl, and aluminum.
The point to remember is that siding is meant to protect your home. If left in a failing state or installation was poor, the protective covering itself can become a storage space for moisture, insect pests and fungus.
