Siding is a protective and decorative exterior covering for buildings, such as houses and commercial structures. It serves several important functions, including enhancing a building’s aesthetics, providing insulation, and protecting the structure from the elements. Siding materials and styles vary widely, allowing property owners to choose options that suit their design preferences and functional needs.

Key Features and Aspects of Siding:
- Protection: Siding acts as a shield against the elements, protecting a building’s structural components from rain, wind, sunlight, and other environmental factors.
- Insulation: Some siding materials, like vinyl or insulated siding, offer thermal insulation properties, improving a building’s energy efficiency and reducing heating and cooling costs.
- Aesthetics: Siding greatly influences a building’s curb appeal. It comes in various styles, colors, and textures, allowing property owners to customize the look of their structures.
- Durability: The longevity and durability of siding depend on the chosen material. Common materials include vinyl, wood, fiber cement, brick, stone, and metal.
- Maintenance: Different siding materials require varying levels of maintenance. For example, vinyl siding is relatively low-maintenance, while wood siding may need regular painting or staining.
Common Siding Materials:
- Vinyl Siding: Vinyl is a popular choice due to its affordability, low maintenance, and wide range of color options. It is resistant to moisture, insects, and rot.
- Wood Siding: Wood offers a natural and timeless look. Cedar and redwood are popular wood siding choices, but maintenance is required to prevent decay and weathering.
- Fiber Cement Siding: Made from a mixture of cement, wood fibers, and other materials, fiber cement siding is durable, fire-resistant, and resistant to pests.
- Brick Siding: Brick is known for its durability and classic appearance. It requires minimal maintenance and provides good insulation.
- Stone Siding: Natural stone siding offers a rustic and elegant look but is relatively expensive. It is durable and weather-resistant.
- Metal Siding: Metal siding options include aluminum and steel. They are durable, low-maintenance, and can provide a modern or industrial aesthetic.

Washed Gravel, Drainage Rock & River Rock
This rock is typically used in landscaping to resemble a dry riverbed or as a flower bed border. Inquire with Cooper’s Landscape/Maintenance regarding our Drainage Rock and Washed Gravel services for King County and Seattle.
French Drains: The French drain is a ditch with a perforated pipe. Filling the trench or pit with drain rock facilitates the flow of water toward the pipe for redirection. French drains are essential for preventing water damage to the foundations of buildings.
Driveways: Occasionally, drain rock is utilized to line and support paved driveways. When put beneath or around asphalt or concrete, drain rock swiftly absorbs runoff water that flows from impermeable pavement. Since the depth of the topsoil is between two and eight inches, it does not necessarily absorb rainwater immediately. When the topsoil is saturated, drain rock placed next to driveways can help prevent flooding.
Gardening: Last but not least, gardeners value drainage gravel because it may be used as mulch to prevent soil erosion. In addition, drain stones can be used as a foundation for plant beds to prevent excessively damp roots.
