Overall, it is a great choice for many applications.

One downside about this siding is that it is incredibly labor intensive. It has to be delicately installed and will require maintenance to avoid water penetration, but with proper maintenance, this will last a lifetime.

Stucco Siding

To be fully efficient, you can add an additional layer that will serve as a waterproof barrier. Making it go through the process of galvanized-metal screening will also make it more durable that will also last a lifetime.

Although, this stone material is more expensive and high maintenance compared to the rest that is already mentioned. Other than that, it can serve as a great alternative but will require annual cleaning and inspection.
