I am a new here, someone could help me?

everyone here, I am so glad I can search this wonderful website in the internet. First allow me to introduct myself. I am a university student major in architecture in China, now I must write a article about the EXTERIOR MATERIAL MARKET in the USA. I read a lot of articles about the exterior material in the internet, and see many materials, for example, siding(Aluminum,wood,fiber cement)brick,Cedar Shingles,Stucco ect., but now I am puzzled, I wonder if some warmhearted person can tell me the difference between these materials? I can't see these materials in out market.
I am looking forward your early reply

Welcome to the forums! If you can imagine it, it can almost be used as siding. Aluminum, vinyl, James Hardie, ship lap wood, log, cedar shakes, reverse board and batten, T1-11, and on and on. Google any of the above to get more information on their specific qualities.

Here's a link to some pictures I've taken in the past. Maybe a picture to go with the various types of exteriors will help.
