Does your home need new siding?
If you aren’t sure, ask yourself these questions:
- Is the old siding chipped, rotten in places or falling off here and there?
- Has your siding warped or faded in recent years?
- Are you putting more time and effort into maintaining the house siding?
- Has moisture made its way between the seams or under the siding?
- Do you have to scrape and repaint your house more often than you used to?
- Have you noticed an increase in drafts and higher power bill for heating and cooling?
If you answer yes, to any of those questions, it is probably time for new siding. Contact us to schedule a site visit.
Exterior Siding Options
When it comes to deciding on the type of siding, it is important to choose a material that fits the style of your house and your lifestyle. Here are some of the most popular options.
Vinyl Siding – won’t rot or flake and is usually less expensive, but it can crack and fade
Wood Clapboard – with periodic care, solid wood (usually cedar, pine, spruce, redwood, cypress or Douglas fir) siding maintain their beauty for a long time
Seamless Steel Siding – very strong and resists shrinking, custom fit to the exact measurements of your home, wood like texture or corrugated looks available
Engineered Wood Siding – OSB, hardboard, veneered plywood are examples, fairly inexpensive to install, does not look exactly like wood, but more natural than vinyl or aluminum
Cedar Shingle Siding – also called “shakes” – often stained brown, gray or other earth tones; blending nicely with wooded landscapes
Stucco Siding – durable and relatively low maintenance, add a tint and you may never have to paint
Stone Veneer Siding – granite, limestone, slate and others are beautiful and pretty much unaffected by weather, but they are on the expensive side, precast stone veneers are more affordable and can look pretty authentic
Aluminum Siding – easy to maintain, durable and fireproof, but it can dent and fade
Brick & Brick Veneer Siding – available in a wide variety of nice earthy colors, lasts for centuries, but it is more expensive
Cement Fiber Siding – can have the appearance of wood, stucco or masonry, very durable and natural looking
