Vinyl & Aluminum Siding

Both vinyl & aluminum siding (as well as soffits and trims) are very durable and basically maintenance free. Although, in the past, the majority of homes were sided with aluminum siding and accessories…vinyl has quickly become the panel of choice. Vinyl siding and accessories typically carry a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer and maintain their color better due to the fact that they are not painted products. If you are looking to increase the R-value of your home, be sure to ask about insulated backer board or insulated siding panels.

High-performance siding from Certainteed is one of the most popular siding types in North America.  With a huge variety of styles and colors available for every budget, it’s can be a tough decision.  Our highly trained experts can help you decide which siding option is right for your home.

Here are some of the benefits of vinyl siding:
Vinyl is practically maintenance free. No painting, no sealing.

• Vinyl has 10 times the life expectancy of traditional wood siding.
• No bugs here. It’s impervious to termites and other wood boring insects and pests.
• The many styles, patterns and color options allow you to create the perfect look for your home.
• You can get almost any color imaginable.
• Vinyl is more affordable than fiber cement, brick, stucco, aluminum and even wood.

Fiber Cement

Fiber cement products can increase the beauty, value, safety and durability of your home. They are resistant to flame, impact, moisture, rotting, hail damage, and termites. Innovative products that are designed to last a lifetime with low maintenance.

Fiber Cement siding is one of the best investments you can make in your home.  It offers great protection, durability, and the lifetime value is unbeatable.  On top of all that, it’s low maintenance.

Soffits & Trim

Your overhangs (whether covered by gutters or not) as well as your peaks are referred to as your homes soffits & rakes. Trim constitutes the wrapping of any wood around windows, doors, etc. Although you usually update these areas in conjunction with siding your home…that is not always the case. Your home may be brick or stucco and still have wood soffits & trim. By covering that wood with vinyl or aluminum soffit material you can make your homes exterior maintenance free. Don’t forget about your porch ceilings, as they can be transformed as well.

 

Housewrap

Regardless of which brand you choose, a properly installed Housewrap system (including proper flashing and sealing) will improve your homes thermal performance. It also acts as a secondary barrier to help prevent moisture from penetrating into your homes wall cavity by deflecting it and channeling it down the surface of the exterior wall, thus reducing the likelihood of building rot & wood degradation. Increase your comfort & peace of mind, while saving energy!
