Siding protects the house against the elements and pests. It helps prevent moisture penetration and the growth of biological contaminants such as mold, dust mites and bacteria. These 3 types of biological contaminants have been known to cause allergic, respiratory, and other health problems in humans.
We install various types of siding:
- VINYL SIDING - Vinyl is a type of plastic that is made from ethylene (found in crude oil) and chlorine (found in regular salt). When processed, both the substances are combined to form Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) resin, or as is commonly referred to - Vinyl.
- FIBER CEMENT = HardiPlank Composition - Fiber cement siding is eco-friendly, can last a century and requires painting only every 20 years or so. You can order it primed and even painted, which saves a lot of time and is worth the added cost.
- CEDAR SHAKE - Cedar shake siding adds traditional detail to your home. This siding is used to achieve a rustic and timeless effect. Cedar is naturally rot-resistant and is therefore an ideal material for siding. Cedar siding is often left in its natural state to allow the cedar to weather into beautiful gray and brown hues. Shakes are installed much the same as other wooden siding materials. Work from the bottom up, with each row overlapping the top portion of the row below it. It is a time-consuming process; however, the end result is a rustic, quality finish for the exterior of your home.
- CLAPBOARD SIDING - Clapboard siding is a type of siding made from wedge-shaped boards which are designed to overlap with each other. The individual boards used in clapboard siding are known as clapboards; clapboard siding may also be referred to as bevel, lap, or weatherboard siding in various regions of the world. Many people find clapboard siding aesthetically pleasing, and it is associated especially with frame homes built in the American region of New England. Historically, clapboard siding was made by splitting wooden boards into thin strips which could be nailed onto the side of a home to protect it from the weather. The overlapping design allowed the wood to expand and contract with changing weather, and it encouraged rain and snow to run off the side of the structure, rather than penetrating it and causing damage.
