We’ve been installing siding on homes for decades and over the years we have discovered what is most important to homeowners when selecting the right siding.
Did you know that siding typically does not fail. What do we mean by this?
Unlike a roof, the siding on your home will most likely NOT fail in a way that leads to weather infiltration. You aren’t likely to experience catastrophic damage to your home through your siding.
Homeowners typically replace their siding because it is either showing its age and needs an update or the homeowner wants a specific new look for their home. Either way, a siding project usually comes down to aesthetic reasons only. That’s good news!
Vinyl siding is by far the most economical way to spruce up the outside of your home. With over 40 colors to choose from and many different shapes, it is a nice way to fix up your home on a budget.
Virtually maintenance-free vinyl siding will last a very long time on your home. Routine washing and maintenance will make it last even longer.
Composite siding is an all-new wood-based product that will give you the feel and warmth of a home sided in old-time clapboard siding. Paint it any color you want Color is only limited by your imagination. Add texture with shaped composite siding or even vertical. Composite siding is extremely durable and made from medium-density resins and Wood fibers this will stand up to all of mother nature's harshest conditions.

What vibe are you trying to accomplish with the styles, textures, and colors of the siding you choose? Are you going for a modern upscale look? Country cottage? Victorian? Maybe a barn style is up your alley. Now, what about the actual feel of the product itself?
Don’t forget about the impact some brick and stone have on the overall style of a home. Every detail you consider to accomplish the look you want will impact the cost of the project.
