Types of Siding


When it comes time to choose siding for your home, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the wide variety of materials, colors and textures now available. In addition to our lifetime warranties, here are some benefits of the most popular siding materials installed on today’s home.

Vinyl Siding

Introduced to the market in the early 1960s, vinyl siding has grown in popularity due to its durability, versatility and ease of maintenance. It is impact-resistant, strong and available in a broad palette of colors. Vinyl siding also is available in many profiles, including traditional lap, Dutch lap, horizontal and vertical panels, shakes, scallops, shingles, fish scales and beaded designs in various widths as well as colors to compliment your homes unique style.

With the ability to withstand high winds of 110 mph or higher and a composition that resists heat, cold and moisture, vinyl siding retains its looks over time. And perhaps most importantly, vinyl siding never needs paint! The only maintenance it needs to look its best is an occasional wash with a garden hose.

Laminated Foam Back Siding

Energy efficient laminate foam back siding has recently become a popular investment for homeowners of older properties looking to increase the insulating value of their exterior walls, which weren’t insulated to todays standards. With foam back siding products, an added r-value of 3.5 can inrease a homes thermal value by 30%, thus significantly increasing sensible comfort with the added benefit of utility savings.

Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber cement siding is composed of a mixture of cement, sand and wood fiber that is cured with pressurized steam to increase its strength and dimensional stability. It can be molded to look like genuine wood planks, yet is completely resistant to rot, fire, wind and insects. Fiber cement prodcts provide the greatest return of investment on your home.

Because fiber cement does not expand and contract like wood, it holds paint very well. Most fiber cement comes primed and ready to finish, and is also available with factory-finished paint backed by a warranty. Fiber cement siding may be painted using water-based acrylic paint, which typically lasts up to 15 years. Stains may also be applied to fiber cement.

Aluminum Siding

Once the leader in replacement siding, aluminum has rapidly lost ground to more modern materials. Though it can dent and fade, aluminum will not crack or rot — making it ideal for wet climates. Aluminum siding is low-maintenance, fireproof, and comes in a variety of styles and colors.
