Siding Buyer’s Guide

How do I know when I need my siding replaced? 

Rot and Cracks

This is definitely the most notable sign. This tends to happen naturally over time. If the rotting and cracks are in just one or two spots, you may not need to totally replace your siding. 

Increased Energy Bills

Sometimes the signs aren’t visible. If you notice drafts coming through your walls or if you notice the increase in energy bills, you may need a siding replacement. 

Moisture and Mold

Not all physical signs can be seen on the exterior of your home. If you notice any water stain or mold on your walls, your siding may be damaged. 

What type of siding is best for me?

Hardboard Siding

These types of siding is best for those looking for a real wood product. This type of siding, which included LP Smart Siding, looks and acts like real wood but is treated so it doesn’t take in water. This product will not rot and we offer a 50-year warranty on this type of siding. 

The style of this type of siding gives your house the appearance of having wood characteristics and fits more of a contemporary style. 

Seamless Steel Siding

The biggest pro to seamless steel siding is the longevity and low maintenance. This is the longest lasting option on the market and it takes less to take care of than wood siding. 

One aspect that customers look at when deciding what siding they want is the style they are going for. Vinyl and wood is more of an older, more contemporary style. While seamless steel siding tends to have a more modern and minimalistic look. 

The downside to seamless steel siding is the cost of both the shingles and the installation. 

Vinyl Siding

This is the most common form of siding. It is an excellent option for most homeowners. It is low cost and low maintenance compared to other forms. Another plus is the many colors and styles to choose from. 

One downside compared to metal siding is the longevity. Metal siding usually lasts longer and takes less damage.
