New siding can improve the value and curb appeal of a home.
There are three main types of exterior residential siding; vinyl siding, fiber cement siding, and wood siding.
Lindholm Roofing offers a broad range of siding products and accessories. Our helpful staff can provide current siding samples and brochures from leading siding manufacturers.
Vinyl Siding is made from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and is known for being cost effective, durable and maintenance free. U.S. Census Bureau statistics indicate vinyl is the choice two out of three times for re-siding a single family home.
Vinyl siding is sold in a variety of colors, textures and shapes. It can either replace existing exterior siding or be installed over older siding.
The wide variety of vinyl siding systems includes horizontal and vertical siding; traditional clapboard and authentically detailed “shaped” sidings; wide and narrow panel exposures; and smooth, subtle and deep wood grain textures. Most of these are available in a wide assortment of traditional and contemporary colors.
Fiber Cement siding is another popular residing option because of its durability, appearance and length of warranty. Fiber Cement siding is termite-resistant, non-combustible and looks, feels, and installs like wood.
Fiber cement siding comes in a variety of styles and colors from the factory, making it a very easy product to match the desired appearance of any project.
Additionally, Fiber Cement siding is a very durable product that can be used in both warm and cold climates. Many warranties of this product coffer up to a 50-year warranty against manufacturing defects
Wood siding adds a rich, natural look to a home. It is made from a variety of wood species, including cedar, pine, spruce, redwood and cedar.
Cedar is a good choice for exterior building applications because of its appearance and durability. Cedar is naturally resistant to decay and insect damage. Red cedar and white cedar are both popular depending on the application. The relatively new panelized cedar clapboards make cedar siding easier to install, more affordable for the owner, and more profitable for the contractor.
A good wood siding installation should last for many, many years if it is properly maintained. Proper maintenance includes power washing, staining and sealing when the sun and the elements fade the finish, or mold or mildew occur.
