Siding Services in Chicago & Suburbs
We install three of the most popular types of siding: vinyl, fiber cement and engineered wood. We have found these types of siding to be popular with homeowners for a number of reasons, including good durability, lifespan and having a nice selection of color and trim choices available.
Vinyl – Vinyl siding is made from flexible plastic, and it is popular with homeowners because it is durable, requires much less upkeep than wood, comes in a wide variety of colors and styles, and can last a long time. In fact, some manufacturers offer lifetime warranties for their vinyl siding. In many cases, these warranties are transferable if a house is sold.
Fiber cement – Fiber cement siding is made from sand, cement and cellulose. It is popular with some homeowners because it offers even more durability than vinyl, and it needs even less upkeep. Like vinyl, it comes in a wide variety of colors and styles, and it has an even longer lifespan than vinyl, due to its damage-resistant nature.
Engineered wood – Engineered wood siding is made from wood fragments that are bound together with a resin binder, creating siding that looks like wood but doesn’t have any of the material flaws found in real wood. It is popular with price-conscious homeowners because it offers the classic beauty of real wood siding and at a more affordable price. Like other modern types of siding, it is also durable (often lasting up to 30 years or more) and practically maintenance free.
Trim – Decorative exterior trim like faux sills and mouldings can add interest and value to a newly sided house. Ask us about the trim options we have available.
Fiber cement trim – Trim made from ultra-durable fiber cement resists rotting, warping and cracking, as well as damage from mold, mildew and termites.
The most common requests we see:
- Siding panel replacement services (single or multiple panels)
- Rotted wood replacement services (trim, moulding, etc.)
- Substrate replacement services (for damaged substrate)
