Let’s Talk About Siding

Fundamentally and aesthetically, a part of making a house a home includes some exterior work. The siding on your house has received hail damage or needs a paint job, or you see a fantastic exterior Chip and Joanna Gaines installed; where do you start? We discuss types of siding below.

First, there are three types of siding that Wegner Roofing and Solar installs: Vinyl, Fiber Cement, and Insulated.

Vinyl is for homeowners who want the many advantages of this siding type, like its durability and cost-effectiveness. Vinyl siding is made from polyvinyl chloride and is available in a variety of colors to match your home’s exterior. Another benefit of vinyl siding is that it is low maintenance and has a long life span. Vinyl increases insulation, meaning that it could help you save money on your energy bills. Finally, vinyl offers peace of mind knowing that your building or home is safe and protected from weather and the elements.

Next, fiber cement siding is for homeowners who want siding that is durable, long-lasting, and with minimal maintenance. Fiber cement siding is a mixture of cement, sand, water, and cellulose fibers. Fiber cement siding is affordable; you can save money while improving your property’s appearance and enjoy improved protection from weather extremes. A brand we carry for fiber cement siding is James Hardie siding. Finally, fiber cement sidings are available in an array of different options to create the ideal exterior for your home.

Finally, insulated siding is for homeowners looking to reduce their heating and cooling costs by lessening the air draft and heat exchange with the exterior. There are many customizable options to add style to a home. Another benefit of insulated siding is the increased defense against the weather and elements. Finally, insulated siding increases curb appeal and property value.

What makes your siding fully customizable is not only the ability to choose between which type of siding you want but also the finish on that siding. Expert Finish and Diamond Kote are the preferred brands for siding finishes, both offer phenomenal color ranges and durability; more on both below.

First, LP SmartSide’s Expert Finish (LP SmartSide). Expert Finish is a factory finish with acrylic latex paint. There is a 15-year no fade warranty. Colors vary from Snowscape White to Abyss Black, with several in between.

Second is LP SmartSide’s Diamond Kote (Diamond Kote). Diamond Kote Pre-Finish is a combination of water, metal oxide, and resin; making Diamond Kote an extremely reliable finish for your siding and trim.
