One of the best ways to build immediate street appeal for your home is to replace the siding. Historical siding on homes was made from old-growth cedar or pine heartwood. During the 20th Century, demand exhausted most old-growth forests and companies started using younger trees for wood siding. As it turns out, the second-growth wood doesn’t have the same consistency that affords tight-grain planing and thus, the wood is subject to rot or conditions prohibitive to paint adherence. Continual painting is required and can be very expensive to maintain.
In response to the long-term performance prospects of wood siding, the building product industry has introduced several alternatives that offer superior qualities to present-day wood siding. These options include vinyl siding and engineered wood siding. We offer these solutions not only because we believe in them for their long-term field performance, but also because they offer minimum maintenance to homeowners drained from years of scraping and painting. They also offer an opportunity to update the look of your home to a new color or accent theme to match a window and door project.
