Check Your Siding 2: Best Materials

Most siding is replaced because of product failure or improper application. In order to maintain or increase the value of your home, there are two pivotal decisions to be made. The first is to select a siding company that can aide you in the selection of a product with proven integrity and a proven record for professional application and finishing.

Second is the actual materials. Installing the right siding on your home can accentuate its character, design and visual appeal and you can highlight unique features – such as a chimney or entryway – in a complimentary material to create interest and depth, without shredding your budget.

At A Clark Roofing and Siding LP we offer one of the most complete lines of professional installation of premium cladding systems from which to choose, including:

Premium Vinyl Siding: is manufactured from polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and has performed as a construction material, providing impact-resistance, rigidity and strength for years. Maintain by rinsing annually with a garden hose, and periodic professional cleaning help restore your sidings appearance. Vinyl warranties typically range from 50 years to the lifetime of the product’s original owner.

Fibre Cement Siding: is a durable, natural-looking chameleon that can emulate wood, stucco, or masonry with many admirable features: its termite-proof, won’t rot, weathers well, and is fire-resistant. It comes in multiple widths, is tougher than vinyl and low-maintenance, and can be painted. Some manufactures even offer a 50-year warranty.

Engineered Wood Siding: is made from wood products mixed with other materials, bonded with resin, and then compressed. It comes ready to paint, pre-primed, or pre-finished, which also helps to lower installation costs. A Clark Roofing and Siding carries

LP CanExel made with a proprietary SmartGuard® manufacturing process to protect against fungal decay and termites, and backed by a 5/50-Year Limited Warranty.

Hardboard Siding: of beautiful wood (cedar, redwood, fir, pine, spruce, larch, or cypress) comes with varying price points with the biggest drawback to solid wood being cost. Wood siding also requires care – repainting every seven years or restained every three to five years. Hardboard siding products usually have 15- to 25-year warranties.

Insulated Siding: is vinyl siding with form-fitted expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation permanently built into the back side of the double-four courses of vinyl siding. The added R-value (thermal performance) of EPS is R-2 to R-2.7.

Cedar Siding: is beautiful, natural, and rustic, and can last up to 30 years, but does need to be treated every five years or so to prevent rot and mildew.

Aluminum Siding:
For low-cost, low-maintenance siding alternatives, nothing beats vinyl or aluminum. Aluminum durable and while won’t crack like vinyl, it can dent, and may require painting every once in a while. It is fireproof, won’t rot or corrode, and is also termite-proof.
