Roof and Siding Installations: What You Need To Know About Protecting Your Home

Choosing the right type of siding for your home can always be a tough decision, but knowing your climate and the environment you live in can help narrow down your choices. Professional roofers will explain that during the process of the siding installation, repairs may be required once they peel back the exterior layers. Many aging homes will require some kind of restoration, depending on the protection it received with its previous siding installation.

 

The most reputable roofers will do a detailed examination of the entire home, inside and out, addressing all possible issues during the process of the roof replacement and siding replacement or installation. Once their examination is complete, they will inform you of all needs that must be met during the process. They’ll also give their recommendations as to which product will best protect your home from future deteriorations.

 

Your roofers will explain that there are three types of siding that are most popular for your home’s best protection options: cedar, vinyl, and fiber cement.

 

Each product is uniquely different in style and texture, but all three will provide excellent armor for your abode.

 

Starting with fiber cement siding, this product is a mixture of Portland cement and wood pulp. It is formed into long sheath boards, or shingle shaped, and is attached directly to your home with nails excessive in length. When it comes to vinyl siding, your roofers will tell you that it is made primarily of PVC, which is a very rigid plastic type of material. This is securely placed to the exterior wall of your home in such a way that will allow it to expand and contract with the ever changing environment. Even though this style has a vast variety of looks, it is not the best kept secret among the siding companies.

 

Finally, cedar siding is unquestionably one of the most beautiful and most durable types of siding available. It comes in a variety of shades and stains, as well as shapes and styles. Once properly cured, the cedar siding installation is completely shrink resistant; meaning, it will never lose its shape. Since cedar takes stains well and ages very gracefully, it grows more and more extraordinarily beautiful with every passing year. Given the rich beauty that cedar siding Seattle roofers often install, it’s no wonder this material is a top choice for homeowners. What’s more, the rich coloring is able to be preserved with just a routine power wash and a fresh sealant or stain.

 

Ordinarily, siding may not do much in terms of insulating your home. However, cedar siding provides its own insulation and noise reduction from the outside world. This type of siding is also a renewable resource which takes little energy to produce, is biodegradable, and will not rot. Finally, cedar siding can actually repel termites, carpenter ants, and mice, thus protecting your home for years to come.

 

Although you have several options at your disposal when choosing a new siding for your home, cedar siding is certainly one of the most popular materials picked by roofers and homeowners alike. Given all of its advantages, it’s easy to see why. That said, we’re here to help advise you on the right siding selection to fit your needs and your budget.

Side-Pro fixed an issue with some wavy sideboards on my home. The team that came out was fast, effective, professional -- and genuinely nice guys. They explained what they were doing, answered all my questions, and got the work done beautifully and ahead of schedule. Afterwards they followed up promptly to make sure I was satisfied and to let me know they were available for any future questions or concerns. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone needing similar work done.

Side Pro was a pleasure to work with from the start. I learned in the bid process that most siding and window companies are sales teams only and all the installation is sub-contracted out. It was important to me to use a firm that was accountable for the end to end job and Side Pro used full-time employees for my job. The sales person knew a lot about siding and gave me some great recommendations. He submitted a competitive price and then walked through the full job with me and the job foreman. Then the job foreman took over and was very responsive to all my questions and change orders over the course of project. The installation team was also excellent. They cleaned up every day and did really top notch work. I am very particular and they worked to understand what I was after and made it happen. Great job. The job site had COVID procedures posted, which were followed by the crew, and a safety officer dropped by on two occasions to check up on things. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better customer experience and recommend Side Pro to anyone considering new siding.

I needed crawl space vents installed with very short notice. Side-Pro set up an appointment and got the work done in a matter of days! The contractor who did the work busted his butt and was very nice. The work is excellent.
