Siding Choices

Aesthetically, what is on the exterior of your house creates the first and often lasting impression of your home. Functionally, the siding material protects your house’s structure from the elements, mainly rain, and wind-driven moisture.  Siding should be selected based on cost, aesthetics, durability, maintenance requirements, and environmental impact. Shew’s Top Quality Roofing and Guttering offer a wide selection of exterior cladding products.

Fiber Cement

For homeowners that want the look of wood but don’t want the hassles and costs associated with it, fiber-cement siding may be a satisfactory alternative. Fiber-cement siding is more durable than wood, termite-resistant, water-resistant and non-combustible. It is composed of cement, sand, and cellulose fiber. The cost of fiber cement siding is more than vinyl and less than stucco and wood siding. Unless top coat is applied in the factory, siding may need to be painted every four or five years. Fiber-cement siding is appropriate for hot and humid climates because it is resistant to rot, fungus and termite infestation. It also has good weathering characteristics, strength, and impact resistance.

With our scientifically advance engineered wood siding, homeowners can get the look of real cedar, plus the added durability and weather resistance that comes with a highly technical wood-looking product. The rich detail, deep textures and warm beautiful look of this engineered wood siding give every home that look of real craftsmanship. And as an added “plus,” homeowners who have engineered wood siding installed don’t have to worry about dealing with the constant upkeep of painting real wood siding, or have to worry about the siding rotting, cracking or being infested by termites.


Aluminum Siding

The precursor to vinyl, aluminum siding was first marketed about 50 years ago as a long-lasting, maintenance-free alternative to traditional sidings such as clapboard or wood shingles. Since aluminum is rot-proof, waterproof, fireproof, corrosion-resistant, impervious to termites and able to withstand years of exposure to the elements, the siding itself will last virtually indefinitely if simply left alone. Aluminum is a painted metal and may require painting over time. An additional consideration of aluminum is that it is susceptible to denting and scratching.


Steel Siding

One of America’s most trusted materials is steel because of its strength and durability. However, when you combine steel with the low-maintenance advantages of vinyl and the beauty of natural wood, and homeowners can have siding that not only provides solid home protection but also lasts a lifetime. To keep it looking new, just rinse occasionally with a garden hose. Plus, be mindful of the time and money you’ll be saving in upkeep. Steel siding won’t rust, crack, chip, peel, blister or flake. It won’t warp like ordinary siding. It can withstand Mother Nature’s harshest weather, including hail. And it’s fire and termite resistant. And regardless of the home’s architecture, steel siding comes in a variety of styles, colors, and accessories to suit every taste out there.
