Virginia Beach Roofing & Siding Knows Siding
Siding is something that can add dimension, definition, and color to your house. There are many options when it comes to siding that can help you to create a specific look. Aesthetics are undoubtedly important, but you also want to consider the durability of the material you choose, how resistant it is to water, how easy it is to install and how versatile it is.
Siding offers you protection, and Virginia Beach Roofing & Siding knows how important it is to use superior quality products and install them correctly. We understand the importance of adding certain high-end materials to your home to highlight special features.
When Is It Time to Remove Siding? Virginia Beach Roofing & Siding Knows!
Can you see fungus, seams of your siding separating, the caulking is non-existent or failing? Consider a replacement if your siding is delaminated, swelling, or in otherwise bad condition and the boards are not lying flat against your home. When the paint fails because of moisture or moisture inside your home, these are all signs of your siding failing.
Can new siding be installed by Virginia Beach Roofing & Siding directly over top of the old siding? No, the existing siding must permanently be removed. One of the main reasons is to examine the condition of the materials below the siding and ensure that the new siding is being installed properly. There really would be nothing worse than having your siding replaced only to have the new siding fail because it was installed over top of the old siding.
What are the Different Types of Siding Installed by Virginia Beach Roofing & Siding?
There are many different types of siding, but the main ones that Virginia Beach Roofing & Siding installs include:
This product is versatile, affordable, and easy to maintain, making it one of the top siding products in the USA. Some homeowners think that vinyl siding has a “plastic” appearance, but the fact that it is available in a wide range of styles and colors makes it a prevalent choice in our experience. Aside from that, manufacturers have stepped up their game to compete in offering the best possible product.
This siding is manufactured to take on the look of wood, stucco, or masonry work. Fiber-cement is a more popular choice for many homeowners because it does not require much maintenance, is fire-proof, and is resistant to termites. The range of styles and textures is extensive, with many choices for factory painting and finishes. Fiber-cement siding in homes built before 1990 could experience moisture-related issues because that type of siding contains asbestos and should be removed by professional abatement contractors.
Wood siding is mainly used for cottages, Cape Cod-style homes, or bungalow-style homes. Virginia Beach Roofing & Siding knows that wood siding installation can offer a vibrant look to your home. It can also last for a long time if you do the maintenance. If you consider installing this type of siding, you should know that you will have to maintain it, including painting it or staining it to protect it against the weather. Wood siding that is maintained can last as long as 100 years.
Wood siding is available in beveled siding options, shakes, clapboard, and shingles. Clapboard is planks of wood that are installed horizontally and have an upper piece overlapping a lower part. Clapboard is more uniform in look but is thinner than shakes. Shingles offer a smooth but consistent look and can be cut into many shapes, adding visual appeal to your home. Virginia Beach Roofing & Siding understands the need for visual appeal, and we always install our siding with a high degree of professionalism.
