Siding is one of the most important aspects of your home. Not only does it impact the curb appeal of your house, but it’s also your first and most important defense against the elements.
Don’t trust this critical aspect of home improvement to just anyone. Instead, only use the best of the best.
At Russell Roofing Company, we are true siding experts. Our siding professionals are trained in all the latest siding techniques, and our work comes with a guarantee so you know you know you’re getting all you deserve.
A good siding job starts with materials. In modern siding, there are a number of different choices when it comes to materials, such as wood, vinyl, fiber, stucco, and more.
When you hire Russell Roofing Company, you’ll get:
Next to materials, the most important aspect of house siding is the installation process. Correctly installing siding requires patience and expertise, two qualities that describe all of our siding professionals.
At Russell Roofing Company, we take installation seriously by:
There is no blanket answer to this. In modern construction, the most popular siding material choice is vinyl. It’s durable, lightweight, and fairly inexpensive. The installation process is also slightly more straightforward and many people like the clean, modern look it provides.
For older homes, however, installing vinyl siding may take away from the antique look of the house. In these cases, cedar shingles are often the preferred choice. They are treated to protect against the elements and provide solid insulation. And they look great, too. However, the installation process is slightly more involved and will cost a bit more.
Another option is stucco or brick. This is by far the most expensive material to use, and it also requires special installation, both of which drive costs up. In the end, budget and personal taste will be the deciding factors when it comes to which siding material you use.
Although this will vary from house to house, every 30-40 years is a good number to keep in mind. But if you live in a harsh environment, this time period may be shorter. It also depends which materials you use. Wood shingles are fantastic, but they eventually warp and break off. Vinyl usually lasts longer, somewhere in the region of 50 years.
To decide if it’s time to have your siding replaced, give us a call and ask for a free estimate. We’ll come take a look at your existing siding and offer suggestions, as well as provide you with a quote for new siding so that you can.
This is an answer everyone wants to know, but it’s nearly impossible to say until we’ve had a chance to look at your property and also talk about materials. On average, siding jobs usually cost around $12 per square foot. But the range here is immense. If you use more economical materials, that can drop down to just a few dollars. Higher quality vinyls and stucco, or specialty jobs such as shingles, can also drive costs up.
Expect to spend around several thousand dollars or more for new siding on an average sized home. But don’t pay all this at once. Instead, put a downpayment down and finance the rest. Most siding contractors, including Russell Roofing Company, offer financing options to help you manage this project. In the end, it’s an investment.
