The Premier Chicago Siding Contractor
Siding does far more than beautify your home. It protects the interior from the ravages of Chicago weather and ensures your energy bills stay within reason thanks to its insulation value. Yes, siding is a great option – no matter the type you choose. The options for color and style are endless, giving homeowners a limitless range of choices and that’s before the materials are even discussed. From vinyl to wood, the selections available, and their tremendous durability and curb appeal, will add years to your home’s lifetime and keep you worry-free for the duration.
Types of Siding
Siding Types – Wood Siding
If you currently own, or are thinking of purchasing, a home with wood siding, you’re probably a fan of older structures with some real character and history. That’s where you find the most wood siding in use – traditional architecture. It takes quite a bit more maintenance and care to keep wood siding in working order, so it’s usually replaced with a vinyl or aluminum siding during the structure’s lifetime making original wood a rarity in Chicago. Chicago Flat Roof Company offers a wide selection of wood siding in a range of styles, textures, and finishes. While it’s a beautiful way to enclose a home, there are some very serious dangers that have to be avoided to maintain the aesthetic and functional value of the wood – including insects, moisture, rot, and warping. Without regular staining, replacement of trouble boards, and constant monitoring, your wood siding – be they planks or clapboards – won’t stay healthy for very long. Partnering with professionals, like the ones at Chicago Flat Roof Company, can help extend that lifetime for years with regular maintenance, so make the call to work with the area’s best wood siding contractor.
Siding Types – Aluminum Siding
Aluminum siding has become more and more popular over the years due to its incredible durability and low maintenance costs. Aluminum siding is applied to your home in strips with both the top and bottom sealed to prevent moisture entry. It comes in every imaginable color and can be installed both horizontally and vertically. With aluminum siding, there’s no need to paint and it’s relatively inexpensive for traditional aluminum. The modern vinyl-coated siding cuts the noise and denting down to a minimum, but costs a bit more to purchase and install. Chicago Flat Roof Company’s knowledgeable staff is happy to discuss the benefits of modern aluminum siding with you, so give us a call today at (312) 667-4440 to learn more about it.
Siding Types – Vinyl Siding
Vinyl siding was introduced after aluminum and aimed to solve some of the issues found with the older materials. In many ways, vinyl is the best solution available for encasing the outside of your home. It’s relatively inexpensive, it seals well against moisture, and it doesn’t need to be painted. Easily America’s most-used siding material, vinyl siding can be found in all states and all climates. Its one weakness is cold impacts. As with many modern materials, extreme cold can cause it to become brittle and crack when struck. When damage is done, the only real remedy is new siding to cover the spot. That’s another reason vinyl is the material of choice – cheap replacement. So, if you’re in the market for vinyl siding, call the premier vinyl siding contractor in all of Illinois – Chicago Flat Roof Company.
Siding Types – Cement Siding
It may sound strange and be difficult to envision, but cement siding is the new “green” siding alternative and it’s sweeping the nation. Made from recycled materials, cement siding is incredibly durable and can be molded to take on the texture and appearance of nearly any material you can imagine – including wood. It also lends itself to unique design elements to be included since it can be molded in almost any shape. Cement siding won’t ever rot, be damaged by insects, or suffer from moisture of any kind. It’s easy to install and nearly indestructible – which is awesome – but that durability and lifespan comes with a cost. Cement siding can be the most expensive option available, yet homeowners have to take the long view and realize it’s probably cheaper over the lifetime of your structure. Call us today to speak with a cement siding specialist and learn all the ways it can make your home a better place to live.
