Siding For Your Home
New siding will make your home look brand new. Siding protects your home from the elements and keeps your home at a comfortable temperature due to the insulation it provides. Without your siding, you would be defenseless against cold winters and hot summers, and we know what a cold winter is here in Silver Spring, MD. Siding also boosts your curb appeal! It comes in a multitude of colors and a variety of materials. You can select vinyl, fiber cement, wood, or stone veneer siding. You can choose textured for a more rustic feel or go with more modern finishes. Replacement siding adds value to your home. Apex Construction LLC uses only quality materials from reputable manufacturers such as JamesHardie and Mastic.
Don’t forget to inspect your siding periodically, especially after a severe storm. If your siding becomes damaged it can allow water to seep in causing damage as well as allowing insects to make themselves at home. Our siding contractors can do an inspection and make any repairs necessary. We service areas from Silver Spring to Gaithersburg to Columbia, MD.
Types of Siding
Vinyl- Let’s start with vinyl siding installation, the most requested siding from homeowners. And for good reason. Vinyl siding is weather resistant and budget friendly. It’s virtually maintenance free needing only soap and water to keep it looking brand new. Vinyl siding never needs painting so that’s less maintenance and gives you more hours to spend with friends and family. Some vinyl siding options are insulated adding more protection and more energy efficiency. You can choose lap siding, shakes, scallops, or vertical siding for many design choices. Most popular is lap siding that runs horizontal, but board and batten that runs vertical is used quite often. Color choices went from a handful when vinyl was first introduced to now darker colors and a huge assortment to choose from.
Fiber Cement- Known as HardiePlank. Fiber cement siding is a beautiful siding that looks like wood. Just like wood, it can be painted any color you like but doesn’t rot or get destroyed by insects. It does cost quite a bit more than vinyl siding but it’s a choice many homeowners like.
Wood- Wood siding requires routine maintenance in order to keep it in good shape. Insects such as carpenter bees, carpenter ants, powder post beetles and termites can do a number if you don’t keep your wood siding sealed, stained and protected. Although wood creates a beautiful siding, keep in mind it requires a lot of maintenance.
Stone Veneer- Many homeowners like this option for accent walls such as the front porch or areas around the front door for example. Little to no maintenance is required making it a good option for many. Apex Construction can complete any quality siding replacement at your home. Call us today to schedule your service.
