Siding Materials We Work With
Whether you own a historic home built in the last century or a piece of modern architecture, we can find the perfect siding materials that will match your home’s character in shape, color, style and composition. Our Maryland siding contractors are experienced in repair and replacement of the following siding materials:
- Vinyl siding
- Fiber cement siding
- Aluminum siding
- Cedar shake
Does your siding look like it has seen better days? Like most man-made materials, it wasn’t designed to last forever. And old or deteriorating siding is not only unattractive, but also inefficient in terms of protecting your home from the elements. Platinum Exteriors can perform professional siding replacement at an affordable price and in a short time frame. Siding replacement is also a great opportunity for many homeowners to re-imagine their home and improve its curb appeal. We can help you combine a variety of siding products to create a unique, yet cohesive look for your residence.
Alternatives to Vinyl Siding
A big portion of homes we conduct siding repairs or replacement on have vinyl siding. And there is nothing wrong with vinyl, but you can get similar features with a more authentic look from other siding materials. For example, fiber cement is extremely fire-resistant and can imitate wood boards or shingles with high precision. Metal siding, on the other hand, is virtually indestructible. If you are looking for a compromise between the looks, the quality and the cost, talk to our siding experts. We know that shopping for home improvement materials can be confusing, especially if it’s your first time, so we are happy to offer all the help you need.
Choosing the Right Siding
Besides the materials, you will have to make many other choices when it comes to the design of your home’s exterior, such as:
- Should you use shingles, boards or planks?
- Will vertical or horizontal siding look best?
- Which color should you go with?
- Should you combine several different styles of siding or go with the same one throughout?
- Shingles: square edge or half rounded?
This is just a small portion of the decisions you will have to make when replacing your siding. And keep in mind that the siding you choose at the end will ultimately affect both your home’s comfort and marketability to future home buyers. It’s worth getting a professional advice before you place your order, whether you choose to consult your real estate agent, your HOA or an experienced Maryland siding contractor like Platinum Exteriors.
