Few Words About Siding Installation in Chicago

Are you considering putting siding on your home or replacing your current siding? If so, there are many factors to take into account. When choosing your siding, consider the following:

Weather

Your siding needs to be water resistant or water-proof in order to protect the structure of your home from water damage, mold and rot. Consider also how window your area is and if debris is likely to occasionally hit your siding as you may want to choose a siding option that is resistant to dents and holes from impact.

Appearance

You’re sure to have an idea of what you want your home to look like. Siding is versatile in color and texture so you can truly customize your siding. Vinyl siding comes in every color of the rainbow! If you are looking for siding that looks like brick, stone or other ‘specialty’ finishes your options will be limited.

Architecture

Depending on the style of your home, you may be limited in the siding types you can use – i.e. siding suitable for a one story bungalow may not be suitable for a historic three-story home.

Your Footprint

Some siding options are more ecologically friendly than others. Fiber cement and wood siding options are made from natural materials and are typically biodegradable yet have longevity as a siding choice.
