Choosing the Right Siding from your Firestone Siding Contractor Carlson
When selecting siding, there are six basic issues to consider:
Is it less expensive to re-paint my home?
Yes for a quick fix for your most valuable asset. For a permanent solution for your home, siding is the better overall value. When you consider the saved maintenance costs, energy savings, increased curb appeal, overall durability, and increased resale value - siding is the sensible choice.
What type of siding should I consider?
Vinyl siding's quality and benefits have made it the most popular siding installed in America today. Steel siding is another high quality siding option for homeowners.
How low-maintenance is siding?
All you need is a garden hose to keep your exterior vinyl siding looking great for years. Often, ordinary rainfall is enough to keep vinyl siding clean, although you might need to wash it periodically with a garden hose in areas not exposed directly to rain.
Is there a “best time of year” to have siding
No. Siding can be installed at any time of year. You can begin enjoying the improved appearance of your home and experience the convenience of a low maintenance exterior right away.
How do I choose a reputable contractor?
Always get references and look for online reviews, too. The number of years in business is also a good indicator of quality – the truly bad apples can only last so long before it catches up with them.
What about the trim on my
Covering the sidewalls for your home is only half the job. The fascia and overhang areas will need to be protected as well. We install our Geon materials on these important trim areas.
Vinyl siding is tough and comes in a large variety of colors and textures. Because the color is throughout the material, nicks and scratches don't show up. Sophisticated manufacturing techniques create products that do a surprisingly fine job of mimicking wood-grain lap siding, wood shingles and even stone. Vinyl siding is lightweight and, in many instances, can be installed directly over existing materials, so it's a good retrofit option. Because it's easy to handle, vinyl installation can be installed quickly, saving labor costs. The material requires little or no maintenance, and dirt simply washes off. Vinyl Siding never needs repainting. Vinyl has relatively low cost compared to other siding materials.
Vinyl siding is manufactured to deliver greater durability, rigidity and wind resistance; more attractive, fade-resistant colors; more authentic touches and historical details.

From the first glance, Cedarwood steel siding exudes elegance. Its remarkably realistic cedar appearance so closely resembles genuine cedar that it's difficult to tell the difference. The secret is in our patented Color Fusion coating process that blends warm browns and natural hues in non-repeating patterns to create the variegated coloring and visual appeal of cedar.
High Dimensional Stability Rigid steel panels resist buckling and the wavy appearance that can result from expansion and contraction caused by extreme weather changes. Cedarwood also will subtly conceal flaws in the exterior's substructure, keeping wall lines exceptionally smooth and straight.
Commanding Steel Strength Cedarwood's rugged steel construction is virtually impervious to outdoor elements. And unlike wood, compressed particle board or fiber cement, it won't absorb moisture. It's also resistant to dents, warping, fire, termites, chalking, fading, and brittleness in cold weather.
Added Dimension Cedarwood's generously proportioned 1/2" butt height adds greater dimension and style with dramatic shadow lines.
Smooth Finished Look While fiber cement and compressed particle boards typically require caulked joints, Cedarwood's "seams" are crisp and clean.
Cedarwood steel delivers premium results when it comes to long-lasting beauty and protection for your home. A specially formulated Kynar 500® coating provides an exceptionally strong finish that will resist staining, mildew and dirt. It also is warranted against excessive chalking and color change for 25 years, despite exposure to harsh weather.
Taking care of Cedarwood steel siding will require very little upkeep. Unlike fiber cement that may require periodic recaulking and repainting, or wood siding that typically needs repainting every five to seven years, Cedarwood demands not much more than an occasional rinse with a garden hose - perfect for today's lifestyle.
Protecting Your Investment
When you consider the time and money spent repainting year after year, you'll see why steel siding is a smart choice. Cedarwood not only will create an attractive, worry-free exterior, but will enhance the curb appeal of your home. And in today's resale market, a beautiful, low-maintenance finish can be a valuable amenity.
Enjoy your beautiful home for years to come!
