Boulder Siding Contractors – About Siding

What is Siding? Siding and wall cladding is the exterior material applied to the walls of a house or other building meant to shed water, protect the walls from the effects of weather, insulate, and is a key in the aesthetics of the structure. Some walls such as solid brickwork and masonry veneer are not covered with siding, but some buildings such as log buildings can have siding added. Siding may be formed of horizontal or vertical boards, shingles, or sheet materials. In all cases, avoiding wind and rain infiltration through the joints is a major challenge, met by overlapping, covering or sealing the joints, or by creating an interlocking joint such as a tongue and groove or rabbet. Since building materials expand and contract with changing temperature and humidity, it is not practical to make rigid joints between the siding elements so they often leak.

Siding may be made of wood, metal, plastic (vinyl), masonry, or composite materials. It may be attached directly to the building structure (studs in the case of wood construction), or to an intermediate layer of wood (boards, planks, plywood, oriented strand board) called sheathing   An intermediate air/moisture barrier such as housewrap or felt paper may be applied to the sheathing as an air/moisture barrier.

Boulder Siding Contractors – About Steel Siding

Steel siding is resilient and comes in several textures and colors.  It is an excellent top-of-the-line choice for your home’s exterior.  It is resistant to the ever-changing elements and unyielding to thermal expansion, warping and buckling. It is practically maintenance free and can be easily cleaned with soap and water. Metal will not crack or shatter due to hail or cold weather. Steel is much stronger than vinyl, offering the best wind protection available. Steel siding is fire-resistant and doesn’t burn.  It is environmentally friendly and easily recycled.  Ask Carlson Siding about your options for Steel Siding.

Boulder Siding Contractor Carlson Siding also offers Cedarwood Steel Siding

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.

Boulder Siding Contractor Carlson Siding – Cedarwood Product Features

Boulder Siding Contractor Carlson Siding and Construction

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.

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.

Added Dimension Cedarwood’s generously proportioned 1/2″ butt height adds greater dimension and style with dramatic shadow lines.

Enduring Protection
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.

Smooth Finished Look While fiber cement and compressed particle boards typically require caulked joints, Cedarwood’s “seams” are crisp and clean.

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.

Simple Upkeep
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.

How to Clean and Maintain Steel Siding

Basic Cleaning
A bucket, garden hose, laundry detergent such as Tide (about 1/3 cup to a gallon of water), and a soft brush are the best tools to use to maintain and clean metal siding. For grease spots or heavy grime, try using a non-abrasive cleanser such as Simple Green, Spic-N-Span, or Zud Heavy Duty Cleanser powder.

Heavy-duty Cleaning
Mineral spirits are best for removing old caulking, tar, wood sap, and similar problem areas. Extremely troublesome areas may require some light scraping with a putty knife, but be careful not to scar the siding.

Always clean from the bottom up, and start the task before the sun heats the siding.

Boulder Siding Contractors – About Vinyl Siding

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.

Boulder Vinyl Siding Care & Maintenance….

  • Wash It
    Give your vinyl siding a good cleaning at least once yearly.  Be prepared with a hose, a stiff-bristle brush, a bucket & sponge, and a mild detergent such as laundry soap or a TSP substitute. After scrubbing the surfaces using the listed items, rinse with water. 
  • Clear It
    Vinyl siding is very durable and doesn’t rot or wear in the same way as wood, however it can still crack or puncture. You can help keep your siding in good shape by trimming shrubbery and trees away from the house so they don’t come into contact with the siding and damage it.
  • Inspect It
    Inspect and investigate any suspicious streaking or staining that appears on the vinyl siding as it may be an indication of concealed moisture related problems from another source.  Because the screws or  nails securing the siding to the wall lose their holding power in rotted wood, loose areas of siding are another warning sign.
  • Don’t Bash It
    Be careful where you park your bicycle, lawn mower, or snowblower. Vinyl doesn’t dent , but it can crack or break, especially when rendered brittle by cold weather. Call Carlson Siding to replace any damaged sections as soon as you can.
  • Don’t Melt It
    Vinyl has a low melting point and is slow to burn. Make sure your barbecue and patio torches and any other sources of high heat are a safe distance away from the wall.
  • Secure It
    Colorado can be especially subject to high winds which can pull any loose siding off a structure, so be sure it is firmly attached.  If you find yourself in need of repair – give Carlson Siding a call…!
