There are four major types of siding; wood, aluminum, vinyl, and cement fiber. Each of these can dramatically change the appearance of your home in Englewood, CO from one to the other and it is important to understand the differences that each bring to the appearance of the Englewood home.
Wood siding is the oldest type of siding out of the four; however, it can provide an authentic look to your home in Englewood, CO. Wood can easily be customized into a wide range of shapes and sizes to give your Englewood home the look of authenticity that you need. Wood also allows for a wide range of colors because it can be stained or painted. There is a down side to wood, however, which may make you want to steer away. Wood is susceptible to water damage and insect damage.
Aluminum siding requires little maintenance and can easily last for ten years or more. It is immune to almost any kind of damage except for paint and dent damage; however, it can be coated in vinyl and plastic to protect against this as well. There are disadvantages to aluminum siding though. You cannot customize aluminum siding as much as you can wood siding.
Vinyl siding is the most common siding of the four today. It is cheaper than aluminum siding and does not have to be painted, making it easier to maintain than aluminum siding. Vinyle siding has one down side though. It becomes weak in cold weather so it is not recommended to be used in cold weather atmospheres.
Cement fiber is the most recent development out of the four and is the most durable out of the four. It is designed to have the same customizable capabilities as wood and to be durable like the aluminum and vinyl siding. Cement fiber; however, is more expensive than aluminum or vinyl.

Englewood Siding Installation
Before the siding is applied, the existing structure will be inspected for water intrusion, termites and rot. A weather resistant barrier is recommended to create an extra layer of moisture and wind protection. Each piece of siding is then securely attached to your home, providing one of the best exteriors available.
Englewood Siding Replacement
Don't Settle for a Quick Siding Fix! The quick way isn't always the best way. Covering up old siding with new vinyl siding might be the quickest way to put new siding on your home, but in reality you could be covering up a problem, not solving it. The best way to deal with the rotting hardboards and wood is to start with a clean slate and have LifeTime Exteriors remove it. The right way to do the job is to remove the original problem and replace it with new siding.
