HOW IT WORKS
Several days before we begin your siding project, we will notify you that we will drop off a dumpster and the materials
We will remove all old pieces of siding and place it in the dumpster. We will inspect the wood and replace any damaged pieces to ensure longevity in
We will place a protective base of material on top of the wood before installing the siding. This will help waterproof
We will place the new siding on top of
We will do a final walkthrough to ensure you are satisfied with our work.
TYPES OF SIDING
WHITE CEDAR SIDING
With its charming, rustic look and natural resistance to insects and decay, cedar siding is an attractive and practical option for your home’s exterior. White cedar siding only comes in one style, so its design possibilities are limited. However, when you want a light look for your home’s exterior, white cedar weathers to an attractive silver-gray shade. Because of its light color and weathered look, white cedar is often used in coastal areas. White cedar siding is available in different grades, which affect the overall look of your home’s exterior. Clear grades, which are usually designated as A or B, have a fine, smooth appearance that shows very few imperfections and growth characteristics. These grades tend to hold finishes better and give your exterior a more modern look.
RED CEDAR SIDING
Red Cedar shingles have a much higher durability than the white variety. Once installed, they can last several lifetimes. They have high weather resistance properties and a high resistance to moisture. This makes them ideal for roofing in areas of high humidity. Red cedar contains tannic acid, a natural preservative which helps to extend the longevity of the shingles. The high water repellency ensures that your shingles do not warp. Red cedar shingles give your roof excellent dimensional stability. They also have a unique cellular composition which captures tiny pockets of air and improves the insulation capacity of the shingles. You can enjoy a cooler house during the summer and more warmth indoors in the winter. This makes red cedar shingles a good choice if you want to enhance energy efficiency in your home. The tannic acid in red cedar causes the shingles to eventually darken and become blotchy. Unlike the white shingles, you cannot paint red cedar shingles. They have a poor absorption capacity and do not readily catch stain or paint. The shingles also cost more than the white
Vinyl siding is made from a PVC plastic. Unlike wood or cedar, it won’t rot or flake. Vinyl is also less expensive to purchase and install than most other siding materials. Unfortunately, even the best vinyl siding can crack, split or look dull after a few years. Vinyl produces hazardous byproducts; it will release toxic chemicals when burned. Vinyl siding is water resistant, not waterproof. Because of the way that it is installed, water can sometimes get between the siding and the surface of your home. This can cause infestation and mold problems.
FIBER CEMENT SIDING
In appearance fiber cement siding most often consists of overlapping horizontal boards, imitating wooden siding, clapboard and imitation shingles. Thermal resistance and sound transmission vary greatly between fiber cement products. Fiber cement sheet products rate poorly in thermal resistance and sound transmission and separate wall insulation is highly recommended. Generally the thicker and denser the product the better resistance it will have to temperature and sound transmission. The external cladding products require very little maintenance once installed and painted. The thicker/denser fiber cement products have excellent impact resistance but the thinner less dense products need to be protected from impact. Compared to wooden siding, fiber cement is not susceptible to termites or rot.

“Roofing and Siding of Cape Cod replaced the cedar shingles on our home. They responded quickly to our request for an estimate and provided the info regarding our options. The work was completed in the time frame discussed, and the workmanship was excellent. I would definitely recommend this company.”
“They did an amazing job replacing the roof on my house. They were accomodating around my schedule and showed up when they said they would. They didn’t cut any corners, they put flashing/starter strips/ice and rain where it needed to be. They were very quick and i would definitely use them again.”
