Siding FAQ

Protect your home from the elements and invasive mold with the right type of residential siding. Our licensed siding contractor in St. Louis, MO, is ready to answer any question you may have. We serve a variety of communities in and around St. Louis, Missouri, and Minneapolis, Minnesota. We have the experience and the attention to detail you are looking for in a siding and window installer service.

What’s the best type of siding in Minneapolis?

The best siding product is the one that specifically addresses your needs, your budget, and the unique conditions in your area. That said, we have recently come across a relatively new type of siding known as insulation-backed vinyl siding. We’ve discovered that insulation-backed vinyl siding in the Twin Cities service area holds up incredibly well. It looks amazing, doesn’t fade, chip, or peel, and it goes a step further than other siding by actually increasing your home’s insulation (great for saving money on energy bills). But to find out which siding is truly best for your situation, give us a call.

Why should I replace my siding? Why is siding so important?

Siding is the first, last, and the best defense against the elements. If your siding is damaged, old, cracked, or chipped, you could be setting yourself up for some very costly repairs. The reality is damage is probably already occurring behind the siding… where you can’t see it. By the time you see any outward manifestation of a problem, it’s probably too late. Don’t set yourself up for future problems. Give our location in St. Charles a call. We’d be happy to come out and inspect your siding and answer any questions you may have.

What is the standard warranty on siding in St. Paul?

It depends on the type of siding and the manufacturer. That said, most of the siding we install comes with a lifetime warranty.

Does thicker siding really mean better siding in Fenton?

Honestly, about the only thing thicker siding provides you with is a higher price tag. Don’t let any company tell you otherwise. While thicker siding may help in the overall rigidity of the material, thickness is not a guarantee of quality, durability, value, or performance. Don’t be fooled and don’t get sold on a product you don’t want and don’t need. Give us a call. Let one of our siding experts sit down with you and explain your options. That way we can match your needs and your budget to the perfect siding.

Given what you’ve said about there being no “perfect” siding product, what exactly should I be looking for?

That’s a great question, but not an easy one to answer. There are just so many considerations for choosing a siding product for your home.

Some key items to look for and to discuss with your vendor:

  • Type of Paneling Architecture and Its Projection
  • Type of Locking Mechanism
  • Type and Direction of the Grain
  • Capstock Formulation
  • Type of Nailing Hem Design
  • Type Chemical Makeup and Consistency – including UV Blockers

Your geographic location makes a big difference with regard to the best siding option for your home. The best siding product for a client in St. Paul may not be the right option for a homeowner that is miles away in Missouri. We serve a series of communities in both Missouri and Minnesota, and we understand what works in both environments.

All of these items have a large impact on durability and overall value. For example, the type of nailing hem design can determine your siding’s wind-resistance capabilities. This is particularly important to those homes subject to tornadoes. Again, it really does take a siding expert to sit down and figure out what is going to work best for you.
