More Than Just A roofing Company
Do You Need New Siding?
Origin Exteriors is a locally-owned company based in Lebanon, Ohio who specializes in all aspects of the exterior of your home or commercial building. This includes new siding which not only improves the look and overall curb appeal of your home but also protects it from the elements. Storms can damage your siding much in the same way they damage your roof. If you have pieces of siding that are missing, cracked or bent it could be leaving your home vulnerable to water damage and pests.
The Importance of Siding
Properly installed and functional siding is meant to protect your home from rain, hail, wind storms and many other elements. Along with your roof, your siding is your home’s first line of defense against nature’s elements. When your siding is damaged or even just worn out from the passage of time it may be letting water into your walls, which can lead to mold and water damage all the way into your wall studs.
Having broken or missing siding pieces also invites mice, rats and a wide variety of insects into the walls of your home. Pests like these have ways of getting into your home even when your siding is intact, so the last thing you want to do is make it even easier for them.
New siding will not only protect your home from the above mentioned elements but it will also drastically improve your curb appeal and make your home easier to sell when you decide to move on. If you were buying a home, wouldn’t you rather buy one with new siding than one with siding that hasn’t been touched in 30 years?
The Most Popular Siding Styles
Below are a few of the most popular and widely used siding options. Our siding contractors will go over the siding options with you and help you choose the right siding for your building.
One of the most widely used choices for single-family home renovations, offering a traditional and timeless look is the lap siding style which can be installed horizontally, vertically, or in combination. Siding planks come in durable high-grade materials of wood (cedar or hemlock), fiber cement, vinyl, or aluminum.
Shingles and Shakes
Using siding shingles and shakes can be the perfect way to add character and warmth to a home. You can install them on feature walls or gables, or even the entire house for a rustic-style cottage or ranch. There is an array of thicknesses, lengths, and grades available in materials such as fiber cement, cedar, and vinyl.
For those desiring a contemporary look with minimalistic features, siding panels are an excellent option. Available in various sizes and formats, this siding style usually involves cutting and sizing on-site to ensure the perfect fit. Common panel profiles include Board and Batten, Easy Trim Reveal, and Open Joint Cladding. Rough-sawn, smooth-sided, fiber-cement, and pressed hardboard are some of the options available when it comes to formats.
Cladding is a widely used architectural style for both commercial projects and residential designs. It offers an attractive timber-like appearance, but without the need for maintenance. This modern look can be utilized for creating stylish facades adding aesthetic charm to your house and promoting less upkeep of the exterior siding. With our cladding, you will enjoy a sophisticated transformation of your space. For improved rain protection, ask our home exterior specialists about our cladding options.
