About Washington, DC Siding Companies

Installing or replacing your home’s siding, which is also known as exterior cladding, can be one of the most cost-effective ways to improve the look of your house while decreasing the work and expense associated with exterior maintenance. And due to innovations in the exterior cladding industry, homeowners have a wide variety of environmentally friendly siding materials to choose from based on climate, desired aesthetic and budget, and average level of maintenance.

Siding Materials and Insulated Siding

Those materials include vinyl, fiber cement, wood (such as pine, oak, and redwood), engineered wood, masonry (such as stucco, brick, and stone), masonry veneers, aluminum, and steel.

While vinyl is one of the most popular exterior siding options, DC homeowners should look for thick, high-quality vinyl products that carry a long-term warranty. Vinyl siding, like wood, tends to expand in high summer temperatures and contract in the winter, which can cause cracking. Note that damages to siding, including cracks, holes, rotting or moldy areas, and warped planks, should be addressed immediately, as these issues can lead to higher energy costs as well as trapped moisture and mold growth inside the home.

Also because of Washington, DC’s hot summers and cold winters, homeowners may want to ask a siding professional about insulated siding. In addition to the low-maintenance benefits of traditional vinyl siding, insulated siding can help improve your home’s energy efficiency and work together with other energy-saving measures to lower your utility bills.

Although siding installation can be completed year-round (barring extreme weather), we recommend scheduling for the fall or spring, so your home will be ready to face the heat or cold of the upcoming season.

Choosing a Siding Contractor

Putting siding on a home is a significant investment, so homeowners should educate themselves about the installation quality offered by various contractors. A good way to do this is to look in person at one or more of the jobs completed by the companies being considered for hire. Rather than simply surveying the overall appearance of the siding, pay close attention to the trim and small details. These areas often prove to be a more accurate gauge of the quality of care given to the entire job.

While gathering quotes from multiple companies is also a good practice when choosing a contractor, comparing prices alone, without taking into account the quality of materials or workmanship, is the easiest way to overpay. The longevity of a home’s siding largely depends on proper installation, so it is important to hire an experienced, neighbor-approved contractor.
