Board & Batten

Board and batten siding is typically used for residential homes in the countryside. It consists of long, vertical boards that vary in size. It can be designed with many different types of lumber including cedar, pine, redwood, and more. This type of siding is durable and easy to maintain. 

Fiber Cement

There are many advantages to selecting fiber cement siding. The material is very durable, affordable, easy to maintain, and offers an aesthetically pleasing look. Fiber cement is made by mixing sand, cement and cellulose. It is extremely versatile, as it can be shaped in many ways. It can also be customized to the color of your choosing. Fiber cement is resistant to fires, moisture, termites and other insects, and rot.

Reverse Board & Batten

Reverse board and batten is simply the opposite of board and batten. The boards are narrow while the batten is wider. This is a good choice for people with any eye for design. It creates a country design that can also appear contemporary. The siding is durable and can be easily replaced in the event that it is damaged. 

Sidewall Shakes

If you’re looking to add some rustic and rugged charm to your home, we recommend sidewall shakes! This type of siding is resistant to harsh weather and lasts a long time. One of our popular options is our red cedar shakes. 

Soffit Systems

Soffit systems provide ventilation in a more discreet way. They come in a variety of styles, colors, and sizes. The circulation of air helps prevent rotting and decay that can be caused by moisture buildup. It can also prevent hot air from entering your attic during the warmer months and moisture from accumulating in the winter months. 

Steel & Aluminum Siding 

Steel and aluminum have become popular choices for siding. Steel is customizable, long-lasting, and resistant to rot, insects, fire, and dents, as it is a heavier material. Aluminum resists dirt, stains, heat, and dents. The paint is durable and the material is lightweight, making it easy to install.
