Types of siding

Wood siding

There are several types of siding available to the homeowner today. However, wood remains a popular product in North American homes. Wood gives your house a unique and complementary look to the surrounding natural beauty. Not only does it have the aesthetic appeal, it’s practical properties give the ability to “breathe” which means it won’t trap unpleasant smells in your home or emit harmful materials.

The pleasant smell of wood is known for its positive effects on our nervous system and as a result is associated with the reduction of stress. We offer wood siding installation for Pine, Spruce, Fir, and Cedar.

AL13 panel system

The system is cut to fit and snaps together on site, reducing costs, installation and lead times. The system does not require prefabrication and can be installed on any type of structure. This system differs from other ACM (Aluminum Composite Panel) systems in that it is a tab-over system.

The panels are secured by the snap-lock fasteners. Panels are not welded or formed during construction.  This allows for each panel to expand and contract across a broad temperature spectrum without causing buckling or oil-canning.
