As one of the most popular choices in home siding materials, vinyl siding provides an appealing look for an inexpensive cost. It’s a great option to choose to give the appearance of quality wood at a fraction of the cost, all while maintaining impeccable durability.
Our vinyl siding is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and comes in almost any shade or color you could think of to give your home exactly the look you’ve always wanted. We use the highest-quality vinyl in the industry so you can rest assured it will stand against the test of time.
Insulated Vinyl Siding
Just like vinyl siding, insulated vinyl siding gives your home a high quality look at an affordable price. The biggest difference lays in the fact that insulated vinyl can help reduce your energy bills by over 20%. If you want to keep your house cool in the summer, or warm in the winter, insulated vinyl siding is the choice for you. It’s the most cost effective siding option available and comes in a wide array of styles, widths and colors. What’s more is that it’s easy to clean, never requires paint and is resistant to rot and pests.
While vinyl siding is a great alternative, nothing can give your home the classic appearance of wood siding like real wood siding. It’s designed to withstand the test of time by being resistant to cracking, rotting and peeling. At Len Roofing and Remodeling, we have a wide variety of wood siding for you to choose from. Some of which includes, designer shake, old mill shingle siding, cedar shake, pine, spruce and more. Call us today for a personalized inquiry.
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding is an extremely durable home siding material that is made of cement, sand and cellulose fibers. It’s available in dozens of shades and colors so you can find the perfect look for your home. It is a great option to choose if you’re looking for the authentic look of natural wood siding with increased durability to withstand harsh weather conditions.
Fiber cement siding has great added benefits including zero flame spread index, zero smoke development number and superior thermal properties. It’s resistant to mold, pests and water and is much stronger than vinyl siding. If you need something that can withstand harsh conditions, fiber cement siding is for you.
Louisiana Pacific Siding
Louisiana Pacific (LP) SmartSide Trim and Siding are impeccable siding options if you’re looking for traditional wood materials with increased durability for your home. It’s similar to Fiber Cement siding, but is much lighter and contains fewer seams. The wood used for this type of siding follows Sustainable Forest Initiative standards so that nothing used goes to waste and you get the authenticity of real wood.
In addition, LP siding has fungal and decay protection and can withstand extreme heat, cold, humidity and rainfall. It’s also quick to install, so you can enjoy the benefits sooner.
Soffit and Fascia Installation
Soffits are used to provide attic ventilation and water shedding from exterior walls. It’s technically considered the underside of a building, with the most common soffit being found under the eaves on the exterior of your home. These soffits close the space beneath the eave and come in a variety of options. We offer vinyl, fiber cement and wood soffits in addition to soffit vents and soffit repairs.
Your fascia board may include soffits for venting and provides a point of attachment for the gutters of your home as well as the drainpipes. This facilitates drainage from your roof and ensures that water doesn’t pool around the house during rainy season. We have fascia available in a wide variety of materials to match your home and can add new fascia, replace rotten fascia or reseal and repaint any old fascia. Call us today for more information.
