Give Your Home New Life
As the protective exterior of your home, your siding is constantly battling the elements—hot sun, strong winds, precipitation in all forms, and the bitter cold of Minnesota winters. For that reason, durability and water resistance are the most important factors to consider when selecting siding products for your home. However, we’re firm believers that your siding should be as beautiful as it is functional. It’s the first thing people notice about your home, and as the old saying goes: “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” With today’s advanced siding technology, you don’t have to compromise appearance for performance.
Some siding is better suited to certain house styles than others. Our experienced crew members will carefully help you sort through your options to determine the best siding solution for your home. After decades of working with various siding products, we’ve narrowed down our favorites to two brands: Alside and LP SmartSide.
Alside has provided leadership and excellence within the exterior building products industry for over 70 years. Since introducing the first low-maintenance residential siding in 1947, Alside has been raising the bar on appearance and performance. Whatever your budget, you’ll find that Alside’s vinyl siding collection offers benefits for both you and the environment.
There’s a reason why vinyl siding is the most popular exterior cladding. It’s durable, easy to maintain, and extremely affordable. It also comes in an impressive array of styles and colors, all of which are covered in a protective layer that prevents fading. Alside vinyl siding is manufactured to protect against extreme weather conditions and improve the energy efficiency of your home. As an added bonus, Alside vinyl siding is friendlier to the environment than many other siding products, making it a great choice today and for generations to come.
Midwest Exteriors MN recommends three Alside vinyl siding product lines:
- Prodigy One-Piece Insulated Siding System
- Charter Oak
Don’t forget about the finishing touches. Alside siding products also include soffit, trim, and decorative accents. Soffit and decorative options add interest and a beautiful, easy to care for finish.
LP has been delivering innovative building products for over 40 years. They specialize in engineered wood products that are treated with a proprietary protective coating. Every strand of wood that goes into LP SmartSide trim and siding products is treated with an advanced formula of adhesive resins, water-resistant waxes, and zinc borate, followed by a water-resistant, resin-saturated overlay. The result: Four components of protection against water damage, termites, and fungal decay. LP SmartSide is one of the most durable siding solutions available on the market.
LP SmartSide products are also a superb choice to upgrade a home’s beauty and curb appeal. The rich cedar grain texture is especially appealing for accenting homes that are partially finished in stone, stucco, or brick. The beautiful contrast of these exterior claddings creates an architectural balance that’s visually appealing and welcoming.
When it comes to workability, LP SmartSide treated engineered wood siding works and cuts like traditional wood. It also weighs less and is easier to carry compared to other siding products. Why should you care about this? Because when siding is easy to work with and install, the installation process goes quickly and causes minimal disruption to your property.
In addition to choosing a quality siding material, you want to hire a siding contractor who will install it with great attention to detail.
