Commercial & Residential Siding Installation Experts
Siding shields your home or commercial building from the elements, so what you choose to clad your structure with can be a crucial decision. Siding should help to keep you cool in the summer and warm in winter, and it needs to withstand the elements and pests.
Replacing siding or installing new siding is a big investment that should endure for many years. Choosing durable siding that reduces long-term maintenance costs is one of the most important ownership decisions you will make. The old saying “you get what you pay for” is very true when it comes to siding!

Types of Siding
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding is the best siding of choice. Arrowhead is a fiber cement siding expert specializing in James Hardie® HardiPlank® and CertainTeed® WeatherBoards™. Fiber cement siding looks like wood, but is less expensive than natural wood and requires far less maintenance. Fiber cement does not undergo the same degree of expansion and contraction that hinders wood-based and vinyl siding, thus it will hold onto paint three to four times longer than wood. It’s resistant to termites, bugs, fire, high wind and hail, and does not buckle, warp or rot. If you’re willing to spring for cladding that looks great and functions well, fiber cement siding is the best available choice in the market.
Wood siding makes any home look classy. Timber siding fell out of popularity when vinyl was introduced, but modern technology has increased its functionality. Wood siding is durable, natural, environmentally friendly and easy to install or repair if necessary. Keep in mind the cost of painting wood siding and the cost of the materials make wood siding costlier than vinyl siding.
One of the disadvantages of wood is that it can foster mold which, if left untreated, will lead to rot and deterioration. The other reality of wood siding is that it cracks and warps, and even the best quality paints require repainting every five to seven years. Maintenance and repair costs tend to be higher with natural woods.
Quality vinyl siding, installed with skill and creativity, can add to your home or building’s curb appeal as well as its resale value. Vinyl siding has the lowest material cost and requires very little front-end maintenance after siding installation. We install vinyl upon request, however, we believe other siding materials provide a better return on investment.
