Snow blanketed the ground this month and we know the last thing homeowners want to think about is exterior siding work. However, now isn’t a bad time to begin considering your options and visiting showrooms to research the topic. In this blog, we’ve compiled a short list of our siding services so that you’re aware of how we can help you refresh your home this spring. It’s time for a facelift!
Did you know that siding is a great way to add color and definition to your house? There are a lot of vinyl options these days to help you create the perfect façade and we want you to choose carefully. While aesthetics are definitely important, you also want to consider the material’s durability, ability to resist water, ease of installation and versatility. Or, if your siding is doing A-OK, there are some other options to clean up your home’s look!
- Vinyl Siding Installation
The low cost, versatility and easy maintenance of vinyl siding has helped it become the most popular siding choice in the Northern Virginia area. While some design professionals and homeowners are turned off by the “plastic look” of some vinyl siding products, the variety of colors and styles available helps explain this siding’s popularity.
- Dryvit & Stucco Repairs
Traditional stucco is made from building sand, cement, lime and water. A waterproof barrier paper and galvanized-metal screening are applied over wood walls before stucco is added to provide a good base for the stucco and protect the walls underneath. While stucco can be applied to homes with brick and stone surfaces, the classic look is commonly found on Mediterranean, ranch and Spanish-mission exteriors. We are experienced in a variety of stucco repairs.
- Pressure Washing
Old Man Winter probably won’t leave your home exterior the way you left it last fall. From dirt to bird droppings to general grime, many homeowners choose pressure washing as a cost-effective alternative to update the look of their home. However, please heed our warning: if you don’t know what you’re doing, you can damage your siding by blowing a hole through it. We’ve seen it happen before. Please consider hiring a licensed, professional contractor (like ourselves!) to save you the additional expenses of destroyed siding.
If you’re in the DC, VA, or MD area, we’d love to help you find the best vinyl option for your home or condo. Contact us today for a consultation: (703) 360-0205. Stay warm!
