He gave me an estimate on when he could come by the house (which was later that same day), then called back to confirm as the appointment approached. He arrived on time, identified the source of the problem (which was a water leak behind the siding), and fixed it using some nifty plumbing skills. :-) Good work. Great communication.

Things to Consider Before You Add or Replace Wood or Fiber-Cement Siding:

  • What type of project is this?
  • What kind of siding do you want to have installed?
  • How many stories is your home?

Austin Cedar Siding

From vinyl to Hardie board to aluminum, there are several options on the market for cladding your home. The siding that is generally considered the most beautiful, though, is cedar siding. While more expensive, a home in Austin with cedar siding will undoubtedly stand out in neighborhoods full of vinyl. This doesn't mean that you're going to be viewed as pretentious, either. Cedar has a naturally warm and inviting look, as opposed to the stuffier look of stone siding. The other great advantage of installing cedar siding in Austin is the unmatched insulating quality of the wood that reduces both heat loss and noise levels.

Cedar Shake Siding and other Cedar Siding Options:

Cedar Shake Siding in Austin: Cedar shake siding is made from a slightly different process than other wood sidings. The logs are split with an axe instead of sawn on all sides, giving the shingles a slightly different appearance that many homeowners prefer.

Cedar Beveled Siding in Austin: Cedar siding can also be beveled by creating shingles of different thicknesses. This requires re-sawing the lumber and the process costs more, but it produces a truly stunning siding for your home.

Cedar Paneled Siding in Austin: Cedar paneling is made from shingles. These shingles, however, are mounted on sheets of plywood to create a panelized look.

Maintaining your Cedar Siding
You may have heard that cedar siding can't compete with the durability and longevity of other siding materials. This is partially true. Cedar has natural antifungal properties that allow it to perform better than any other wood siding. Even untreated cedar siding will last for a good number of years. On the other hand, it's not indestructible and will eventually show signs of deterioration before its synthetic counterparts. You should probably reseal your cedar siding every couple years. Cedar siding that is properly cared for can last as long, if not longer, than poorly cared for vinyl siding. Finally, even with the relatively dry climate in Austin, cedar siding's biggest enemy is water. The quicker your cedar can dry after it rains, the longer it will last. Don't allow a lot of trees and plants near the side of your home, as they will trap air and increase the drying time of your siding.

Cost and Project Length
Cedar siding is more expensive than some other options, but not necessarily completely out of most price ranges, either. It's difficult to say exactly how much your Austin cedar siding will cost because so many factors go into the final price. More than just thickness and coating treatments, the type of cedar will also have an impact on the cost. You can choose red cedar from the Pacific Northwest or white cedar from Canada (a little more expensive, but more durable and considered more attractive). Generally speaking, cedar siding is comparable or a little more expensive than the average cost of vinyl siding ($7,500), but not nearly as much as stone siding ($12,000). Of course, part of the cost of cedar siding includes extensive pre-coating and/or resealing treatments every few years.

One of the reasons Austin cedar siding can be more expensive has little to do with the material itself. Cedar siding installation is labor-intensive. It may take a while to install and needs to be done by a professional. Count on spending a week or two with a contractor pounding his or her hammer against your home. Of course, if nobody tends to be in your home during the day and you're not in a huge rush, this isn't a major inconvenience, like a kitchen remodel often is. Plus, while Austin siding companies can't control the cost of building materials, they can often cut labor costs. By taking the time to talk to multiple contractors, you can often find someone who will install your cedar siding in Austin for less than many of the competitors.

Austin Hardie Board Siding

As many things as you have going on in your home, the last thing you probably want is to worry about the maintenance on something as basic and permanent as your siding. Hardie board siding in Austin is truly a virtually maintenance-free siding option. It's the strongest siding on the market, is impervious to even the most severe weather, and is water, fire, and pest-resistant.

If that wasn't enough, it's also a beautiful siding that's specifically engineered to simulate the look and warmth of wood siding without any of the drawbacks. It must be painted to protect it and produce these effects, but it also absorbs and retains the paint longer than any other siding out there. With paint and color treatments, the final look of your Austin Hardie siding is really whatever you want it to be.

Hardie Plank Siding
Hardie board siding is also called Hardie plank siding. There's no difference, although you can purchase this type of siding in an assortment of sizes and designs. In essence, Hardie siding is fiber-cement originally engineered more than a hundred years ago for the Australian housing market. Since then, this siding has been used throughout the entire world and is increasingly popular in the southern United States. It's affordable, durable, and doesn't have the same flimsy feel of the vinyl siding that's so popular in the north.

Cost of an Installation
Most Hardie board siding is slightly more expensive than vinyl, but cheaper than other siding installations. Still, the maintenance-free, long-lasting quality of Hardie board makes it arguably the most cost-effective siding on the market. The average cost of an Austin Hardie board siding installation is about $5,000-$7,000. Of course, the biggest factor is the size of your home. You can easily spend as little as $3,000 or as much as $10,000. For perspective, you might save as little as a few hundred dollars by choosing vinyl instead. In any case, you should talk to multiple Austin Hardie board siding contractors about your project.

Project Length
No siding installation is easy, but Hardie plank siding requires special installation methods. Some forms require predrilled holes and any Hardie siding must be installed with care and delicate handling to prevent cracking the brittle material. Once your Austin Hardie siding is in place it's all but indestructible; an ill-placed hammer strike, though, can immediately ruin a plank. Unless you know exactly what you're doing, it's better to leave installation to an Austin Hardie siding contractor.

As for project duration, an Austin Hardie plank siding project takes, on average, about one to two weeks; even the best of circumstances probably means multiple days. One reason siding installation may take a while is that many homeowners opt to have the work done when they're not home. The constant pounding outside your home makes it difficult to do much, especially relax, while the contractor is working. If you work during the day, this usually works out just fine. Otherwise, it may take some scheduling flexibility to prevent installation from becoming a nuisance.
