    "Honest approach to estimating the job. At first glance they were the highest of 3 estimates, but after review and discussion, they guaranteed no "extra charges" regardless of what was found post-tear off. Ultimately they had to replace every piece of wood due to warping or water-damage - and still honored their quote. I appreciated their integrity and excellent workmanship. Completed the job in 2 days (2,600 sq ft) and were neat and efficient throughout the project. Highly recommended!"

    "Trailer for disposal of used roof shingles was delivered early in the AM, 7 man crew came, covered the plants and began removing the old shingles. New shingles were delivered late AM. Shingle came off, nails still on the roof were removed. The entire job went off like a well oiled machine and the job was done by mid afternoon along with the clean up. (Some of the plastic wrap from the new shingles blew into the neighbor's fenced yard and the guys had to get a rake to gather the plastic wrap for disposal.) Great job."

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?

Chicago Cedar Siding

Curb appeal is an important factor in choosing a siding for many homeowners. Though function needs to be taken into consideration, as well, when you look at your house from the street, it's the rare person that doesn't care at all what he or she sees. Aside from the pleasure homeowners take in their houses' appearance, curb appeal can also be a deciding factor when it comes to selling a property, making it a practical concern, too.

That being said, no honest contractor will be able to tell you with a straight face that, in a climate like you find in Chicago, cedar siding is the most practical choice for your home. In fact, cladding your home with cedar siding in Chicago is a decision that will probably be based mostly on appearances. Vinyl, fiber-cement, and aluminum are generally less expensive to install, and will almost certainly be easier to take care of than cedar siding. Chicago's annual precipitation levels and temperature changes can have a very detrimental effect on any outdoor wood, but, if you're willing to take care of it, very few things are as attractive or have as much classic appeal as natural wood siding.

Benefits of Cedar Shake Siding
Moist environments that see both freezing and blistering temperatures every year are generally not thought to be the best places to have wood outside. However, folks in New England, where conditions are far from optimal, have long enjoyed the appearance of wood sided homes; in Chicago, cedar shake siding is likely to look just as good and hold up just as well as it does in a place like New Hampshire, but you have to be prepared to do a little work to keep it functioning well.

Of course a home can be clad using whatever species of wood you like (though some might be more difficult to find in shingle or shake form), but there are several advantages offered by cedar that make it one of the preferred choices for outdoor wood. First, it contains an oil that makes it naturally resistant to warping and bowing. If left exposed, cedar holds up relatively well; if untreated it develops a weathered look that many find very appealing, while still remaining functional. This same oil makes cedar resistant to bugs and rot.

Drawbacks of Cedar Siding
Though it has an appearance that is almost universally appealing, you'll have to have some patience with cedar siding. Chicago residents looking for a siding material that you can put up and practically forget about should really choose vinyl, fiber cement, aluminum, or some other material that's designed to be low maintenance. Cedar will require yearly attention; if it doesn't get it, there's no way that it will make it to its full life expectancy.

Cedar siding is also a more expensive material than many of the other cladding options on the market. Basically, putting cedar siding on a home in the Chicago area will have to be a labor of love. It's more expensive (at least more expensive than aluminum or vinyl; wood siding is about the same cost as fiber cement and far less expensive than brick or stone), requires more upkeep, and is more susceptible to environmental conditions than several other options, but if you really want the look, feel, or even the smell of natural wood, cedar is probably your best choice.

Chicago Cement Siding

Of all of the options available for cladding your home in Chicago, cement siding is one of the more practical. Developed by James Hardie (and often called Hardie board), cement siding was designed to be a tough, weather resistant option for homes in harsher climates. Though it is not as popular as vinyl siding is in and around Chicago, cement siding may just be the better choice for your home. If you're looking to change the appearance of your existing home, or are considering options for a house you're building, cement siding is well worth a second glance.

Cement Board Siding vs. Vinyl Siding
One of the reasons why vinyl siding is so popular in the Windy City, and all over the country, is because of its extremely low maintenance requirements. Once it is up, there's little need to do much to it but rinse it off every once in a while. It doesn't rot or warp like wood siding, and it doesn't dent like aluminum. Basically, a home clad in properly installed vinyl siding will look good for a long time, with very little upkeep.

Unlike vinyl siding, cement siding must be painted to be effective (however, the material is designed to hold paint much more effectively than something like wood or aluminum). For all of the do-it-yourselfers in Chicago, cement board siding is one material that is generally installed only by professionals. Its handling and installation require special tools and techniques, making it a poor DIY project.

You might now wonder what makes covering a home with cement siding in Chicago such a great idea. The fact is, unless you're going with something very expensive like brick or stone, cement board siding is pretty much the toughest option on the market. In Chicago, cement board siding is even likely to reduce insurance rates because of its remarkable ability to hold up under so many different conditions.

Benefits
Cement siding is extremely resistant to moisture, and unaffected by temperature changes (which can be an issue with vinyl siding as it tends to expand and contract a great deal). It is wind resistant to such a degree that it is required in some locations where hurricanes and tornadoes are commonplace. It doesn't melt when exposed to heat or fade when exposed to sunlight (two other problems associated with vinyl siding), and is virtually fire-proof. No matter what time of year it is or what kind of crazy weather Mother Nature decides to throw at Chicago, cement siding is going to be able to handle it and keep handling it for many years to come.

Siding Costs
Though far less expensive than brick or stone, price is often the reason why homeowners opt for vinyl over cement siding. Chicago residents should be aware, however, that the difference in cost might be well worth the added performance of this versatile, durable material. The average cost of installing vinyl siding in the Chicago area is a little less than $11,000, with prices ranging anywhere from $5,000 to $25,000. The average cost of installing cement siding in Chicago is just less than $14,000. The range in price from job to job is a lot smaller, however, and it is likely that you can have good quality cement siding installed on your home for less than the price of a high-end vinyl siding. As always, make sure to get several estimates from a few different contractors; as a homeowner, this is the best way to get the best quality job at the lowest price!
