We Find an Ideal Solution for You
Ideal Siding can help you choose the right siding for your home. Choosing the right siding in Boulder is extremely important. Your house needs to be able to hold up to extreme high and low temperatures. It should handle thunderstorms and humidity as well as it handles snow piling up against the walls, freezing temperatures, and intense hail storms. Not to mention, you need an exterior that looks good on your home and is appropriate to your neighborhood.
Our company will guide you throughout the entire process and will answer any questions, relying on our vast experience in the industry and over 500 meetings held with clients each year.
You deserve only the best quality of materials and workmanship, that’s why we have the best crews in the industry and work with the most reputable suppliers. We understand the needs of local homeowners and are familiar with the trends in each neighborhood.
Siding Styles That We Offer
We offer lots of different kinds of siding, but experience has taught us that some options are better for Boulder than others. Here are some of the best siding styles for this area that can hold up to the harsh climate and look appropriate in the wide variety of neighborhoods in this area.
Plank is among the most versatile of all possible options. It can look completely different in different styles and applications. In fact, the chances are good that you will find this siding type everywhere, regardless of whether you live in a modern metropolitan neighborhood, a classic neighborhood with homes from the late 19th century, or a comfortable suburban home.
Plank comes in a number of different materials, with fiber cement and metal being some of the most durable options to hold up to the intense weather of Boulder. However, if you happen to live in one of the milder microclimates in this city, cedar planks can look beautiful, and vinyl can work very well too. Choose from a horizontal installation for a more classic look or a vertical one if you want something more contemporary.
Siding panels are a superb option for Boulder’s more modern, urban parts. They offer a sophisticated look and clean lines. Panels are cut on-site and provide a customized fit that is both good-looking and very resilient to the weather.
Choose a natural wood effect if you want to blend in more with the mountains or smooth panels for a more trendy look. If you’ve been hit by serious weather in the past and don’t want to take any chances with rain or hail, this option is great. Panels are a tough, heavy-duty option that looks great as well.
Shingles and Shakes
If you live in one of Boulder’s beautiful, historic homes, shakes or shingles might be your right siding choice. Many of these homes are brick. The brick can begin to deteriorate over time and needs to be protected with siding.
Perhaps you live in a more modern home in these neighborhoods, but you want to blend in with the historic homes. Shingles and shakes look classic, but they can be made of heavy-duty materials like fiber cement and vinyl that can hold up to even the worst thunderstorms. If you want a historically appropriate choice, cedar might be right for your home.
How Much Does Siding Cost?
There is as much variety in the cost as in the choices you have in siding. The material and type of siding you choose will greatly impact the price. Of course, the size of your home also impacts the cost of the siding. Whether it is straightforward in structure or has lots of angles and peeks, the construction of your home will also affect the price.
Here are some more siding options for you to choose from and their costs per sq.ft:
|Material||Price per sq ft*|
|James Hardie (Fiber Cement)||Starts at $12.00|
|LP® Smartside® (Engineered Wood)||Starts at $14.00|
|Vinyl Siding||Starts at $8.75|
|Premium Vinyl Siding||Starts at $9.50|
|Cedar Siding||Starts at $13.75|
|Stucco||Starts at $15.00|
|Longboard (Premium Aluminum)||Starts at $46.40|
|Cultured Stone||Starts at $42.50|
An important element impacting price that many people overlook is the condition of your current siding. When siding is damaged, the sheathing beneath may be damaged as well. In fact, if your siding has failed to protect your home from the weather for any amount of time, it’s possible that your home’s integrity may have been damaged. If that is the case, it will be necessary to make repairs before installing the new siding. This is why it is so essential not to wait to have new siding installed once you begin to see signs of damage or if you know that your siding is getting old.
While we’re happy to give you a quote based on what we can see of the condition of your current siding, we won’t really know what’s going on under the existing siding until we remove it. After years of siding installation, we’ve gotten very good at determining what conditions are like under your current siding, but there is always the possibility of unpleasant surprises.
