Variety of Siding Materials and Styles

Embarking on a siding upgrade might feel overwhelming due to the various styles and materials available. However, we simplify the process by recommending options from industry-leading siding manufacturers to ensure the perfect match for your home.

The materials below are popular choices among Saint Paul and Minneapolis homeowners and come in a range of colors, textures, and patterns to suit any preference. Each one offers unique advantages tailored to protect your home’s structure from our region’s high humidity, rain, and snowfalls:

  • Vinyl siding. Vinyl siding’s seamless installation and weather-resistant properties make it an excellent choice for protecting your home against rain and snow. Its low-maintenance nature and moisture resistance ensure long-term durability, preserving your home’s appearance and structural integrity.
  • Aluminum siding. Coated with protective finishes, aluminum siding forms a barrier against moisture penetration, making it an ideal choice for combating the effects of rain and snow. Its lightweight yet durable nature offers longevity and requires minimal maintenance, ensuring lasting protection for your home.
  • Fiber cement  (James Hardie®) siding. Renowned for its durability and resistance to moisture, fiber cement siding, such as James Hardie®, shields your home from the effects of humidity and rain. Additionally, James Hardie® robust composition offers superior protection against the expansion and contraction caused by temperature fluctuations, ensuring longevity.
  • Cedar siding. Besides its natural beauty, cedar siding is prized for its natural resistance to decay and insects; it offers inherent protection against the elements. Its unique cellular structure allows it to absorb and release moisture, regulating humidity levels within your home and preventing moisture-related issues such as mold and mildew growth.
  • Engineered wood siding. Engineered wood siding combines the natural beauty of wood with advanced technology that allows it to withstand Minneapolis’s harsh winter weather. Its engineered design provides enhanced resistance to moisture infiltration, reducing the risk of rot and decay sometimes associated with traditional wood siding.

Whatever your siding design preference or home’s architectural style, we offer premium siding solutions to repair and safeguard your home against the challenges of humidity, rain, and snow while enhancing its beauty and longevity. You’ll be guaranteed decades of worry-free performance, whichever material you choose.

Lap Siding

Lap siding installation remains a beloved choice in Minneapolis, offering a timeless and inviting aesthetic. However, it doesn’t mean you’ll have a predictable, ‘cookie-cutter’ look. Options such as cottage lap, Dutch lap, nickel, or shiplap (horizontal board overlap) can infuse your home with your unique design preferences.

They give a charming, rustic allure, whether crafted from cedar, fiber cement, James Hardie®, or vinyl.

Our Work Process

At Ideal Siding® Twin Cities and Saint Paul company, we pride ourselves on completing the siding transformation process with minimal disruption to your daily routine. We only collaborate with skilled professional siding contractors with at least seven years of relevant siding installation experience. With our extensive expertise and client-focused approach, you’ll have complete clarity on the entire siding process. You can continue enjoying your everyday lifestyle, while our professionalism ensures peace of mind from start to finish.

Step 1
Old Siding Removal
Our first task is to remove your existing siding while carefully preserving the underlying sheathing. Depending on the project's size and the type of existing siding, this typically takes two to seven days. While materials like vinyl or cedar can be quickly removed, others, such as stucco or stone, may require more time. For new homes, we skip this step.
Step 2
Sheathing Inspection and Repair
We meticulously examine your sheathing for any signs of damage, such as rot or mold, that may require repairs before installation begins. We'll provide a cost estimate if repairs are needed and inform you of the expected timeframe, whether that's a few hours or several days. Fortunately, most homes don't need sheathing repair, so we typically proceed smoothly to the next step.
Step 3
Preparation of the Wall for Siding
We enhance your walls' durability by installing a rain screen, which promotes airflow between the sheathing and siding. This is an optional but recommended step, especially considering Minneapolis's summer humidity and winter snowfalls. We also add building paper, flashings, and strapping/mesh to safeguard against water damage.
Step 4
Siding Installation and Touch-up
Next, we install the siding and trim boards around windows, doors, soffits, overcap corners, and fascia boards. We incorporate insect screens, flashings, dryer vents, and light fixture boxes. Then, we meticulously apply touch-up paint to nails, ensuring a seamless, professional finish. Most installations take between 7 and 10 days, considering siding type, home size, and custom finishes.
Step 5
Clean-up and Waste Removal
Finally, we ensure a pristine property by cleaning up and recycling all construction debris, following industry best practices for disposal. The only evidence of our presence will be your stunning new siding, magically transforming your home's exterior.

Once the siding installation or repair is complete, your designated project manager will inspect the work thoroughly before arranging a meeting with you to discuss the details of the materials and workmanship warranties. Additionally, they’ll share invaluable maintenance tips to help maintain the beauty and durability of your new siding, ensuring it lasts for years to come and provides an excellent return on your investment.

And that’s it! Now, you can relax and take even more pride in your home, knowing it is protected by top-quality siding and impeccably installed by the best siding professionals in Minnesota. What’s more, you’ll appreciate the satisfaction of effortlessly obtaining the best price available, supported by industry-leading warranties.
