LP SmartSide Siding Installation with Malapai Stone

We do not recommend using Aluminum siding because it dents easily and is more difficult to repair.

We do not recommend using Vinyl siding because it fades quickly at high altitudes and also becomes brittle and then breaks easily.

A properly built home includes solid 1/2" sheathing underneath the siding.  The sheathing is then covered by a house-wrap.  After this the siding is installed and painted.  Below is a picture of one of our Design-Build projects in the siding phase:

We do siding repairs as well.  If you home has Hardi-plank cement board siding, your siding may not be properly nailed.  Numerous other contractors have been installing Hardi-plank without nailing it to the studs.  If you see signs of loose or flopping siding, call us to properly nail it before is starts blowing off.  We have seen several homes with cement board siding that has become loose and even blown off because of improper nailing. (see "the other guys" work).

House Wrap:

A quality siding job includes 1/2" OSB sheathing and a quality house wrap.  Although code only requires shear panels at specific locations, by installing 1/2" ply or OSB on the entire exterior, greater strength is acquired.  House wrap adds a small amount of R-value, but adds a lot in terms of wind penetration and rain protection.  In the picture below our carpenters are in the midst of installing house wrap over this new home in Flagstaff.
