So you should carefully decide on the design and color combination and consult an expert painter in order to be completely sure.

Exterior Painting And Siding Options

The first lesson to remember is to always choose a professional paint expert who knows his colors. He will know the right shade and material that can be used for your house. If you are planning to do it yourself, do remember that it is going to be a very long project to do it without professional help and the quality will not be even at all. Plus, if you make mistakes then the budget of the whole project will become higher than what it has to be. So don’t waste your time and money, hire our professional crew instead. The painting team at Chicago Remodeling company is one of the very best in the industry.

Once you have hired a professional, decided on the color and material, there are still some more decisions to be made before you can put brush to the paint.

1. Painting - Painting your house once every few years helps maintain a fresh look but it is time and money consuming. So you might want to reconsider the color scheme that you have been using all along and looking some alternatives.

2. Cement Fiber Siding - This is a versatile material that can give your siding the look of stucco, masonry and also wood. For many who want the natural look of wood but do not want the high maintenance that comes with it, this is an excellent option.

3. Stucco Siding - Stucco is made out of cement, water, lime, sand and a few other materials. It is a good option for customization and it can also be tinted to various shades. However, it is not very durable when it comes to high moisture areas.

4. Stone Veneer Siding - River rock, Limestone, slate granite and many other kinds of stones are used in many constructions for their high strength and durability properties. However, they tend to be prohibitively expensive for most people. So a precast stone veneer is the more affordable option to achieve the same effect.

5. Cedar Shingle Siding - These are shingles that have been made out of natural Cedar and hence look very beautiful. They have the twin advantages of looking like wood but having a much lower maintenance than clapboards made of wood. There’s also very minimal peeling because these shingles are stained and not painted.

6. Wood Clapboard siding - If you have a large home, you can choos to go with wood clapboard. You can choose from Cedar, Pine, Redwood and Cypress and you can then choose any kind of stain that you like. Wood siding is much more durable than vinyl siding and with proper maintenance it will continue to look good for many years to come.

7. Aluminum Siding - Aluminum siding is used by many builders because they are fireproof and extremely durable. They are generally used as a replacement for vinyl siding mainly because they won’t crack as Vinyl does. It is also popular because they are still considered to be traditional. It is also more or less maintenance free.

8. Vinyl Siding - This is the most affordable type of material for siding and many Chicago home owners have used it.

Aside from these popular options, you can also go for brick veneer siding, engineered wood siding and also seamless steel siding. Since there are so many options to choose from, it is important that you consult a professional Chicago Painting and Remodeling expert to do this. He will tell you which suits your need the best.
