Types of Siding Common in St. Louis

When it comes to your home’s curb appeal, having beautiful and functional siding can make a world of difference. Mosby has craftsman and consultants that are educated and certified in the installation of several types of siding.  Each siding product has different attributes that make them appealing to homeowners.

Engineered Wood Siding

Engineered wood siding like LP SmartSide, gives the look of natural wood siding but without the common maintenance and problems of real wood like termite damage, fungal decay, and regular painting or staining. A bonus feature of this brand of siding is LP’s 30-year warranty.

Insulated Siding

Insulated siding has a foam backer behind the siding boards that increase energy efficiency for your home which will reduce heating and cooling costs. Like engineered wood siding, Insulated siding such as CertainTeed’s vinyl CedarBoards has the look of natural wood and comes in many sizes and finishes. This particular siding product from CertainTeed has a lifetime limited warranty.

Fiber cement siding offers a very durable and beautiful option for your home. James Hardie is one of the leading fiber cement siding companies in the world. Their fiber cement siding is moisture and rot resistant. James Hardie has a baked-on color option that will resist color fading. It’s also insusceptible to pests.

Other Types of Siding

Other options of siding that Mosby recommends is Boral’s TruExterior Siding and Trim products, including their Bevel Siding Collection and Craftsman Collection. Both products replicate the look of cedar and redwood siding. Unlike actual cedar and redwood siding, Boral’s TruExterior products don’t need the maintenance that is often required with real wood.

Exteriors by Mosby can provide long-lasting curb appeal from our architectural design experts and experienced installation crews. Mosby also offers peace of mind with our 10-year workmanship warranty.
