When someone pulls up to your house, the exterior materials and roof are the first things they see. Not to mention, those materials are what is actually protecting what’s inside. Rotten wood, chipping paint and decaying trim not only looks bad, but can have serious negative ripple effects to the rest of your home if not properly maintained. It used to be a high maintenance endeavor to keep siding looking nice and functioning properly. This is why most people chose to get rid and go with stucco. But with some of the new materials on the market, you can have the best of both worlds: beauty and functionality. Our siding contractor Tampa can help you choose the right option for you.
The things we value most should last the longest and keep their beauty. This is especially true for our exterior of our homes. While most houses in Florida are covered in stucco, there are neighborhoods in the Tampa Bay area that are not. Areas like Old North East St. Pete, Carrollwood, Seminole Heights, Hyde Park, Historic South Tampa, and parts of Brandon. You will see a variety of materials used on the exteriors in these neighborhoods.
The goal was two fold:
1) Provide along lasting material,
2) Give the home a beautiful, unique look… In most cases this was accomplished. However, now these homes are showing their age and it’s time to replace the aging and degraded materials.
That’s why our siding contractor Tampa offers different options other than stucco to help keep the unique, classic look of the home, while adding a wow factor and curb appeal, using durable, long lasting modern materials. Fiber cement, or LP composite siding are a couple of products we use.
