With so many options to choose from, where do you begin?

We recommend you consider the following factors:

Durability

Consider the weather and climate in our area. You want to choose a siding option that provides your home the best protection from the extreme cold and snow in Michigan.

Water Resistance

Water causes rot and deterioration. The more water-resistant the material, the longer your siding will last—even with a heavy rainy season and moisture from melting snow.

Energy Efficiency

You’ll want to stay cozy all year long with as low an energy bill as possible.  Both the siding and the type of insulation underneath the siding will impact the energy efficiency of your home. Choosing a product with a higher R-value rating will give you a higher the insulating power.

Maintenance

Consider your lifestyle and habits.  Do you enjoy performing weekend maintenance on your home like seasonal pressure washing the siding?  Would you rather have the home repainted every few of years?

Aesthetics

You’ll want to match your personal preferences to the look of your home.  Choose siding that most appeals to you and compliments the style of your home. You want to be sure you will enjoy coming home to your new siding choice for years to come.

Ease of Installation

Although siding your home can be a DIY job, we recommend leaving it to the professionals. Allied Construction and Restoration is a family-owned and operated construction company with over 70 years of experience.

Cost

Siding options are available to meet any budget. Even within a product line, like James Hardie Fiber Cement siding, there are options to meet different financial goals.  Lap siding is generally a less expensive option than HardieShingles.  And Hardie Artisan siding offers top-of-the-line quality and style.
