Material

For those with commercial or multi-family siding needs, there are a couple different materials to choose from. About half of residencies and businesses in Colorado use wood siding, however, there are many other options available.

Wood

Wood is such a popular option because it has a very welcoming look that appeals to a large audience. At DJK siding, we use only the most durable cedar wood that’s both inherently hardy and weather-resistant. Another benefit to wood siding is that it is easy to stain, adding beautiful rich tones and new dimensions to your home or business allowing people to get exactly what they’re looking for.

 

Unlike other siding materials, cedar can actually look better with age. Instead of rotting or succumbing to insect infestation or the weather, cedar takes on a more rich, rustic look that many homeowners enjoy. However, if natural wood siding is not what you’re looking for, you can also choose to go down the route of engineered wood siding. Contact DJK Siding and Construction if you have any questions.

Vinyl

Vinyl siding was a material that took slightly longer to develop and become popular among home and business owners. It was originally introduced in the 1950s when it was rejected for not being durable or attractive enough. However, vinyl siding products have made a return and they’re better than ever. The advanced material composition and innovative manufacturing techniques used to produce vinyl siding offer an affordable option that is both beautiful and high-functioning.

Another benefit to vinyl siding is that it’s easy to install and it’s more affordable than most siding options. This makes vinyl a great option for multi-family homes. Since these homes are large, you’ll want an option that both fits your budget and will last for years to come with little maintenance.

Aluminum

This siding material followed a similar path as vinyl siding material. The first time it entered the market, it didn’t meet homeowners’ high standards. However, it has made its return as a viable siding option for multi-family homes and commercial buildings alike. One of the great benefits to aluminum siding is that it’s essentially maintenance free. You may need to wash it down every once in a while, however, even in Colorado’s dry climate, you shouldn’t have a need to do this. Aluminum siding is always insect, fire, and weather-resistant so you’ll never have to worry about costly repairs.

Fiber Cement

Fiber cement is a relatively new siding material. Since fiber cement has so many textures, colors, and panel styles available, you’ll have more than enough options to get exactly the look you want and need for your multi-family home. Unlike some other siding options, fiber cement is both fade and crack resistant meaning you’ll never have to worry about repairing or reinstalling your siding in order to prevent damage or wear and tear on your home. Fiber cement requires little effort to upkeep and the installation is simple, saving you time and money.
