FAQs About Lap Siding in Wichita

The most popular options for lap siding we install are vinyl, engineered wood, and fiber cement lap siding. Vinyl offers durability and affordability while fiber cement resists impact damage. Engineered wood has the aesthetics of natural wood. We help you select the right type for your goals.

Pricing can vary based on the lap siding product used and complexity of the project. As examples, basic vinyl lap siding costs $5-7 per square foot installed, while engineered wood lap siding averages $8-12 per square foot for the finished installation. Fiber cement averages $10-15 per square foot installed.

If your lap siding remains structurally intact, repainting it can make financial sense. But issues like cracks, buckling, rotting, inadequate moisture barriers etc. are signs you need full replacement for longterm performance. Our team provides honest assessments on whether repairs or new siding is better for your home.

The full siding replacement timeline can vary based on house size, materials, and weather delays. On average for a 2,000 sq. foot home, the lap siding installation takes 1-2 weeks with proper crew size and barring severe storms or cold temperatures.

Insulated lap siding can provide added energy efficiency by reducing heat/cold transfer through your walls. This extra insulation leads to lower energy bills. Based on your climate and usage, we advise whether investing in insulated backing provides good ROI.

Our certified installers use advanced measuring tools for precision. We account for wall size, angles, low/high spots, removing guesswork that leads to ill-fitting panels. Expert measurements means tightly fitted, uniform seams that resist moisture entry.

Proper specialty tools are vital for lap siding installation. Our crew uses siding jigs, angle gauges, table saws fitted with fiber cement blades, staging/scaffolding, metal brake for custom flashing, and commercial grade pneumatic fastener guns to provide tight seams and proper nail placement without damaging planks.

Pre-finished lap siding saves time and money with fewer steps compared to onsite finishing. But raw siding allows color customization. Fiber cement and engineered wood profiles offer lots of pre-finished options replicating wood types and colors. We help weigh the pros and cons for your particular home.

Lap siding should be installed with proper exposure (visible area) based on manufacturer guidelines to allow for expansion/contraction. As a standard, we use maximum 6 inches for vinyl, 6.5 inches for cement fiber, and 8 inches for engineered wood planks. Proper exposure provides ideal protection.
