Key aspects to analyze in each siding quote beyond just the bottom line price include:

  • Material grade/quality: higher grades improve durability
  • Thickness gauge: higher numbers add stability
  • Warranty coverage terms: longer = better protected
  • Accessory inclusions: corner posts, trim, sealants etc.
  • Labor warranty period: 5 years minimum recommended
  • Beware limited “lifetime” warranties – read the fine print exclusions

Doing an apples-to-apples comparison on every line item and detail helps determine the best value siding investment for your home.

For open-joint shake or shingle, we recommend a water-resistive barrier (house wrap) covered by a rainscreen system. This uses a second layer of furring strips with drainage channels behind the siding. The house wrap blocks bulk moisture while allowing any small amounts that infiltrate to drain down and dry quickly. This prevents pooled water contact with the exterior sheathing that could cause rot over time. We have expert solutions to meet code requirements and manufacturer specs.

While extreme care is taken to protect your home, accidents can sporadically happen with any construction project. If any damage whatsoever occurs on our watch, you pay $0 costs. We have specialty insurance that handles claims rapidly and fairly with no deductible or risk for clients. Any needed repairs are fixed at our sole expense. This gives you total assurance selecting Mid America Exteriors knowing your property remains safe as we transform the exterior into a beautiful new showcase.
