By implementing some of the most durable siding options on the market into our beautiful designs, we can help protect your home and keep you stress-free.
Get Your Dream Siding
Siding does more than protect your house. It brings life to your home’s exterior elevation. And as a homeowner, you should not have to choose between the two; you can have both!
As a siding contractor serving the Portland, OR community, we specialize in a variety of siding selections to ensure your home gets exactly what it needs. We install the following options:
The look of real wood siding remains an unbeatable aesthetic for homeowners. But nothing is more frustrating than deteriorating and failing siding. Having real wood siding that can keep your home safe comes down to choosing the right type of wood and having a siding contractor who knows how to properly install it.
We have helped hundreds of homeowners in the Portland, OR area get real wood siding and protect their homes with cedar. Cedar is one of the most durable softwoods, which makes it a great option when residing in your home.
Benefits of Cedar Siding
Cedar provides more to your home than just a pretty face. It offers you a variety of benefits that can help put your mind at ease when it comes to your exterior.
Cedar siding is environmentally friendly. Unlike other woods, cedar does not have to undergo as many processes and treatments, making it biodegradable.
The added benefit of insulation makes cedar a cost-effective wood. Once installed, cedar helps insulate a home, keeping warm air inside in the winter and cool air indoors during the summer.
Compared to other woods, cedar is extremely durable. It can stand up to rot and bacteria or mildew much better than other types of wood. It is also less likely to crack, swell, or warp.
Cedar is a lower-maintenance form of wood. While most woods need extensive cleanings, sealing, and repainting, cedar only needs to be cleaned and inspected twice a year and have a protective finish applied to its surface to keep it in the best shape.
Cedar is very customizable, and you can use a variety of staining techniques to achieve the exact look you want.
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber Cement is one of the most durable forms of siding. It is cost-effective. While it may be a more substantial investment than vinyl, it remains a more cost-efficient siding option than most other forms of siding. It also provides much more visual appeal than vinyl.
With thick boards composed of cement, sand, and wood pulp, fiber cement has become well known for its durability and impenetrability to the elements. However, these are only the beginning of this product’s many benefits.
The Upside of Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding has become popular in Portland, OR because it provides homeowners with unbeatable benefits. In addition to its sturdy nature, fiber cement is:
- Insect/pest resistant
- Fire proof
- Moisture resistant
- Weather durable
- Warping and crack resistant
- Low maintenance
It’s time to start enjoying the benefits that fiber cement offers.
Stone & Brick Siding
When your home’s siding is lacking, nothing can add instant curb appeal like the natural materials of stone and brick. Your home deserves more than a cookie cutter entrance. It deserves the best design and appeal it can possibly have.
Our team at Lifetime Exteriors has been helping homeowners with their front elevations for ten years, so we know how to enhance the aesthetics of your home’s entrance. We provide accent upgrades of brick and stone to give your home the edge it needs.
The Unmatched Benefits of Faux or Natural Stone
Stonework and brick elevate the front of an otherwise ordinary house and create the grand entry you have always dreamed about. But these elements provide additional benefits:
Environmentally Friendly – Not only do stone and brick look remarkable, but they are also some of the most natural and environmentally friendly building materials on the market.
Durability – These materials are unbeatable in their sturdiness, which is why they have been gracing home exteriors for hundreds of years. Some Portland homes still have bricks from the Hidden Brick Company dating back to the 1800’s! Do you need to protect items underneath your deck from the elements? Stone is an excellent choice.
Strong Insulation – Insulation equals energy efficiency, and energy bill saving can make the investment well worth it. They also provide excellent sound barriers.
Low Maintenance – You don’t have to worry about the headache of maintenance with stone and brick. They simply need to be cleaned periodically with a pressure washer. (But it’s also a good idea to have them professionally inspected every few years).
