Any Great Looking House Begins With The Siding
The exterior architecture and design of your property is incredibly important – both in terms of its appearance and its ability to protect your family from the harsh elements that the state of Illinois encounters. Not only is your exterior the first thing that people notice about your house, it keeps the rest of the structure of your house together.
Siding is the first line of protection for your home and you want to be sure that you choose the right material to fit your budget and keep the elements out. The elements and conditions that weather brings to the Windy City and the surrounding area are no laughing matter. When these elements come together in various combinations, sometimes on the same day, you need to know that your home can withstand the threat and still look impressive in the weeks that follow.
So how can you find a contractor that knows how to specialize in exterior construction and not just knows quality installation but knows what product would be best for your location? Look no further.
Gold Standard Restoration is one of the most trusted and relied upon companies in the greater Chicago area and we possess the handiwork to prove it. Our experts know more than just the nail and hammer; they are certified roofing installers, siding installers, and have a deep understanding of what it takes to build a complete exterior system for your home.
Though the siding on your home is the first line of defense against Mother Nature, it should also be both functional and provide curb appeal. However, many people ask what is siding and why is it so important? Simply put, your roof, siding, and gutters on your home create a system that acts as the very first line of defense against all of the elements that can tear your home apart.
Siding needs to stand up to high winds and heavy rain and hail storms that come through our cities. If the wrong material is used or even just improperly installed, siding can become a costly dilemma. We can help you find the right solution to fit your budget and your style.
We offer a range of siding construction options – from spot repairs to full replacement – to make sure you’re not only protected, but to make sure your home raises the standard for overall curb appeal. If you need some minor repairs, our experts can match your existing siding or if you’re looking for a full re-siding or remodel to your home’s exterior, Gold Standard Restoration offers a wide variety of colors and material.
We have a high standard that our quality products must meet before we use them on the exterior of your home. They are not only beautiful, they’re durable, weather-resistant, and energy-efficient. Some of the most popular siding products that we can install include the following:
- Vortex Extreme by Plygem
- Mastic Home Exteriors by Plygem
- James Hardie
- Royal Building Products
Plygem is a very well known company that GSR relies on because of the exterior siding material that they present to you and many other customers around the nation. We strongly suggest their Vortex Extreme style of siding because of the durability it brings to your home. This type of siding is made from thick, lasting material that has been tested in some of the worst types of scenarios and can resist the strong winds that we experience around the state.
The installation is extremely secure and it has been proven to stand up to the major dents that hail can cause and it can last the hard-hitting rain storms we often receive as well. Since it is made from recycled materials it is also eco-friendly and takes very low maintenance because of the long-lasting materials it is made from.
However if your home does not receive the immense amount of hail as many other parts of the state does, the other option we highly recommend from Plygem is the Mastic style. This particular type of siding they offer comes in several kinds of materials ranging from vinyl to aluminum and even steel. They even offer a completely different look to your exterior siding if you’re trying to find one by using shake and shingles or even a vertical style of siding.
These are just a few of the many options that we offer amongst many other providers we utilize in the remodeling process of your home. For an ultra-tough option we use James Hardie fiber cement siding which retains the look of cedar but is engineered to hold up to even the harshest conditions.
