Siding in Athens
As children, we are always told to never judge a book by its cover but when it comes to your Athens home it is sometimes necessary to follow this course of action—and the reason for this is simple. Whether we care to admit it or not, a drab exterior can depreciate the curb appeal of your home, while a vibrant siding option can immediately enhance the look and feel of your Athens home. The one thing that many homeowners in Athens fail to realize is that design and style in the interior of your home counts for nothing if the outside looks dilapidated and run-down. After all, most people who walk past your home will never enter your front door. And even if this doesn’t seem like a very big issue for you today, the reality is that if you ever decide to sell your home, then a poorly installed or under-maintained exterior siding could have a direct impact on your home’s visual appeal as well as its resale value. Don’t make this mistake, instead call Thomas O'Neal Roofing & Construction today and allow our skilled team to install, repair or maintain your home’s siding in a quick and effective way. Trust us, you won’t regret it.
Three Common Types of Wood Siding
Available in many types and styles, wood siding is an exterior cladding material that can be comprised of plywood, shingles or linear board lengths. There is a big difference between horizontal and vertical wood siding and there’s a range of other minor variations in the way that siding is joined or fitted together in the installation process. Three of the most popular types of wood siding include:
- 1. Vertical Siding: If you are looking to create an authentic rustic appeal to your Athens home then the installation of a range of vertical wooden siding could be the perfect choice for you. The vertical boards run the length of the wall are either butt joined or tongue and groove. On top of that there is the option to nail the ‘batten’ over for added protection and decorative effect.
- 2. Horizontal Siding: At Thomas O'Neal Roofing & Construction, we generally try to apply and install our overlapping horizontal boards of four to twelve inches in width with an overlap of two inched. The boards are usually installed so that the joints align vertically in alternating courses.
- 3. Plywood Siding: If you are looking for a low-cost and easy-installation alternative to traditional wood siding then plywood could be the perfect option for you. Usually, we place 4x8 foot sheets of plywood that can be installed directly onto wood studs. On top of that, our plywood is often grooved together to imitate the joints between traditional vertical boards.
